A dose-volume histogram based decision-support system for

Dec 29, 2015 · A dosimetric comparison system, the dose distribution index (DDI), is proposed to assist in the choice of radiotherapy treatment plans for any given cancer patient. DDI simultaneously takes into account key dosimetric issues as dose coverage, conformity and homogeneity over the PTV, as well as sparing of OARs and the RVR. Chapter 7 Risk and Hazard CharacterizationRisk characterization must exhibit the core values of transparency, clarity, consistency, and reasonableness. The final step of a risk assessment is the calculation of the upper-bound excess lifetime cancer risks (risk) and noncarcinogenic hazards (hazard) for each of the pathways and receptors identified in Chapter 4.

Comparison of 4 Risk-of-Malignancy Indexes in the

Comparison of 4 Risk-of-Malignancy Indexes in the Preoperative Evaluation of Patients With Pelvic Masses:A Prospective Study Yorito Yamamoto, Aki Tsuchida, Takashi Ushiwaka, Ryuhei Nagai, Mitsuhiro Matsumoto, Junko Komatsu, Hiromi Kinoshita, Susumu Minami, Kazutoshi Hayashi Abstract Comparison of the predictive performance of risk of ROMA value 11.4%=high risk of finding epithelial ovarian cancer. ROMA value <11.4%=low risk of finding epithelial ovarian cancer. Postmenopausal women:ROMA value 29.9%=high risk of finding epithelial ovarian cancer. ROMA value <29.9%=low risk of finding epithelial ovarian cancer. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS version 19. Comparison of three malignancy risk indices and CA-125 in Jun 20, 2011 · Patients with pelvic mass are the most referred patients to gynecologist. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of three malignancy risk indices (RMI 1, RMI 2 and RMI 3) and CA-125 to discriminate a benign from a malignant pelvic mass in our region (North of Iran). This retrospective study was performed on 182 women with pelvic masses referred to Yahyanejad Hospital from 2007 to

Evaluation of Individuals With Pulmonary Nodules:When Is

Sep 24, 2012 · Solid Nodules > 8 mm. In the individual with a solid, indeterminate nodule that measures > 8 mm in diameter, we suggest that clinicians estimate the pretest probability of malignancy either qualitatively by using their clinical judgment and/or quantitatively by using a validated model (Grade 2C).. 4.2.4 FOUR RISK OF MALIGNANCY INDICES IN EVALUATION negative predictive values, and diagnostic accuracy of four risk of malignancy indices (RMIs:RMI 1, RMI 2, RMI 3, and RMI 4) were obtained for diagnosis of a malignant pelvic mass. Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load Linus Pauling Institute Summary. The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of the blood glucose-raising potential of the carbohydrate content of a food compared to a reference food (generally pure glucose). Carbohydrate-containing foods can be classified as high- (70), moderate- (56-69), or low-GI (55) relative to pure glucose (GI=100).

Health at a Glance 2019 :OECD Indicators OECD iLibrary

Health at a Glance compares key indicators for population health and health system performance across OECD members, candidate and partner countries. It highlights how countries differ in terms of the health status and health-seeking behaviour of their citizens; access to and quality of health care; and the resources available for health. Role of prostate health index to predict Gleason score Aug 31, 2021 · Kim, H., Jung, G., Kim, J.H. et al. Role of prostate health index to predict Gleason score upgrading and high-risk prostate cancer in radical prostatectomy specimens. Sci Rep 11, 17447 (2021 Screening Tests to Detect Colorectal Cancer and Polyps In the United States, colorectal cancer is most common in adults aged 65 to 74. Rates of new colorectal cancer cases are decreasing among adults aged 50 years or older due to an increase in screening and to changes in some risk factors (for example, a decline in smoking) ().However, incidence is increasing among younger adults (2 4) for reasons that are not known.

Study Compares Four Genomic Tests for Breast Cancer

Researchers compared the ability of four genomic tests:Breast Cancer Index -- analyzes the activity of 7 genes. Prosigna Breast Cancer Prognostic Gene Signature Assay -- analyzes the activity of 58 genes. to predict distant recurrence -- the cancer coming back in a part of the body away from the breast -- for 0 to 10 years and 5 to 10 years The Adnexal Mass and Early Ovarian CancerPara-ovarian cyst 4 1.4 Endometriosis 28 10 Dysgerminoma 1 0.3 Malignant epithelial 4 1.4 Benign teratoma 9 3 Benign epithelial 32 11 Ovarian neoplasms 46 16 Required exploratory laparotomy 81 28 Regressed under observation 205 72 Type of Cyst # of Patients % The Management of Ovarian Cysts in Postmenopausal CA125 should be the only serum tumour marker used for primary evaluation as it allows the Risk of Malignancy Index (RMI) of ovarian cysts in postmenopausal women to be calculated. [New 2016] CA125 levels should not be used in isolation to determine if a cyst is malignant. While a very high value
