Item Response Theory Analysis of the MDS-UPDRS Motor Examination: Tremor vs. Nontremor Items.
(Movement disorders : official journal of the Movement Disorder Society, 2020-05-29)
BACKGROUND:In PD, tremor severity behaves differently from other core motor features. However, the most commonly used assessment of overall motor severity, total MDS-UPDRS Motor Examination (Part 3) score, does not account ...
Functional survival forests for multivariate longitudinal outcomes: Dynamic prediction of Alzheimer's disease progression.
(Statistical methods in medical research, 2020-07-29)
The random survival forest (RSF) is a non-parametric alternative to the Cox proportional hazards model in modeling time-to-event data. In this article, we developed a modeling framework to incorporate multivariate longitudinal ...
Automated Structured Reporting for Thyroid Ultrasound: Effect on Reporting Errors and Efficiency.
(Journal of the American College of Radiology : JACR, 2020-08-17)
PURPOSE:To compare the effectiveness of different reporting templates using the ACR Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TI-RADS) for thyroid ultrasound. METHODS:In this retrospective study, four radiologists implemented ...
Cross-sectional CT Assessment of the Extent of Injectate Spread at CT Fluoroscopy-guided Cervical Epidural Interlaminar Steroid Injections.
Background Previous studies analyzed contrast agent spread during cervical interlaminar epidural steroid injections (CILESIs) by using planar fluoroscopy and reported wide variance of the rate of spread to the ventral epidural ...
Validation of the Finnish Version of the Unified Dyskinesia Rating Scale.
(European neurology, 2021-07-14)
<h4>Introduction</h4>The Unified Dyskinesia Rating Scale (UDysRS) was developed to provide a comprehensive rating tool of dyskinesia in Parkinson's disease (PD). Because dyskinesia therapy trials involve multicenter studies, ...

Intranasal Oxytocin in Children and Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
(The New England journal of medicine, 2021-10)
<h4>Background</h4>Experimental studies and small clinical trials have suggested that treatment with intranasal oxytocin may reduce social impairment in persons with autism spectrum disorder. Oxytocin has been administered ...
Predicting outcomes after intradetrusor onabotulinumtoxina for non-neurogenic urgency incontinence in women.
(Neurourology and urodynamics, 2021-12-02)
<h4>Aims</h4>Develop models to predict outcomes after intradetrusor injection of 100 or 200 units of onabotulinumtoxinA in women with non-neurogenic urgency urinary incontinence (UUI).<h4>Methods</h4>Models were developed ...
