Google Science Fair 2014 - The Non-invasive Search for Optimal Triple Negative Breast Cancer Treatment

Google Science Fair is a global online competition open to students from 13 to 18 years old.

 

Led by two students (Daniela Lee and Sadhika Malladi), this project seeks to create a non-invasive model that will not require biopsy to determine if a patient will respond to chemotherapy by using image features that analyze and provide information on kinetic maps derived from the non-invasive DCE-MRI.

 

Prof. Dr. Adrien Depeursinge (HES-SO Valais-Wallis) supervises this work.

Four Ways to Help Patients Find Reliable Online Health Information

Four Ways to Help Patients Find Reliable Online Health Information | eHealth in Switzerland | Scoop.it

 

Most physicians agree that we have an ethical obligation to help educate our patients about what’s going on with their health, but what does that look like in a world overwhelmed with digital health information? And how do we budget appropriate time when we’re already struggling to balance shorter appointment times, more documentation requirements, and busier clinic schedules?

It’s estimated that 72 percent of patients get a majority of their health information online. With an abundance of biased and incorrect information on the Internet, our responsibility as physicians has evolved from simply teaching patients about their health conditions to now include educatingpatients on where and how to find and identify reliable health information.

This premise goes back to why I use social media. We have a responsibility to share, or at the very least be cognizant of, reliable health information in the realm where our patients seek it. In the old days that looked like an exam room; today it looks like a Google search.

Here are four ways to efficiently help ensure patients have the resources they need to find reliable health information, despite cramped clinic visits and time constraints.

Ask: How can you possibly know where patients find their information if you don’t ask? I have patients come in with birth plans all the time and quite frequently they’ve printed them out from a website with little-to-no additional research into the (often very specific) things they’ve requested. You can’t possibly know or understand their views unless you ask.

Take Two: I understand how limited our time is – I’m a resident with a busy clinic and short, often over-booked appointment slots. But taking two minutes to discuss reliable health information with your patients has great potential for improving patient care and decreasing un-needed visits and calls.

Prep: Have pre-written, condition-specific information for your patients and include curated links to additional reliable information for those who may want it. It’s as simple as a “dot-phrase” on most major EMR systems or a copy/paste file you can quickly email or print.

Encourage: Encourage your patients to take control of their health by being informed.Encourage them to ask questions and explain things back to you, so you’re certain they have a grasp on it. Encourage them to share what they’ve learned in their searches.

Online marketing in the healthcare sector is all about helping patients find the information they need. Encourage them to ask the right questions, help them find the answers.

Zheng Pupeng Megan's curator insight, July 22, 12:04 AM

"Crap detection" is what we have learnt from being bombarded with a massive amount of information online. In a world where "Big Data" is our online reality now, it is difficult to differentiate what is useful data and what isn't.

 

Similar to the traditional steps learnt about "crap detection" - e.g. checking for credibility, this article effectively sums up "crap detection" of online health information in just 4 steps: ask, take two, prep, and encourage.

 

To know more about these 4 steps and what they are specifically, you'll have to read it to find out!

The FDA reportedly told Apple in December that a wearable with a glucometer would be classified as a medical device and face regulation if it was marketed to diabetics as the ultimate tool for tracking glucose. However, if that same wearable were only intended to be used to measure glucose for nutrition, it would not be regulated.

Multi Atlas-Based Segmentation with Data Driven Refinement

The VISCERAL project organizes a benchmark to compare approaches for organ segmentation in big data. A fully–automatic segmentation method using the VISCERAL data set is proposed in this paper. It incorporates both the local contrast of the image using an intensity feature as well as atlas probabilistic information to compute the definite labelling of the structure of interest. The usefulness of the new intensity feature is evaluated using contrast–enhanced CT images of the trunk.
