The aim of the scheme was to determine consistency of histopathological reporting in the United Kingdom National Breast Screening Programme. This external quality assessment scheme involved 51 sets of 12 slides which were circulated to 186-251 pathologists at intervals of 6 months for 3 years. Participants recorded their diagnoses on standard reporting(More)
To assess the variability among histopathologists in diagnosing and grading cervical intraepithelial neoplasia eight experienced histopathologists based at different hospitals examined the same set of 100 consecutive colposcopic cervical biopsy specimens and assigned them into one of six diagnostic categories. These were normal squamous epithelium,(More)
This study investigates whether the proximal origins of the lumbrical muscles contribute significantly to the etiology of carpal tunnel syndrome. We explored the carpal canals of 128 hands in patients undergoing carpal tunnel release for carpal tunnel syndrome. The origins of the lumbrical muscles were examined at the time of surgery and their relation to(More)

The term polyposis coli is usually taken to mean familial adenomatosis coli, a premalignant condition occurring in adolescents and adults. Although there have been many reports of colonic(More)
Eight histopathologists, based at different hospitals, who had previously examined 100 consecutive colposcopic cervical biopsies were circulated with the results of the initial study. The slides were then 'reblinded' and re-examined by the pathologists who, as before, assigned them into one of six diagnostic categories. The degree of interpathologist(More)
Casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) nanocomplexes have been shown to prevent demineralization and promote remineralization of enamel subsurface lesions in animal and in situ caries models. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of incorporating CPP-ACP into a self-cured glass-ionomer cement (GIC). Incorporation of 1.56%(More)
The National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) works to bridge the gap between research and practice and tested a Web-delivered psychosocial intervention (the Therapeutic Education System, TES) in 10 community treatment centers. Computer-assisted therapies, such as Web-delivered interventions, may improve the consistency and efficiency of(More)
