In conclusion, the screening barrier most often identified by women was a lack of time (practical barrier) and the screening facilitator most often listed was the low cost of the test. In logistic regression analyses, the number of psychological barriers was related to women's screening status (i.e., overdue vs. up-to-date), whereas the numbers of practical and psychological screening barriers were related to prior screening (i.e., screened vs. never screened), along with the number of practical facilitators. Several individual screening barriers (e.g., embarrassment, lack of time) and screening facilitators (e.g., GP status, low cost of test) were found to be related to women's screening status and prior screening. Taken together, the results suggest that Concanamycin-A psychological and practical screening barriers and practical facilitators may represent the best targets for future intervention to optimize women's cervical cancer screening attendance.

Autocorrection of lung boundary on 3D CT lung cancer imagesq

Lung cancer in men has the highest mortality rate among all types of cancer. Juxta-pleural and juxta-vascular are the most common nodules located on the lung surface. A computer aided detection (CADe) system is effective for assisting radiologists in diagnosing lung nodules. However, the lung seg-mentation step requires sophisticated methods when juxta-pleural and juxta-vascular nodules are pre-sent. Fast computational time and low error in covering nodule areas are the aims of this study. The proposed method consists of five stages, namely ground truth (GT) extraction, data preparation, tracheal extraction, separation of lung fusion and lung border correction. The used data consist of 57 3D CT lung cancer images taken from selected LIDC-IDRI dataset. These nodules are determined as the outer areas labeled by four radiologists. The proposed method achieves the fastest computational time of 0.32 s per slice or 60 times faster than that of conventional adaptive border marching (ABM). Moreover, zone of intolerance pro-duces under segmentation of nodule value as low as 14.6%. It indicates that the proposed method has a potential to be embedded in the lung CADe system to cover pleural juxta and vascular nodule areas in lung segmentation.
