Graduates’ Master’s theses

Adamastor Dos Santos Solène

Radiological Medical Imaging Technology major

This study is an evaluation of the BOLD CO2 signal acquired in functional MRI and used to estimate cerebrovascular reserve. Examination is indicated when planning revascularisation surgery in the context of vascular lesions caused by Moyamoya disease.

Orientation Nutrition et diététique

Exploring the relationship between nutritional knowledge, eating behaviors and body image in young women 
Living in a society where body dissatisfaction is very prominent, young women are highly affected by eating disturbances. Yet, how nutritional knowledge is related to different eating behaviors and body dissatisfaction in a non-clinical environment is unexplored.

Artificial intelligence in osteoarticular imaging: the role of the medical radiology technician?
Medical radiology technicians use a range of Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems. These have improved considerably over time, thanks to Deep Learning (DL) and Big Data. The “artificial intelligence (AI) revolution” is disrupting the world of radiology.

Borloz Sylvie

Nutrition and Dietetics major

Observation of food intake among obese adolescents aged 12 to 14 and their parents’ educational style using a mobile application
Obesity is caused by multiple factors; treatment of obesity focuses on lifestyle, and in particular eating a balanced diet. There is a lack of data in Switzerland on the quality of obese adolescents’ diets and their parents’ educational style in relation to food, which may influence their eating habits.

Midwifery major

Post-partum application of honey to perineal lesions: a randomised controlled trial
The prevalence of perineal lesions following vaginal delivery varies between 53 and 79%. These cause women significant side effects, such as pain. Honey has been shown to have healing, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties in many scientific studies.

Glannaz Marie and Paley Aurélie

Physiotherapy major

Maximal workload capacity, the ability to walk and strength in the two lower limbs are reduced following a cerebrovascular accident (CVA). Few studies have investigated the effects of aerobic retraining of muscle strength and its long-term impact.

Gulizia Marianna

Radiological Medical Imaging Technology major

This research is part of the European Sonotherag project. Its aim is to develop theranostic nanotechnology for use in oncology. The objective of this research is to analyse the capacity to concentrate perfluorocarbon (PFOB) nanoparticles in a tumour using a targeted application of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU).

Gullo Giuseppe

Radiological Medical Imaging Technology major

A randomised study comparing two techniques for peripheral insertion of a central catheter. Electrocardiographic guidance and fluoroscopic guidance techniques
The emerging technology of electrocardiographic guidance coupled with electromagnetic guidance (ECG-EM) for peripheral insertion of central catheters (PICC) has shown promising results compared with the so-called “blind” technique. However, there are no solid data comparing ECG-EM guidance to fluoroscopic (FX) guidance, which is seen as the “gold standard”.

Ho Van Nhut and Marmy Laurent

Radiological Medical Imaging Technology major

Now, in the era of thefourth industrial revolution, robotisation, computerisation, digitisation and artificial intelligence are central to the debate. The change in medical radiology techniques used in the workplace is a well-known phenomenon.

Sohier Aurélie

Occupational Therapy major

Inclusive schooling is based on collaboration and sharing between professionals. These exchanges are essential to offer pupils services that meet their needs, regardless of their complexity (Jendoubi, Guilley, Brudelin, & Cecchini, 2017). For Thomazet and Mérini (2016), collaboration goes further than a simple juxtaposition of provision.

On-road assessment is seen as the gold standard because of its ecological validity. There is currently no such system of measurement in French-speaking Switzerland.
