Authors: DiCaprio MR, Abousayed MM, Kambam MLR Abstract Melanoma is an aggressive form of skin cancer associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Although commonly seen in dermatologist clinics, orthopaedic surgeons must be aware of these lesions in various ways. The five common musculoskeletal manifestations of melanoma will be discussed as well as the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, staging, treatment, and prognosis of melanoma. With an index of suspicion and awareness of melanoma, a thorough history and detailed physical examination are critical in establishing a diagnosis. An adequately performe...

CONCLUSION: Ultrasound and MRI have similar diagnostic performance for detecting parametrial infiltration in women with cervical cancer. This might have relevance from the clinical point of view, since ultrasound is cheaper than MRI. PMID: 32096793 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: By using the combination of ultrasound modes, this approach achieves high performance compared with the single mode and other fusion strategies. Our methodology may be a beneficial tool for the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. PMID: 32096788 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Liu H, Li H, Li Y, Yin S, Boimel P, Janopaul-Naylor J, Zhong H, Xiao Y, Ben-Josef E, Fan Y Abstract Radiomic approaches have achieved promising performance in prediction of clinical outcomes of cancer patients. Particularly, feature dimensionality reduction plays an important role in radiomic studies. However, conventional feature dimensionality reduction techniques are not equipped to suppress data noise or utilize latent supervision information of patient data under study (e.g. difference in patients) for learning discriminative low dimensional representations. To achieve feature dimensionality reduction...
