Abstract
This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license.
This book presents the VISCERAL project benchmarks for analysis and retrieval of 3D medical images (CT and MRI) on a large scale, which used an innovative cloud-based evaluation approach where the image data were stored centrally on a cloud infrastructure and participants placed their programs in virtual machines on the cloud. The book presents the points of view of both the organizers of the VISCERAL benchmarks and the participants. The book is divided into five parts. Part I presents the cloud-based benchmarking and Evaluation-as-a-Service paradigm that the VISCERAL benchmarks used. Part II focuses on the datasets of medical images annotated with ground truth created in VISCERAL that continue to be available for research. It also covers the practical aspects of obtaining permission to use medical data and manually annotating 3D medical images efficiently and effectively. The VISCERAL benchmarks are described in Part III, including a presentation and analysis of metrics used in evaluation of medical image analysis and search. Lastly, Parts IV and V present reports by some of the participants in the VISCERAL benchmarks, with Part IV devoted to the anatomy benchmarks and Part V to the retrieval benchmark. This book has two main audiences: the datasets as well as the segmentation and retrieval results are of most interest to medical imaging researchers, while eScience and computational science experts benefit from the insights into using the Evaluation-as-a-Service paradigm for evaluation and benchmarking on huge amounts of data.

This pamphlet explains the steps to hand express breast milk (take milk from your breasts). It is also called "manual expressing". Hand expression takes practice. It is important to learn how to hand express breast milk in the first hours after your baby is born. Hand expressing helps milk production and milk let-down (release) when you first start to breast feed your baby. A video is listed to help you with the basics. Instructions for how to store your breast milk are also given.

Intrapartum ultrasonography for labor management

During intrapartum obstetric care clinicians evaluate the fetal head position manually, either by abdominal or digital vaginal palpation. However, digital examination has been shown to be highly operator-dependent (subjective). Intrapartum ultrasound, on the other hand, seems to be reproducible and easy to learn. In crucial situations like obstructed labor, likely to require medical intervention, there really is a need for ultrasound assessment of birth progress and on the busy labor ward. Thi…

Abstract
During intrapartum obstetric care clinicians evaluate the fetal head position manually, either by abdominal or digital vaginal palpation. However, digital examination has been shown to be highly operator-dependent (subjective). Intrapartum ultrasound, on the other hand, seems to be reproducible and easy to learn. In crucial situations like obstructed labor, likely to require medical intervention, there really is a need for ultrasound assessment of birth progress and on the busy labor ward. This is the first book devoted entirely to intrapartum ultrasound for the management of labor. Experts in the field present their own experiences and summarize the published state of the art. The use of intrapartum ultrasonography in evaluation of the first and second stages of labor and diagnosis of the occiput posterior and transverse positions is clearly documented. Each situation is analyzed with the help of informative images, and invaluable tips and tricks are provided, showing how fetal head engagement and progression can be documented objectively. The importance of ultrasound in obstetrics risk management is also addressed. This book explains how intrapartum ultrasonography can be used to assess whether a safe natural delivery is likely or whether operative procedures are required. We hope it will be valuable for all professionals, physicians and midwifes alike, who care for labouring women.
