In this study, inspiratory flow signals were used to detect flow limitation; the determination and normalization of inspiratory cycles are essential for autoPAP
Os dispositivos de pressao positiva autoajustavel na via aerea (autoCPAP, autoPAP
, APAP) foram desenvolvidos com duas finalidades:
Nowadays, there are several instruments which have been used to screen for abnormal cervical cells such as semi-automated or interactive system (PAPNET) and automated systems (AutoPap
300, FocalPoint, and ThinPrep Imaging System (TIS)) [30, 33, 39-41].
: a fully automated computerized quality control system that rescreens all Pap test slides for fewer false-negative results--when tests fail to detect existing abnormalities.
System for primary screening in cervical cytology: comparing the results of a prospective, intended-use study with routine manual practice.
300 QC Automatic Pap Screener System: a fully automated quality control system that re-screens all Pap smear slides for fewer false-negative results--when tests fail to detect existing abnormalities.
Detection of high grade squamous intraepithelial lesions and tumors using the AutoPap
system: results of a primary screening clinical trial.
Newer technologies including thin-layer cytology (Thin-Prep), computerized re-screening (Papnet), and algorithmic classification (AutoPap
) of slides can increase the sensitivity of cervical cancer screening by up to 30% at an increased cost of $5 to $10 per slide.
software uses an image recognition system and rates Pap smears according to normalcy.
In recent years, two computerized Pap smear screening technologies have been introduced-- AutoPap
and Papnet systems were approved by the FDA in the latter half of 1995.
