Spin or Interpretation Bias in Evaluations of Biomarkers in Ovarian Cancer: A Systematic Review.

In the scientific literature, 'spin' refers to reporting practices that make the study findings appear more favourable than results justify. The practice of 'spin' or misrepresentation and overinterpretation, may lead to an imbalanced and unjustified optimism in the interpretation of study results about performance of putative biomarkers. We aimed to classify spin (i.e., misrepresentation and overinterpretation of study findings), in recent clinical studies evaluating the performance of biomarkers in ovaria...


Translating care evaluations into practice: a suggestion based on the healthcare professional's intrinsic motivation to improve.

Scientific medical associations have made important steps in setting up integrated research agendas to narrow the huge knowledge gap about the effectiveness of accepted treatments. The ensuing care evaluations provide new insight into the value of different treatments; however, the implementation of the results of these care evaluations in practice continues to lag behind. In 2016 the Netherlands health insurers and the Netherlands patients' federation, supported by the Netherlands federation of medical spe...

Comparing subjective and objective evaluations of player performance in Australian Rules football.

Player evaluation plays a fundamental role in the decision-making processes of professional sporting organisations. In the Australian Football League, both subjective and objective evaluations of player match performance are commonplace. This study aimed to identify the extent to which performance indicators can explain subjective ratings of player performance. A secondary aim was to compare subjective and objective ratings of player performance. Inside Football Player Ratings (IFPR) and Australian Football...


DBP Evaluations in DBPNet Sites: Is Race/Ethnicity a Significant Factor in Care?

To examine whether there are differences between non-Hispanic white (NHW) and nonwhite (NW) children in referral questions, evaluations, and diagnoses during developmental behavioral pediatrician (DBP) evaluations at academic medical centers and the potential role of socioeconomic factors in any disparities noted.

Efficient Bandwidth Estimation in Two-dimensional Filtered Backprojection Reconstruction.

A generalized cross-validation approach to estimate the reconstruction filter bandwidth in two-dimensional Filtered Backprojection is presented. The method writes the reconstruction equation in equivalent backprojected filtering form, derives results on eigendecomposition of symmetric two-dimensional circulant matrices and applies them to make bandwidth estimation a computationally efficient operation within the context of standard backprojected filtering reconstruction. Performance evaluations on a wide ra...

Hypnotic Suggestions Can Induce Rapid Change in Implicit Attitudes.

We sometimes evaluate our environment (e.g., persons, objects, situations) in an automatic fashion. These automatic or implicit evaluations are often considered to be based on qualitatively distinct mental processes compared with more controlled or explicit evaluations. Important evidence for this claim comes from studies showing that implicit evaluations do not change as the result of counterattitudinal information, in contrast to their explicit counterparts. We examined the impact of counterattitudinal in...

Assessing the efficacy and experience of in-person versus telephonic psychiatric evaluations for asylum seekers in the U.S.

Psychiatric evaluations of asylum seekers in the U.S. play an important role in asylum cases; however, there are significant barriers to assessing asylum seekers' psychological trauma. Telephonic psychiatric evaluations provide an opportunity to access important resources to bolster their case. In this retrospective study, we considered the efficacy of telephonic psychiatric evaluations and assessed their potential as a solution to meet the needs of asylum seekers. Ten affidavits produced from telephonic ev...

Perceptions of people with respiratory problems on physician performance evaluation-A qualitative study.

Despite increasing calls for patient and public involvement in health-care quality improvement, the question of how patient evaluations can contribute to physician learning and performance assessment has received scant attention.

Minimum mode saddle point searches using Gaussian process regression with inverse-distance covariance function.

The minimum mode following method can be used to find saddle points on an energy surface by following a direction guided by the lowest curvature mode. Such calculations are often started close to a minimum on the energy surface to find out which transitions can occur from an initial state of the system, but it is also common to start from the vicinity of a first order saddle point making use of an initial guess based on intuition or more approximate calculations. In systems where accurate evaluations of the...

Distinct Neural Response to Visual Perspective and Body Size in the Extrastriate Body Area.

Neuroimaging research has independently implicated the extrastriate body area (EBA) in distinguishing between different visual perspectives and morphologies of bodies within visual processing. However, the combined processing of these physical attributes towards neural EBA response remains unclear, and may be crucial in influencing higher-order, aesthetic evaluation of bodies. Indeed, EBA alterations amongst eating disorder patients have been associated with disturbances in body image, and disruption to EBA...

Applying an Implementation Framework to the Use of Evidence from Economic Evaluations in Making Healthcare Decisions.

There is a need for the application of theory in understanding the use of evidence from economic evaluations in healthcare decision making. The purpose of this study is to review the published literature on the use of evidence from economic evaluations for healthcare decision making and to map the findings to the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research (CFIR).

How Does Motivation Modulate the Operation of the Mentalizing Network in Person Evaluation?

The mentalizing network is theorized to play a central role in making sense of people (compared with nonsocial targets), but is its involvement affected when we make sense of people in a nondispassionate manner (e.g., favoritism toward others on the basis of group membership)? First, mixed findings and small samples have prevented strong conclusions about whether intergroup evaluation increases or decreases activation regions associated with the mentalizing network. Second, little is known about the psychol...

Toward Bridging the Simulated-to-Real Gap: Benchmarking Super-Resolution on Real Data.

Capturing ground truth data to benchmark super-resolution (SR) is challenging. Therefore, current quantitative studies are mainly evaluated on simulated data artificially sampled from ground truth images. We argue that such evaluations overestimate the actual performance of SR methods compared to their behavior on real images. Toward bridging this simulated-to-real gap, we introduce the Super-Resolution Erlangen (SupER) database, the first comprehensive laboratory SR database of all-real acquisitions with p...

Examining the Associations Between Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) Scores and Fieldwork Performance: Results from an Occupational Therapy Program.

The purpose of this study was to explore the associations between scores obtained on objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) and on fieldwork placements within an occupational therapy program. Scores from four OSCEs and four fieldwork evaluations were obtained for 95 occupational therapy students. Associations between OSCE scores and fieldwork scores were investigated using Spearman's rank order correlations and contingency table analyses. Results showed that three out of the four OSCEs were posi...

Benchmarking Metagenomics Tools for Taxonomic Classification.

Metagenomic sequencing is revolutionizing the detection and characterization of microbial species, and a wide variety of software tools are available to perform taxonomic classification of these data. The fast pace of development of these tools and the complexity of metagenomic data make it important that researchers are able to benchmark their performance. Here, we review current approaches for metagenomic analysis and evaluate the performance of 20 metagenomic classifiers using simulated and experimental ...

Health Information Technology Adoption and Clinical Performance in Federally Qualified Health Centers.

A national sample (N = 982) of federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) for the period 2011-2016 was examined regarding the relationship between the age and extent of health information technology (HIT) use and clinical performance. We found that each additional year of HIT use was associated with an approximate 4 percent increase in both process and outcome measures of clinical performance. Furthermore, FQHCs that fully adopted HIT had 7 percent higher clinical performance on hypertension control than th...

Data mining information from EHRs produced high yield and accuracy for current smoking status.

Researchers are increasingly using routine clinical data for care evaluations and feedback to patients and clinicians. The quality of these evaluations depends on the quality and completeness of the input data.

Variation in the Quality of Thyroid Nodule Evaluations Before Surgical Referral.

The aim of this review is to identify and describe the evidence base of published primary, comparative healthcare delivery model evaluations that require the employment of additional healthcare practitioners undertaken in Australia.

Simplifying models and estimating grasp performance for comparing dynamic hand orthosis concepts.

While designing a dynamic hand orthosis to assist during activities of daily living, the designer has to know whether a concept will have sufficient grasp performance to support these activities. This is often estimated by measuring the interaction force at the contact interface. However, this requires a prototyping step and limits the practicality of comparing several concepts in an early design stage. Alternatively, this study presents and compares basic static and dynamic models to numerically estimate g...

Direct and reflected self-concept show increasing similarity across adolescence: A functional neuroimaging study.

In adolescence, the perceived opinions of others are important in the construction of one's self-concept. Previous studies found involvement of medial Prefrontal Cortex (mPFC) and temporal-parietal junction (TPJ) in direct (own perspective) and reflected (perceived perspective of others) self-evaluations, but no studies to date examined differences in these processes across adolescence. In this study, 150 adolescents between 11 and 21 years old evaluated their traits from their own perspective and from the ...

Performance Assessment and Selection of Normalization Procedures for Single-Cell RNA-Seq.

Systematic measurement biases make normalization an essential step in single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) analysis. There may be multiple competing considerations behind the assessment of normalization performance, of which some may be study specific. We have developed "scone"- a flexible framework for assessing performance based on a comprehensive panel of data-driven metrics. Through graphical summaries and quantitative reports, scone summarizes trade-offs and ranks large numbers of normalization meth...

Evaluation of the DynaTrap Flylight (DT-3009) Against House Flies and Stable Flies (Diptera: Muscidae) Under Indoor Conditions.

Ultraviolet light traps are commonly used to manage house flies in indoor situations. Many indoor traps are longer than their 46-cm fluorescent tubes and have glue boards to capture attracted flies. Smaller traps have been sold to use in homes and small rooms, but few if any trap evaluations can be found in the literature. One trap, the DynaTrap Flylight DT-3009 (DTFL) has become quite common and a performance evaluation between it and an open-front commercial trap seemed warranted. Evaluations were conduct...

What Predicts Pre-adolescent Compliance with Family Rules? A Longitudinal Analysis of Parental Discipline, Procedural Justice, and Legitimacy Evaluations.

During adolescence, individuals make judgements on the legitimacy of authorities to make and enforce rules and they differentiate between various types of rules. This study tracked a socially and racially diverse sample (47% White) of 800 Brazilians for three years, ages 11-13 (50% female), allowing for variation between issues and individuals. The strongest predictors of compliance were adolescents' beliefs that parents were legitimate authorities. Other significant predictors were authorities' procedural ...
