1. Computer-aided diagnosis scheme for identifying histological classification of clustered microcalcifications by use of follow-up magnification mammograms.
Match Strength: 4.562
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Our purpose in this study was to investigate the usefulness of follow-up magnification mammograms (i.e., both current and previous magnification mammograms) in a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) scheme for identifying the histological classification of clustered microcalcifications. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our database consisted of current and previous magnification mammograms obtained from 93 patients before and after 3-month follow-up: 11 invasive carcinomas, 19 noninvasive carcinomas of the comedo type, 25 noninvasive carcinomas of the noncomedo type, 23 mastopathies, ...

2. Visual plate waste in hospitalized patients: length of stay and diet order.
Match Strength: 4.102
The purpose of this pilot research was to investigate the effect of diet order, sex, diagnosis, and length of stay on visual lunch plate waste in hospitalized patients. Information on 346 patients was collected using the computer program CBORD Diet Office. Visual plate waste during lunch was measured and analyzed for 4 consecutive days. Neither sex nor diagnosis at admittance was associated with visual plate waste. However, the odds of visual plate waste increased by 14.1% for every day a patient was admitted. In patients receiving a diabetic diet order, odds of visual plate waste decreased by ... Read More »

3. The itching, burning eye: diagnostic algorithm and management options.
Match Strength: 3.383
The healthy ocular surface is a complex, composite unit that is essential for patient comfort and visual function. A number of components need to work in an integrated manner to ensure that this is achieved, and a variety of causes can result in the final common symptom complex that can be termed the itching, burning eye. Many of these causes may be due to relatively common and simple issues related to lid disease, allergies, tear dysfunction, excessive computer use, exposure to polluted environment, and convergence problems. However, a smaller group may have potentially more serious pathology ... Read More »

4. Current status of digital mammography for screening and diagnosis of breast cancer.
Match Strength: 3.126
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Digital mammography is becoming the preferred technique for investigation of the breast. It is important, therefore, to analyze not only the accuracy of this technique in the screening and the diagnostic environment but also to evaluate its strengths and limits. In addition, communication with other specialists inside and outside the hospital is essential. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent publications of large clinical trials have shown that digital mammography is as accurate as film-screen mammography in a screening setting. Technical protocols for acceptance testing of these ... Read More »

5. Identification of clinically featureless incipient melanoma using sequential dermoscopy imaging.
Match Strength: 2.787
OBJECTIVES: To examine the role of sequential dermoscopy imaging in detecting incipient melanoma and to elucidate the impact of length of follow-up on the relevance of observed changes. DESIGN: Baseline and follow-up images of melanomas and melanocytic nevi excised only because of changes across time were inspected on a computer screen and assessed according to prospectively defined criteria. Lesions were stratified into 3 groups according to the length of follow-up. SETTING: Three hospital-based referral centers in Europe and Australia.Patients Four hundred sixty-one patients selected for ... Read More »

6. Analysis of location specific observer performance data: validated extensions of the jackknife free-response (JAFROC) method.
Match Strength: 2.717
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: The free-response paradigm is being increasingly used in the assessment of medical imaging systems. The currently implemented method of analyzing the data, namely jackknife free-response (JAFROC) analysis, has some validation and applicability limitations. The purpose of this work is to address these limitations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The general principles of modality evaluation and methodology validation are reviewed. A model for simulating free-response data was used to test the statistical validity of several methods of analyzing the data. The methods differed ... Read More »
