Abstract:Many clinics are interested to use software packages in daily practice, but lack of integration of such packages seriously limits their scope. In practice this often entails switching between programs and interrupting the run of an individual program. A multi-task approach would not solve this problem as it would not eliminate the need to input the same data many times, as often occurs when using separate packages. The construction of a Multi-Service Medical Software package (MSx2) is described, which was also developed as an example of practical integration of some clinically relevant functions. The package runs on a personal computer in an MS-DOS environment and integrates a time-oriented medical record management unit (TOMRU) for data of ambulatory patients, and a drug information management unit (DIMU) concerning posology, content, effects, and possible interactions. Of the possible database configurations allowed by MSx2, the cardiology patient database (MSx2/C) and hypertensive patient database (MSx2/H) were developed and described here. Clinical information to be included in the configurations was obtained after discussion and consensus of clinical practitioners. MSx2/C was distributed to several hundred clinical centers during computerized courses to train future users. MSx2 can easily transfer patient data to statistical processing packages.

AbstractAgile software development embraces change and manifests working software over comprehensive documentation and responding to change over following a plan. The ability to continuously release software has enabled a development approach where experimental features are put to use, and, if they stand the test of real use, they remain in production. Examples of such features include machine learning (ML) models, which are usually pre-trained, but can still evolve in production. However, many domains require more plan-driven approach to avoid hazard to environment and humans, and to mitigate risks in the process. In this paper, we start by presenting continuous software engineering practices in a regulated context, and then apply the results to the emerging practice of MLOps, or continuous delivery of ML features. Furthermore, as a practical contribution, we present a case study regarding Oravizio, first CE-certified medical software for assessing the risks of joint replacement surgeries. Towards the end of the paper, we also reflect the Oravizio experiences to MLOps in regulatory context.

Abstract Objective: To explore the clinical efficacy of using 3D printing individualized treatment plan in the auxiliary repair and reconstruction of irregular bone tumor bone defect.Methods:Seven patients with aneurysmal bone cyst of scapula were selected. Based on the CT data of the patient, the scapula (including defect) and pelvis were reconstructed by computer Mimics Medical software. Print out the reconstructed scapula model with a 3D printer. Before operation, the model was used to design the surgical approach and simulate the operation process, to determine the length and Radian of the plate and the number and direction of screws, and to determine the bone mass of the ilium and make reasonable segmentation and distribution. The operation time, the amount of bleeding, the length and Radian of the plate, and the direction and number of screws were recorded.Results : The average follow-up time was 25.6 months, and none of the 7 patients had recurrence during the follow-up period; The surgical approach, the length and Radian of the internal fixation, the number and direction of screws were consistent with the designed operation plan. The anatomical structure of scapula and the function of shoulder joint gradually recovered.Conclusions: Compared with traditional methods, the use of 3D printing technology in the treatment of irregular bone tumor bone defect has less trauma, shorter operation time and less bleeding, which can reduce the waste of bone graft and reconstruct the anatomical structure of bone defect more completely.
