Doubts are expressed on the validity of patient satisfaction questionnaires. High satisfaction levels are consistently reported. Within the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) quality of life group, we developed a cancer inpatient satisfaction questionnaire (QLQ-SAT32), adopting several precautions to overcome the ceiling(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the responsiveness of the European Organization for Research and Treatment (EORTC) quality of life questionnaires (QLQ-C30, QLQ-CR38) and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-colorectal version 4 questionnaire (FACT-C). METHOD This prospective study included 127 patients with colorectal cancer: 71(More)
Patient satisfaction is now recognised as an important quality of care outcome which is particularly relevant in oncology. Adapted from the EORTC In-Patsat32, the Out-Patsat35 is a 35-item satisfaction with care questionnaire measuring cancer outpatients' perception of hospital doctors and nurses, as well as aspects of care organisation and services. This(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to test the psychometric properties of the French version of the European Organization for Research and Treatment (EORTC) quality-of-life colorectal questionnaire (QLQ-CR38) and the functional assessment of cancer therapy-colorectal version 4 (FACT-C). METHOD This prospective study included 209 patients with colorectal(More)

In this study, we compared a self- versus interview administration of the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) patient satisfaction questionnaire (QLQ-SAT32), noting response and(More)
In order to detect man-made objects in underwater video, we propose and validate a novel method based on background subtraction methods. The other main contribution is the introduction of a priori elements deduced from positioning sensors. These elements allow to enhance the visibility of underwater objects thanks to the calculation of the sun position in(More)
An optimized technique based on the fringe-adjusted JTC (joint transform correlator) architecture is proposed and validated for rotation invariant recognition and tracking of a target in an unknown input scene. To enhance the robustness of the proposed technique, we used a three-step optimization by: (1) utilizing the fringe-adjusted filter (H FAF) in the(More)
