Abstract: The application of technology in health care, in the form of electronic health records (EHR), is the most important and necessary issue in order to improve the quality of health care, and studies have shown that, not only is it a way to integrate information and represent the condition of patients, and a dynamic source for health care, however it leads to gain access to clinical information and records, electronic communications, comprehensive training and management, and ultimately enhancing the public health; the aim of this study is to investigate the factors influencing the implementation of EHR, which are known as barriers and facilitators. The research is conducted in the form of a review research, and with the help of the Keywords of EHR; barriers and facilitators, articles, from 2008 to 2013, were searched and studied in the Internet-databases. The results of the studies show that the most effective factors include: efficiency, motivation, management, and the participation of end users. Factors such as technical aspects ease of use, available resources, and human resources, have limited effects. And security and privacy, the expected output, lack of time, and workload have relative effects, and also the relation between the patient and clinical staff, has no effects in the process of implementing EHR.

Contour-Based Image Segmentation Using Selective Visual Attention  [PDF]
Engin Mendi, Mariofanna Milanova
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2010.38092
Abstract: In many medical image segmentation applications identifying and extracting the region of interest (ROI) accurately is an important step. The usual approach to extract ROI is to apply image segmentation methods. In this paper, we focus on extracting ROI by segmentation based on visual attended locations. Chan-Vese active contour model is used for image segmentation and attended locations are determined by SaliencyToolbox. The implementation of the toolbox is extension of the saliency map-based model of bottom-up attention, by a process of inferring the extent of a proto-object at the attended location from the maps that are used to compute the saliency map. When the set of regions of interest is selected, these regions need to be represented with the highest quality while the remaining parts of the processed image could be represented with a lower quality. The method has been successfully tested on medical images and ROIs are extracted.

Boletim de Ciências Geodésicas , 2013, DOI: 10.1590/S1982-21702013000100007
Abstract: the surveillance of engineering structures like dams is an interdisciplinary task and mainly focused on the assessment of stability and reliability of the objects to be monitored. to show the co-operation of the disciplines involved in a comprehensible manner, it is suitable to use system analysis approaches. structural deformations analysis by means of system analysis is explained in the following with an example of a dam. the determination of the dam deformations is demonstrated by an integration of computed and measured data by using kalman filtering.

Clinical Medicine Insights: Dermatology , 2012, DOI: 10.4137/CMD.S3630
Abstract: Nicolau Syndrome, first described in the 1920’s in patients treated with bismuth salts for syphilis, is a rare adverse reaction at the site of intramuscular drug injection. It is clinically characterized by severe pain immediately after injection, and rapid development of blanched skin or livedoid reticular patches. Occlusion of peripheral arterial vessels is suggested to play a major pathogenic role. Since there is no specific therapy for this condition, an appropriate conservative treatment should be applied.

Abstract: Objective: Presentation of chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis chronica that is an uncommon but important differential diagnosis for particular benign and malignant tumours. Case report: A 32-year-old woman presented with a painful, hyperkeratotic nodule on her left antihelix. The lesion was treated with cryotherapy and resolved completely. Conclusion: Chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis should be considered as an important differential diagnosis for skin tumours and cryotherapy may be a good alternative in selected cases with an excellent cosmetic outcome to the surgery although surgery is still the mainstay of the treatment of this condition.
