TLDR
This paper explores the application of active contours to the problem of extracting the breast region in mammograms by exploiting the tapering nature of the breast to find the breast-region from the background.

TLDR
This paper explores the application of snakes to the problem of automatically extracting the breast region in mammograms with the aim of finding a method to automatically segmentation of the breast-region from the background.
[Incidence and the results of treatment of beta-lactamase-positive gonorrhea with spectinomycin (trobicin)].
TLDR
Beta-lactamase-positive gonorrhoea was rather sporadic in Poland, but if confirmed in other parts of the country, will cause the necessity of revision of the presently accepted indications for gonor rhoea treatment with penicillin with probenecid as the basic method.

Removing radiopaque artifacts from mammograms using area morphology
TLDR
This paper proposes a new approach for removing radiopaque artifacts from the background region of mammograms based on the concept of area morphology, which uses attributes of structures rather than a fixed shape structuring element as used in classical morphology.
[Usefulness of the gonozyme (Abbott) test in the diagnosis of gonorrhea in prostitutes].
TLDR
Gonozyme was highly useful in the examinations of prostitutes in view of its importance and the fact that the gonococcal antigen can be detected also when the result of culture was negative due to antibiotic taking.

An algorithm for extracting the skin surface in MR breast images
TLDR
A simple algorithm is outlined to extract the skin surface from MR breast images through identification of the breast contour, making it possible to exclude the non-breast region from the search for abnormalities.
