How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
False negative (FN) results in cervical cancer (CC) screening pose serious risks to women. We present a comprehensive literature review on the risks and reasons of obtaining the FN results of primary CC screening tests and triage methods and discuss their clinical and public health impact and implications. Misinterpretation or true lack of abnormal...
Risk factors of cervical cancer (CC) development are well investigated, however, those influencing the risk of a potential false negative cytology preceding diagnosis of an invasive CC are not. We have aimed to explore these factors according to the data from Organised Cervical Cancer Screening Programme (OCCSP) in Poland. A total of 2.36 million o...
In our pilot study we have aimed to assess interlaboratory variability of cytological diagnoses in selected laboratories participating in the Polish Cervical Cancer Screening Programme (CCSP) to establish grounds for certification system for cytodiagnosticians and to monitor the quality of services. Set of 50 selected Pap smears, previously reasses...
We have aimed to study reasons for reporting false-negative cytology results preceding diagnosis of interval cervical cancers (CC) in Poland. Data on all Pap smears collected in the organised screening in 2010-2015 were retrieved from the electronic database and linked with Polish National Cancer Registry (PNCR) data. False-negative results were de...
Module localization is an important aspect of the operation of self-reconfigurable robots. The knowledge of spatial positions of modules, or at least of the overall shape which the modules form, is the usual prerequisite for reconfiguration planning. We present a general, decentralized algorithm for determining the positions of modules placed on a...
We study relatively compact sets in variable Lebesgue spaces. The full characterization of such sets is given in the case of variable Lebesgue space on metric measure spaces. The paper contains a detailed discussion of relatively compact sets in variable Lebesgue space on the Euclidean space. Moreover, some applications of the theorems are given.
