Sammanfattning : Healthcare is an important and high cost sector that involves many decision-making tasks based on the analysis of data, from its primary activities up till management itself. A technology that can be useful in an environment as data-intensive as healthcare is machine learning. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Sweden and Norway have the worldwide highest incidence of osteoporotic fractures. As these fractures constitute a tremendous and growing problem, primary prevention is of great importance. The principal causes of an osteoporotic fracture are a fall and a fragile skeleton. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background and objectives: Patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) have an increased risk of bone loss with development of osteoporosis and vertebral fractures (VFs) but also spinal new bone formation with growth of bony spurs (syndesmophytes) between the vertebrae. Measurements of spinal bone mineral density (BMD) by the routine method dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in anteroposterior (AP) projection can be difficult to interpret due to the spinal new bone formation.

Sammanfattning : Background: Bone quality, bone strength, and bone remodelling are important in many orthopaedic conditions and can have an impact on fracture incidence, bone healing, implant failure, and different outcome aspects. There is relatively sparse information on fracture incidence and mortality both for all fractures compiled and for some of the individual fracture locations. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients (disease duration ≤1 year, n=165) were recruited 1995-2001 and followed systematically clinically and with dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) over 2 years and compared to age- and gender-matched controls. Baseline arm and leg lean mass were decreased in RA patients in both genders and body mass index and truncal fat distribution were increased in female RA patients. LÄS MER
