Human papillomavirus 16 (HPV16) is a predominant cause of cervical neoplasia. However, no population-based study with long-term follow-up has clarified the temporal relationship between HPV16 infection and occurrence of carcinoma in situ, or the importance of recurrent or persistent infection. This nested case-control study was carried out in a(More)
AIM To quantify the effects of using prismatic glasses including optometric correction, on head and neck kinematics, perceived exertion and comfort, during work in the oral cavity. METHODS The study population consisted of forty-five participants. After a basic ergonomic education, baseline measurements of head and neck kinematics were made using(More)
Irradiation to the thyroid gland was measured during cardiac catheterization in 16 infants and 30 children aged 1 to 13 years. The doses from fluoroscopy, full-scale angiocardiography, and cineradiography were measured separately with thermoluminescent dosimeters and, in addition, the exposure-area product was assessed during fluoroscopy with a transparent(More)
Cytologic screening for cervical cancer has proven to be beneficial in many countries, although the value of this intervention in women older than 50 years remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficiency of detecting cancer in situ by means of a cytologic smear at different ages, with special emphasis on the benefit of(More)
At urologic radiography of infants and children, the energy imparted and the absorbed doses to gonads, breasts and thyroid were measured and the mean absorbed dose to the bone marrow calculated. The influence on the doses of different screen-film systems, numbers of exposures and the projection used was analysed. The risk of future radiation induced(More)
It has been shown that intravenously injected pertechnetate enters the CSF space and also that a transport of pertechnetate ions to the blood occurs when injected into the ventricles. Activity curves obtained by repeated samplings of CSF after intravenous injection of pertechnetate appears to differ at different levels of the intraventricular pressure but(More)
Cervical cancer incidence and mortality can be reduced by removal of precursor lesions detected at cytological screening. Organised screening, i.e. regular invitation of defined target groups, is generally considered more effective than opportunistic screening. The latter method however, is predominant in most settings. There is no scientific basis for(More)
A comparison of the energy imparted during diagnostic radiographic procedures at the University Hospital in Lund during 1958 to 1960 and during 1974 revealed an unexpected, low decrease during the intermediate period. The influence of various technical factors on the irradiation of the patient was estimated and attempts made to explain the discrepancy(More)
