PURPOSE A wiki is a collaborative Web site, such as Wikipedia, that can be freely edited. Because of a wiki's lack of formal editorial control, we hypothesized that the content would be less complete and accurate than that of a professional peer-reviewed Web site. In this study, the coverage, accuracy, and readability of cancer information on Wikipedia were(More)
Cross-sectional imaging of acute abdominal conditions encompasses a broad differential diagnosis, including traumatic, inflammatory, and infectious etiologies. In addition, an underappreciated contributor to the acute abdomen is oncologic disease and its treatment. Oncologic patients are at increased risk in the development of numerous acute abdominal(More)
Lymphatic filariasis is the most common cause of acquired lymphedema worldwide (Szuba and Rockson, 1998). It is endemic to tropical and subtropical regions, and its effects are devastating. With over 100 million infected persons, it ranks second only to leprosy as the leading cause of permanent and long-term disability. Wuchereria bancrofti is the etiologic(More)
Cyamella, an accessory sesamoid ossicle of the popliteus in the region of the proximal myotendinous junction, is an extremely unusual finding, with a paucity of current published literature describing its MR appearance. In this case study, we describe MRI findings in a 44-year-old female presenting with pain after a stretching workout. Bone edema in the(More)
A wireless sensor network is a group of sensors heavily distributed in the desired area. There are constraints of energy, distance, mobility etc while dealing in WSN. As we know that randomized algorithms are the best average case providing algorithms so there come the concept of LEACH which is a very well known algorithm in WSN. Wireless sensor networks(More)
Recent studies have advocated the utility of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (18)F-FDG-PET imaging in evaluation of various hematological disorders. We report a case of a 61-year-old man with clinical suspicion of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) where (18)F-FDG-PET/CT (computerized tomography) was helpful in(More)
Data mining has become a powerful tool for extraction of knowledge from voluminous databases. It helps in analyzing the data in such a way that the analysis proves to be very useful for a specific application or organization. From past few years Data Mining has also stepped into healthcare sector where it is been used as an application for medical(More)
Facial expression recognition is an interesting and challenging problem, and found in many applications like human-computer interaction (HCI), robotics, video surveillance, border security, clinical research, person verification, crime prevention etc.. Facial expression is the movement of the muscles beneath the skin of the face. Through facial expressions(More)
In medical, data mining method can be utilized by the physicians to improve clinical diagnosis. In this paper a stratified approach named Correlation Feature Selection Stratified Sampling (CFS-SS) has been introduced. This method is applied to medical diagnosis heart disease risk prediction system. By using this proposed system the attributes are grouped(More)
Purpose. The validity of preoperative MRI in diagnosing HAGL lesions is debated. Various investigations have produced mixed results with regard to the utility of MRI. The purpose of this investigation is to apply a novel method of diagnosing HAGL/pHAGL lesions by looking at contrast extravasation and to evaluate the reliability of such extravasation of(More)
