A simple collaborative tool, a shared text editor called ShrEdit, changed the way groups of designers performed their work, and changed it for the better. First, the designs produced by the 19 groups of three designers were of higher quality than those of the 19 groups who worked with conventional whiteboard, paper and pencil. The groups with the new tool(More)
The development of schemes to support group work, whether behavioral methods or new technologies like groupware, should be based on detailed knowledge about how groups work, what they do well, and what they have trouble with. Such data can be used to suggest what kinds of tools people might need as well as to provide a baseline for evaluating the effects of(More)
PURPOSE The Gleason grading system in reporting prostate cancer accounts for the primary and secondary Gleason pattern. The clinical significance of a higher tertiary (third most prevalent) grade is largely unrecognized. MATERIALS AND METHODS Radical prostatectomy specimens from 300 patients with Gleason score 7 (3 + 4 or 4 + 3) prostate cancer were(More)
This study reports how the introduction of a simple collaborative tool changed the way groups of people did an interesting problem solving task, the design of an automatic post office. The designs produced by the groups supported with this tool were of higher quality than those who worked with conventional whiteboard and paper and pencil. They liked the(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To determine the outcome of patients with pulmonary typical and atypical carcinoid tumors treated with chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy. METHODS Patients with pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors treated at our institution from 1990 to 2001 were identified. The medical records of patients with diagnoses of typical or atypical(More)
Spindle cell (sarcomatoid) carcinoma of the breast is a rare variant of breast cancer that has been classified under the broad rubric of metaplastic carcinoma. Because the term "metaplastic carcinoma" comprises a heterogeneous group of tumors, it has been difficult to reliably predict biologic potential or to determine optimal therapy. To better(More)
We present a case of serial cholangioscopic laser fulguration of a biliary recurrence of pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous tumor in a 76-year-old man. Through established percutaneous biliary drain tracts, the aseptic use of a standard 6.9 F ureteroscope and holmium laser fiber facilitated visual ablation within the biliary tree. Quarterly(More)
The purpose of this interactive poster is to encourage the exchange of information about techniques for gathering and analyzing data relevant to the evaluation of software used by a group. As more software is created for the use of group meetings, we must be able to evaluate that software, its interface and its effects within the meeting. Experimental(More)
