In this paper the problem of a vision system implementation for autonomous flying agents is considered in the context of industrial inspection tasks performed by unmanned aerial vehicles. A syntactic algorithm of a two-dimensional object vectorization and recognition is proposed. An algorithm of two-dimensional map recognition has been introduced as well. The algorithms have been tested by using both artificial data and real data-The satellite image. They have turned out to be effective. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

In this paper the approach to on-line object recognition for autonomous flying agent is considered. The method is divided into two parts. First the algorithm for scene objects vectorization is introduced. As the second step of the overall method we present the rotation and scale invariant algorithm for vectorized object identification based on syntactic language. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Gynecologic Oncology | Year: 2012

Objective: Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of all gynecologic malignancies. It is characterized by the spread of intraperitoneal tumors, accumulation of ascites, and formation of tumor blood vessels. Cyclin I has been linked with angiogenesis-related proteins, like vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and VEGF receptor 2 (VEGFR-2), in human breast cancer. We examined whether an association exists between expression of cyclin I, VEGFR-2, clinicopathologic parameters and survival of patients with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). Methods: Cyclin I and VEGFR-2 expressions were analyzed by immunohistochemistry in 55 human primary EOC tissue specimens. Results: Cyclin I immunoreactivity was significantly correlated with VEGFR-2 (R = 0.4587, P = 0.0004), and immunolabeling of cyclin I and VEGFR-2 significantly correlated with cancer cells' proliferative activity evaluated using cyclin A labeling index as a marker (R = 0.3107, P = 0.0209 and R = 0.4183, P = 0.0015, respectively). VEGFR-2 immunostaining was significantly higher in advanced, poorly differentiated, and suboptimally resected EOCs compared to their counterparts (P < 0.05). Finally, higher VEGFR-2 expression was significantly associated with shorter disease-free survival (P = 0.0437). Conclusions: Our results indicate that elevated expression of cyclin I and VEGFR-2 is likely to provide a proliferative advantage to the EOC cells, and that cyclin I may be linked with angiogenesis in EOC. Higher expression of VEGFR-2 is associated with more advanced disease. Further investigation of cyclin I in ovarian cancer is needed to evaluate if cyclin I may become a novel target for an anticancer therapy. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

Knowledge Cartography (KC) allows for fast answering of Description Logic (DL) knowledge base queries, but requires expensive preprocessing to represent knowledge in internal representation, i.e., the algorithm for computation of map of concepts as binary signatures is exponential time (however, for taxonomies— as many practical cases have shown—it is at most quadratic time). Preprocessing is already part of DL reasoning process and some computations are pre-calculated before user issues query to knowledge base. Using another method—Tableaux, no knowledge preprocessing is performed, however, all reasoning is done after user issues query. That’s why KC is faster than Tableaux during query answering. The chapter focuses on preprocessing issue for KC. It mainly considers the research on efficient generation of binary signatures and signatures rebuilding by employing the methods for logic synthesis. It has been confirmed that logic synthesis Complement algorithm is efficient when applied to the construction of the map of concepts. The research has shown that strategy of construction should be adjusted depending on ontology size. For smaller ontologies—the non-recursive approach should be used, on the contrary—for larger ontologies—recursive approach with bi-partitioning of the ontology graph. The recursive procedure indicated good scaling for large taxonomies. Another observation was that Complement algorithm works faster for nonsorted CNFs. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.

Despite implementation of organised screening programme in 2006/2007, cervical cancer (CC) incidence and mortality in Poland are still higher than the average in the European Union. CC and preceding cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) caused by human papillomaviruses (HPVs) can be prevented by vaccines which are reimbursed in around 20 European countries but not in Poland. CC and CIN can be also detected with the use of HPV tests which are not included in the Polish screening programme. Reimbursement for HPV vaccines and HPV testing requires cost-effectiveness analyses which include country-specific data on the burden and costs of management of cervical neoplasia. Therefore, we investigated the burden of cervical neoplasia and direct costs associated with its detection and management in Poland in 2012 reimbursed by the National Health Fund (NHF) - the only public healthcare insurance institution. We also report administrative costs of the organised screening programme covered by the Ministry of Health.Data on the burden and reimbursed costs of organised and opportunistic screening as well as management of cervical neoplasia were drawn from the NHF databases. Numbers of women reported with CIN and CC were ascertained.In 2012, there were 765,266 and 1,288,358 reimbursed Pap smears collected within and outside the organised screening programme, respectively. Expenditures on medical and administrative procedures in organised screening reached PLN (Polish Zloty) 41,470,664 and 12,150,398 respectively. The number of women with particular diagnosis and reimbursement for the management of these lesions were as follows: glandular ectropion 208,033 and PLN 37,349,515; CIN1 10,521 and PLN 6,616,375; CIN2 5,812 and PLN 5,071,155; CIN3 6,487 and PLN 7,611,062; unspecified grade CIN 36,575 and PLN 12,352,034; and CC 33,482 and PLN 52,377,006, respectively. In women with ectropion and CIN the total number of local excision/ablative therapeutic procedures on the cervix reached 47,658 and the total number of hysterectomies was 1,321.In 2012, management of approximately 93 thousand women with HPV-related cervical lesions reimbursed in Poland amounted to PLN 84,027,632 which makes it a considerable public health problem. The number of women managed for glandular ectropion is considerable and related costs are high. Total reimbursement for detection, treatment and follow-up of all cervical lesions reaches at least PLN 137 million annually.

Well-organised quality-controlled screening can substantially reduce the burden of cervical cancer (CC). European guidelines (EuG) for quality assurance in CC screening provide guidance on all aspects of an organised screening programme. Organised CC screening in Poland was introduced in 2007. The purpose of our study was to analyse: (i) adherence of the programme to EuG; (ii) programme process and performance indicators; (iii) impact of the programme on the incidence of and mortality from CC.Available data on the policy, structure and functioning of the Polish programme were compared with the major points of the EuG. Data on the process, and available performance indicators were drawn from the screening database and other National Health Fund (NHF) systems. Joinpoint regression was used to assess changes in CC incidence and mortality trends.The Polish programme adheres partially to EuG in terms of policy and organisation. Only a limited set of performance indicators can be calculated due to screening database incompleteness or lack of linkage between existing databases. The screening database does not include opportunistic smears collected within NHF-reimbursed or private care. The organised programme coverage rate fluctuated from 21% to 27% between 2007-2013. In 2012 the coverage reached 35% after combining both organised and opportunistic smears reimbursed by the NHF. In 2012 the number of smears reimbursed by NHF was 60% higher in opportunistic than in organised screening with significant overlap. Data from the private sector are not recorded. Depending on years, 30-50% of women referred for colposcopy/biopsy because of abnormal Pap smears were managed within the programme. The age-standardised CC incidence and mortality dropped linearly between 1999 and 2011 without evidence of a period effect.The Polish organised cervical screening programme is only partially adherent to evidence-based EuG. Its implementation has not influenced the burden of CC in the country so far. Changes with special focus on increasing coverage, development of information systems and assessment of quality are required to increase programme adherence to EuG and to measure its effectiveness. Our findings may be useful to improve the Polish programme and those implemented or planned in other countries.
