The goal of this study was to compare the use of the Accu-Check System with the use of a previously developed online retinoscopy software tool during visual quality of vision (VQoV) evaluation in patients with bilateral cataracts.
The study comprised patients undergoing cataract surgery at the University of Florida. Patients were evaluated pre- and postoperatively with both systems and followed up for 4 months.
Fifty-three patients were evaluated. Five patients were excluded due to insufficient eyes pre-operatively. The average age of the cohort was 69.
Fifty-one patients completed pre- and postoperative examinations for pre- and postoperative VQoV. The average pre- and postoperative IOL power and axial lengths were 23. 2 diopters (D) and 46. 9 mm, respectively.
In this study, the CSC vs. CSC+ISV patients were found to have a statistically significant difference with regard to axial lengths ( P = 0. 027) and IOL power ( P = 0.
Transcribing Optical Data for Cataract Surgery.
The proposed system of optical data management for cataract surgery makes use of a new optical data structure that is a generalization of the Béchet tree for storage of data in an archive system. The authors describe the hardware architecture and the software architecture of the proposed system. The hardware component parts are presented in this way to indicate their functions. An overview is presented of storage and retrieval schemes, compression and decompression schemes, and encryption techniques, including the use of a symmetric key scheme that is based on public key cryptography. One of the features of the proposed system is that no need is made to store or retrieve data locally, so that the proposed system is very convenient in storage and retrieval schemes, with only a few bits of additional overhead, and the use of no extra devices. This makes the proposed system also convenient in terms of compression methods. In the proposed system, information is compressed using the Huffman tree method. In this method, a Huffman tree is constructed that holds a record of information. Next, the Huffman tree is traversed for the purpose of compression. The depth of the Huffman tree is the number of levels in the tree. The Huffman tree is then decompressed by a method that finds the records that lie in the compressed Huffman tree that could be skipped if the compressed tree is compressed to a tree that has less levels. The compressed Huffman tree is then recompressed and then decompressed according to the original tree for the purpose of retrieving data. The proposed solution offers additional advantages compared with the prior art: (1) the compression and decompression methods do not require extra devices, only a conventional optical storage device; (2) the compression method that does not require the use of a symmetric key requires only one bit, while the existing methods require three bits: (1) the compression method based on the Huffman tree, requires one bit because it uses the depth of the tree as the number of levels in the tree; (2) the decompression method based on the Huffman tree requires one bit, because the depth is used; (3) the decompression method based on the Huffman tree requires three bits because the depth of the tree is used.

As the treatment and clinical care of patients with HIV/AIDS continues to evolve, the provision of effective management and access to antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) to patients across the globe remains a challenging task. This article will outline our proposed approach to HIV/AIDS care and will discuss key issues that require attention in the development of a package of services for HIV/AIDS care in the US. The importance of education of health care providers is an important component in HIV/AIDS care, but it is important to note that the training provided to health care providers in the US is minimal. Moreover, the education provided for the care team, the patients as well as the community is often limited. Given these realities, providers could be more involved if the education of providers about the needs of the patient and the care team, as well as about the health care system in the US, are combined with the ongoing education of the patient or other key stakeholders in the community.
Policymakers and practitioners, including policy makers, physicians, and nurses have for many years been seeking a practical and effective approach to providing services to patients with HIV/AIDS. Much research and policy documents have been written about the issues facing patients with HIV/AIDS. However, few studies have attempted to investigate the effectiveness of treatment, such as treatment adherence, regimen complexity and patient-provider communication, among other factors within the HIV/AIDS care setting. This is in part due to the inherent difficulty in providing effective solutions. However, in the US, this is a growing need and health care providers, patients, and the community need to collaborate and increase awareness about the care delivery process. This article will offer some suggestions to the reader as to how to improve patient and provider knowledge of the care setting, as well as to improve communication and patient outcomes.
This issue of the ViroMed Journal will be the first to address these issues in a national context.

The effect of transcribed errors on the refractive accuracy of online planning.
This paper investigates the correlation between the refractive accuracy of the online planning system, the quality of the text that has been transcribed into the system, and the reliability of the system. It also attempts to explain the extent to which these two factors are additive or interactive. Both a static and a simulation study is carried out. From the simulation study it is shown that the quality of the transcribed text matters and that a better quality transcribed text can substantially improve the planning system. The influence of transcription error on the planning system as well as the effect of transcription error on the quality of the transcription are both negligible. However, there is a linear relationship between the number of transcription errors and the deviation between the actual and expected values of the planning system, and the transcription errors are mostly correlated with the deviation between the actual and actual distance.
The refractive accuracy of online planning is an important issue, as it can significantly impact the planning performance and therefore the safety of a vehicle. Online planning uses the real geometric parameters provided by the laser scanner and calculates the positions of the virtual structures, according to these parameters, on the basis of a preplan. The accuracy of the planning system has a direct impact on the quality of the final planning system. To investigate this, the performance of the online planning system is measured and compared for various types of text including English text, Chinese text, Korean text and Korean characters. The results show that the accuracy of the online planning system increases significantly when the quality of the transcribed text is better.
In this paper, a new method is proposed for online planning, in which the input of the online planner is modified such that the input data is transcribed into the online planner. The effect of this transcribed output on the refractive accuracy of the online planning system is investigated and the quality of the transcribed text is considered. The accuracy of the online planning system decreases rapidly when the quality of the transcribed output increases. The linear function between the refractive accuracy and the number of transcription errors is proved. The influence of transcription error is simulated, and the quality of the transcribed result is shown to be a function of the number of transcription errors.
A new approach to online planning is developed, in which the input is modified such that the input data is transcribed into the online planner.
Tips of the Day in Software
We spent the past few weeks talking a lot about the future of Hadoop. In the past we’ve talked about the future of Apache Hadoop, Hadoop 2, Apache HDInsight, and how its successors will be more or less like Hadoop 1 with some minor additions and enhancements.
We talked a lot about the future of Apache HBase, Apache Pig, and Hadoop MapReduce. We also talked at length about Apache Cassandra, HBase, and Hadoop/Hadoop 2.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been talking a lot about new big data systems, such as Spark, Apache Hadoop, and Apache Spark. We’re not going to talk about all of them today, because Spark is new and Hadoop and Spark’s successor still have a long way to go.
Today we are reviewing the latest version of Apache Spark, which is currently called Scala Spark. Let’s start with the documentation.
