AbstractRecent learning-based approaches show promising performance improvement for the scene text removal task but usually leave several remnants of text and provide visually unpleasant results. In this work, a novel end-to-end framework is proposed based on accurate text stroke detection. Specifically, the text removal problem is decoupled into text stroke detection and stroke removal; we design separate networks to solve these two subproblems, the latter being a generative network. These two networks are combined as a processing unit, which is cascaded to obtain our final model for text removal. Experimental results dem...

Conclusion The frequency of a symptom discussed on a social media platform may not include all symptom experience and their severity. Indeed, users, who are experiencing different symptoms, mentioned different topics on the forum. Subsequent studies should consider the influence of additional factors (eg, cancer stage) from discussions. Implications for Practice Social media have the potential to prioritize and answer the questions about clinical care that are frequently asked by cancer patients and their caregivers.
Background Few studies have examined the real-time and dynamic relationship between lifestyle behaviors and treatment-related symptoms. Objective The aim of this study was to examine the associations of daily physical activity and sedentary behavior with symptom burden, pain interference, and fatigue among patients who were undergoing active cancer treatment. Methods A total of 22 (mean age = 57 years; 73% women; 55% Black) cancer patients were recruited from a local hospital and reported a daily diary of physical activity, sedentary behavior, symptom burden, pain interference, and fatigue over 10 days. A...

Web-based health education provides access to information and better coordination of care. Demographic and geographical factors may impact use and effectiveness of these services. The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with use of web-based health education programs among diabetic patients at ambulatory clinics of a safety-net hospital. This was a retrospective chart review. Total sample size was 300. Patients who completed a web-based video were younger, Caucasian, living outside inner city core, users of patient portal, and more likely to complete annual diabetic eye examination. Web-based education...
