The Performance of Novel Wavelet for Lung Image Analysis

Donia Ben Hassen and Sihem Ben Zakour

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 03, 2019

Even the advancement in the medical image, chest radiography still the most common used and cheapest method in detecting lung diseases. The generated image allows physicians to screen the normal, benign and malignant tissues in the lung. In order to better classify and reduce noise in the image's information, the employ of preprocessing methods is unavoidable. A novel scheme for lesions classification in chest radiographs is presented in this paper by combining discrete wavelet analysis (WA), FCM algorithm and Support Vector Machine (SVM). The wavelet is engaged to reduce the redundant informa...

Preterm Vaginal Delivery of Breech Presentation

Hanne Christensen

Article Type: Short Note | First Published: June 22, 2019

Very early preterm delivery is defined as delivery in week 23-28 GA. The incidence of preterm delivery in Denmark is about 5.6%. The incidence of breech presentation at date of delivery is 3-4% and there is an increase of breech presentation in lower gestational age. The few cases of extreme premature delivery have not been subjects to randomized controlled studies. In recent years retrospective multicentre studies comparing vaginal delivery versus cesarean section in breech presentation have not revealed significant difference in the degree of child mortality or morbidity....
