  • Objective : We performed a clinical study to investigate pattern characteristics in persistent allergic rhinitis depending on Korean Medicine pattern questionnaire items as a pattern identification diagnostic tool. Method : 32 patients with persistent allergic rhinitis were asked to interview with doctor of Korean Medicine and perform the 4 pattern questionnaires(Cold-Heat Pattern, Phlegm Pattern, Yin Deficiency pattern, bloodstasis pattern). Then, we analyzed the response rate of each pattern questionnaires. Results : After diagnosis of Korean Medicine Doctor's pattern identification, 17 individual items have higher response rate, 7 of 17 items have a common tendency in allergic rhinitis. The other 8 of 10 items belong to Lung qi deficiency cold and Lung-spleen qi deficiency group, these have higher tendency of deficiency. In bloodstasis pattern questionnaires, we don't decide the tendency of patients with allergic rhinitis. Conclusion : The result may provide that we don't use Korean Medicine pattern questionnaires as a major tool in the pattern identification of allergic rhinitis. Continuous studies are needed to develop the standardized pattern identification diagnostic tool.

  • Under the influence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, there is a emphasis on capacity building based on computational thinking to foster talent for future. In Korea, SW education has been mandatory since 2018. Since 2017, research has been conducted on the definition of SW education capability and the development of diagnostic tools. At this time, the diagnostic tool for middle school has been revised and supplemented once in 2018 and is used so far. In response to the request from the field to expand the information diagnostic test for middle school to elementary school and high school, it began as one of the 2019 study on the effectiveness of SW leading schools. In this study, we develop a diagnostic tool for elementary and high school based on the diagnostic tool for middle school. Expert validity verification and preliminary inspections are carried out. Preliminary examinations will analyze the reliability, discrimination, and difficulty of the questions, and look forward to seeing the potential as a testing tool in the future.

  • A diagnostic tool for testing homogeneity for random effects is proposed in unbalanced linear mixed model based on score statistic. The finite sample behavior of the test statistic is examined using Monte Carlo experiments examine the chi-square approximation of the test statistic under the null hypothesis.

  • Recently, mental patients are increasing by secondary gain, that is, purpose for avoiding a military service as the social prejudice about mental disease decreases. In particular, it is unique diagnostic tool to a patient's subjective symptoms complaint and a doctor's special judgment, in occasion of psychiatry problem that an objective diagnostic tool does not exist. In this paper, we provide an objective basis to help in a quick decision-making of discharging from military service using the datamining, that analyzes mental patient's prescription to find a special rule. Therefore, we propose the decision support system of discharging from service using the analysis of mental patient's prescription.

  • This study aims to develop a diagnostic tool that can measure nine personality types of the enneagram types based on the theoretical content of enneagram to measure personality as a human factor among various factors that affect to performance for maximizing organization and individual's performance. We have develeped measure items to figure out 9 enneagram types. Since first of September of to 30th August 2011, we had a preliminary survey with total 842 students in zed the data. Based on the results of the analysis of preliminary invmiddle and high school and analyestigation, we made a Enneagram Personality Type Inventory for Young People with a total of 144 selected questions. 4,008 middle and high students across the country were surveyed and had statistical analysis with the data. The data shows Cronbach's ${\alpha}$ was from .77 to .86 for the 9 types. This diagnostic tool developed with this study will help students can understand, develop and grow themselves, also this can be useful in coaching and counseling areas like Personality, career, academic, career and leadership development.

  • A diagnostic tool has been proposed to convert the observed surface distribution of hydrogen recombination line intensities into the radial distributions of the electron temperature and the density in HII regions. The observed line intensity is given by an integral of the volume emission coefficient along the line of sight, which comprises the Abel type integral equation for the volume emission coefficient. As the emission coefficient at a position is determined by the temperature and density of electrons at the position, the local emission coefficient resulted from the solution of the Abel equation gives the radial distribution of the temperature and the density. A test has been done on the feasibility of our diagnostic approach to probing of HII regions. From model calculations of an HII region of pure hydrogen, we have theoretically generated the observed surface brightness of hydrogen recombination line intensities and analyzed them by our diagnostic tool. The resulting temperatures and densities are then compared with the model values. For this case of uniform density, errors in the derived density are not large at all the positions. For the electron temperature, however, the largest errors appear at the central part of the HII region. The errors in the derived temperature decrease with the radial distance, and become negligible in the outer part of the model HII region.

  • Myxopapillary ependymoma generally arise in the conus medullaris and filum terminale of adult spinal cord. These tumors are readily recognized due to unique histopathologic features, however, their cytologic features are not well described. When only a tiny sample is obtained, cytologic examination using crush preparation may be a useful diagnostic tool to help appropriate intraoperative diagnosis. We present the crush cytologic features of myxopapillary ependymoma arising in thoracic and lumbar spinal cord of a 13-year-old boy. The patient had complained of paraparesis and back pain for 1 month. The MRI image revealed a relatively well demarcated intramedullary mass in T11-L1 levels. Crush preparation for cytology were peformed by biopsy material. Crush cytologic findings revealed high cellularity and small sized branching papillary clusters on fibrillary or mucinous background. The tumor cells had uniform round or elongated nuclei. The cytoplasmic process of tumor cells were attached to the vascular wall. Between the tumor cells and vascular walls, the perivascular collar of globoid acellular stroma with metachromatic reaction on toluidin blue stain was noted. The crush preparation of myxopapillary ependymoma is considered as a simple and highly accurate diagnostic tool for differentiation from other intramedullary neoplasms of central nervous system.

  • Objective : To prospectively assess the diagnostic and clinical value of a new technique (3-tesla magnetic resonance myelography, 3T MRM) as compared to computed tomographic discography (disco-CT) in patients with far lateral disc herniation. Methods : We evaluated 3T MRM and disco-CT of 25 patients, whom we suspected of suffering from far lateral disc herniation. Using an assessment scale, 4 observers examined independently both 3T MRM and disco-CT images. We analyzed observer agreement and the accentuation of each image. Results : We found complete matching, and observer agreement, between high resolution images of 3T MRM and disco-CT for diagnosing far lateral disc herniation. Conclusion : We think noninvasive 3T MRM is an appropriate diagnostic tool for far lateral disc herniation as compared to disco-CT.
