  • Often, there is a need to use the knowledge from multiple ontologies. This is particularly the case within the context of medical imaging, where a single ontology is not enough to provide the complementary knowledge about anatomy, radiology and diseases that is required by the related applications. Consequently, semantic integration of these different but related types of medical knowledge that is present in disparate domain ontologies becomes necessary. Medical ontology alignment addresses this need by identifying the semantically equivalent concepts across multiple medical ontologies. ...

  • Thyroid and parathyroid diseases are among the most frequent conditions we have to deal with in a clinical setting. Both nodular and autoimmune diseases affecting these glands have increased remarkably over the past decades. The widespread use of crosssectional imaging and the introduction of neck ultrasonography have led to a thyroid nodule epidemics and the diagnostic of neck lesions in half of the population. Consequently, many patients with microscopic papillary thyroid cancers of uncertain clinical significance are submitted to surgeries that may, perhaps, be unnecessary....

  • There is ample evidence concerning the burden of anxiety disorders. We clinicians know the personal distress of those suffering with panic attacks, severe phobias or obsessive–compulsive disorder, not to mention people living with stigmas of traumatic experiences. In addition to psychic pain, pathological anxiety severely affects the patient’s existence, causing a state of dependence which most often starts in early adulthood and has long-standing consequences, disrupting both family life and professional career.

  • The medical consequences of operating outside of the normal boundaries of a well tuned musculo-tendinous system are also poorly understood, although clearly recognized in the persistent atrophy experienced in microgravity despite rigorous exercise programs. Muscle force generation is length and velocity sensitive. The process is repetitive in the sense that muscles will always generate force based on their length-tension and forcevelocity properties, causing tendon deformation.

  • Consider an HIV-positive pregnant woman who lives in drought-stricken rural Africa. She has walked several miles with a child on her back to reach the nearest health facility. Here, her child will receive some basic primary care and be vaccinated against measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases. This facility is small and provides only limited services; consequently, the woman will be unable to receive basic obstetric care here when she is ready to deliver her next child. For basic obstetric care, she must travel to a different clinic in another village.

  • The diagnosis and successful management of congenital heart disease represents one of the greatest triumphs of cardiovascular medicine and surgery in the 20th century. As a consequence, the number of adults with congenital heart disease – both with repaired and unrepaired lesions – has grown rapidly, and is now approaching one million in North America. Similar increases have occurred in Western Europe. The care of adults with congenital heart disease represents a major challenge.

  • Although GERD was initially described in the early 19th century, it is essentially a consequence of our modern day largesse. Dietary factors and associated obesity have combined with as yet other unknown factors (e.g. a decrease in the prevalence of H. pylori?) to make GERD one of the most common diseases affecting western society. It is estimated that up to 20 million adults in the United States suffer from GERD, and treatment of these individuals consumes approximately $10 billion annually, the majority of it for prescription drugs used to manage the disease and its symptoms.

  • International travel is undertaken by large, and ever increasing, numbers of people for professional, social, recreational and humanitarian purposes. More people travel greater distances and at greater speed than ever before, and this upward trend looks set to continue.

  • Some of those shareholders kept a close watch on the Fund’s holdings and noticed a large position in broker Lehman Brothers. These investors—sensing that the brokerage firm might be in trouble— decided to take their money out of the fund.

  • Dobrinsky et al. (2001) conjecture that some specific types of soft budget constraints in a transitional environment may emerge as a result of distortions in incentive structures. In particular, distorted incentives may have an effect both on the determinants of credit supply and credit demand. 2 In turn, incentive structures are a reflection of the institutional environment and the conduct of economic policy in the broader sense. Consequently, policy reforms and policy shocks can be expected to affect the determinants of credit flows both on the supply and the demand side.
