Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a slowly progressive disease characterized by airway obstruction. Patients suffering from COPD could report exacerbations, which are deteriorations in respiratory health that worsen the course of the disease. The prompt recognition of an exacerbation from daily variations and its early treatment reduces the(More)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a common preventable and treatable disease characterized by persistent airflow limitations. In COPD, exacerbations are worsening of symptoms beyond day-to-day variations that, if not promptly treated, could worsen the course of disease. This work presents a disease management system that remotely monitors the(More)
The effectiveness of sinus ventilation is due to a regular anatomy of inner nose structures such as the maxillary sinus ostium. With the aid of nose and sinus manometric measurements, it is possible to show that better functional results can be achieved using a conservative surgical technique. The present study compared 30 patients subdivided in two groups.(More)
According to the recent recommendations of the American College of Rheumatology, ANA Task Force, IIF technique should be considered the gold standard in antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) testing. To overcome the lack of standardization, biomedical industries have developed several computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) systems. Two hundred and sixty-one consecutive(More)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a preventable, treatable, and slowly progressive disease, whose course is aggravated by a periodic worsening of symptoms and lung function lasting for several days. The development of home telemonitoring systems has made possible to collect symptoms and physiological data in electronic records, boosting the(More)
Recently there has been an increase demand for Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) tools to support clinicians in the field of Indirect ImmunoFluorescence (IIF), as the novel digital imaging reading approach can help to overcome the reader subjectivity. Nevertheless, a large multicenter evaluation of the inter-observer reading variability in this field is still(More)
