BACKGROUND In lung cancer screening the ability to distinguish malignant from benign nodules is a key issue. This study evaluates the ability of positron emission tomography (PET) and volume doubling time (VDT) to discriminate between benign and malignant nodules. METHODS From the Danish Lung Cancer Screening Trial, participants with indeterminate nodules(More)
Electronic structure calculations have become an indispensable tool in many areas of materials science and quantum chemistry. Even though the Kohn-Sham formulation of the density-functional theory (DFT) simplifies the many-body problem significantly, one is still confronted with several numerical challenges. In this article we present the projector(More)
The performance of polymer-electrolyte-membrane (PEM) fuel cells is limited by the reduction at the cathode of various oxy-genated intermediates in the four-electron pathway of the oxygen reduction reaction. A research team led by SLAC scientists performed x-ray spec-troscopy identification and DFT simulations of oxygenated inter-mediates on a platinum(More)
As a result of follow-up studies published in 1937 and 1939, Langfeldt divided schizophrenia into two groups; 'typical schizophrenia' which had a poor outcome, and the 'schizophreniform psychoses' which had a less typical clinical picture of schizophrenia and a good outcome. Langfeldt's cases of schizophreniform psychoses were reclassified according to the(More)
The ICD-10 and DSM-IV classifications have both given low priority to "reactivity" to acute stress as a classificatory principle for functional psychoses. In Scandinavia, reactivity is still considered an important factor in the development of such psychoses. Reactivity is a complex concept, and its various components are historically examined. The(More)
Reactive psychosis is a common diagnosis in the Nordic countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland) and in several other parts of the world. In ICD-9 and DSM-III-R, the concept is defined more narrowly than in the Nordic tradition. In this study we examined the interrater reliability of the Nordic concept by the case-summary method between(More)
Langfeldt's cases of schizophreniform psychoses were reclassified according to the ICD-9 and DSM-III-R diagnostic systems. The main purpose was to reexamine the validity of his concept of 'schizophreniform psychoses' to see whether it supported the existence of a 'third psychosis', and whether his material could be helpful in identifying good prognostic(More)
DSM-III-R divides schizophreniform disorder into 2 subtypes with and without good prognostic features. The 4 prognostic features have been selected based on the literature, and the presence of at least 2 should indicate a good prognosis. The predictive value of the good prognostic features was tested in a sample of 16 untreated patients with DSM-III-R(More)
