【Abstract】 Background Lung cancer is the most malignant tumor with the highest morbidity and mortality in the world.Early CT screening can reduce the mortality of patients with lung cancer,but at present,there are problems such as the large number of screenings,the heavy workload of doctors and a high rate of missed diagnosis.Artificial intelligence(AI) is an emerging method to screen early lung cancer.It is of great clinical significance to study its diagnostic value for pulmonary nodules.Objective To explore the effect and clinical value of the application of AI in the diagnosis of pulmonary nodules.Methods From July 2017 to July 2019,120 patients with pulmonary nodules diagnosed in the Third Affiliated Hospital of Jinzhou Medical University were selected as the study objects,and 256 pulmonary nodules were screened out.The positive rates of ground glass nodules(GGN) diagnosed by AI reading and physician reading of chest CT were compared,and the consistency of two methods was evaluated by Kappa test.Taking pathological examination results as the "gold standard",the sensitivity,specificity,positive predictive value,negative predictive value and area under the receiver operating characteristic(ROC) curve of the diagnosis results by two methods in the malignant pulmonary nodules were calculated.Results The positive rate of GGN diagnosed by AI reading〔87.2%(95/109)〕 was higher than that by physician reading〔68.8%(75/109)〕(χ2=10.686,P=0.001).The coincidence of two diagnostic methods was weak,with a Kappa coefficient of 0.019.Of the 54 pulmonary nodules examined pathologically,47 were malignant and 7 were benign.The sensitivity of the diagnosis by AI reading and physician reading in malignant pulmonary nodules were 91.5% and 87.2%;the specificity were 57.1% and 85.7%;the positive predictive value were 93.5% and 97.6%;the negative predictive value were 50.0% and 50.0%,and the area under the ROC curve were 0.743 and 0.845.Conclusion The AI reading in the diagnosis of GGN has a higher positive rate,which can be used to reduce the rate of missed diagnosis of GGN in clinical practice.Meanwhile,the sensitivity of AI reading in the diagnosis of malignant pulmonary nodules is higher than that of physician reading,but its specificity is lower.It is suggested that AI reading combined with physician reading should be used in clinical practice.

【Abstract】 Background Epidemiologic studies have found that the morbidity of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction(HFpEF) is increasing significantly,approximately accounting for one-half of those with symptomatic heart failure,with a mortality similar to that of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.Yet,up to now,we lack proven therapies to improve the outcomes.Objective To evaluate the effects of isosorbide mononitrate on exercise tolerance and quality of life in patients with HFpEF.Methods From the First People's Hospital of Yunnan Province from September 1,2016 to April 30,2018,92 chronic heart failure inpatients(NYHA classⅡ-Ⅲ) meeting the diagnostic criteria of HFpEF were enrolled,and were equally and randomly stratified into the control group and the isosorbide mononitrate group,treated with basic treatment,previous pharmacological treatment plus isosorbide dinitrate sustained-release tablets(30 mg once daily),for 4 consecutive weeks,respectively.The primary end points were exercise capacity and quality of life,assessed by 6-minute walk test,symptom-limited cardiopulmonary exercise testing(peak VO2,anaerobic threshold,maximum workload and maximum exercise time),the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire(MLHFQ) score,and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide
(NT-proBNP).During the intervention,five cases in the isosorbide mononitrate group dropped out the trial within one week due to intolerant headache caused by taking the isosorbide mononitrate,so the remaining 87 cases were finally included.Results There were no significant differences in sex ratio,mean age,body mass index,heart rate,systolic blood pressure,diastolic blood pressure,distribution of NYHA class,early mitral filling velocity/early diastolic mitral annular velocity ratio,left atrial volume index,left ventricular mass index,left ventricular ejection fraction,the prevalence of three chronic diseases(diabetes,hypertension,coronary heart disease) and use of two types of drugs(diuretics,calcium antagonists) between the two groups(P>0.05).Furthermore,no significant differences were found in mean pre- and post-treatment peak VO2,VO2AT,maximum exercise power,maximum exercise time,6-minute walk distance,MLHFQ score and NT-proBNP level in either group,and between the two groups(P>0.05).Conclusion Oral administration of isosorbide mononitrate 30 mg once daily did not improve the exercise tolerance and quality of life in patients with HFpEF.
