BACKGROUND Both stereotactic imaging and ultrasound have been used to localize non-palpable breast lesions for core biopsy analysis. In particular, stereotactic core breast biopsy with a dedicated recumbent mammographic unit is an accurate and reliable technique, and this has been substantiated in a number of recent prospective studies comparing(More)
The aim of this study was to produce models for the prediction of high risk pregnancies, with particular emphasis on pre-term delivery. Neural network and logistic regression models have been developed utilising pregnancy and delivery data spanning a period of seven years. Five input factors were used as explanatory variables: age, number of previous still(More)
