The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of computer-aided detection (CAD) prompts on reader behaviour in a large sample of breast screening mammograms by analysing the relationship of the presence and size of prompts to the recall decision. Local research ethics committee approval was obtained; informed consent was not required.(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively determine if the use of a computer-aided detection (CAD) system can improve the performance of single reading of screening mammograms to match that of double reading in the United Kingdom. MATERIALS AND METHODS Local research ethics committee approval was obtained; informed consent was not required. This study included a sample(More)
Mammographic density is known to be a strong risk factor for breast cancer. A particularly strong association with risk has been observed when density is measured using interactive threshold software. This, however, is a labour-intensive process for large-scale studies. Our aim was to determine the performance of visually assessed percent breast density as(More)
The DYSCERNE Network of Centres of Expertise for dysmorphology (, is developing clinical management guidelines for Williams (WS), Angelman (AS), Noonan (NS) and Kabuki (KS) syndromes. An initial scoping exercise identified these conditions as rare, complex, multi-system disorders, for which it was felt that affected patients,(More)
Characterization of the motion of the hand and wrist requires reference to the underlying bones which, for three-dimensional analyses, are assumed to be rigid bodies. Stereoradiogrammetric techniques involving the identification of prominent bone landmarks have been used as the standard against which surface markers used for in vivo testing have been(More)
The administration of p-chlorophenylalanine to mice prevents the rise in brain 5-hydroxytryptamine concentration associated with ethanol withdrawal but does not affect the increase in brain catecholamines which occurs at the same time. The locomotor excitement, piloerection, tremor and handling convulsions which occur during ethanol withdrawal were not(More)
In 2007, the DYSCERNE pilot project funded by the European Commission Public Health Executive Agency (EU DG Sanco) aimed at setting up a network of expertise for patients with rare dysmorphic disorders. As part of DYSCERNE, a Dysmorphology Diagnostic System (DDS) was set up to enable clinicians throughout the EU to submit cases electronically for diagnosis(More)
The morphology of micelles formed by two novel metallosurfactants has been studied by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and small-angle-X-ray scattering (SAXS). The two surfactants both contain a dodecyl chain as the hydrophobic moiety, but differ in the structure of the head group. The surfactants are Cu(II) complexes of monopendant alcohol derivatives(More)
