    Figure: Overall Survival Among Patients With Metastatic Cancer Assigned to Electronic Patient-Reported Symptom Monitoring During Routine Chemotherapy vs Usual Care

    Crosses indicate censored observations. Enrollment in the patient-reported symptom monitoring group was enriched for a preplanned subgroup with low baseline computer experience as part of a feasibility substudy with a 2:1 randomization ratio in that subgroup (N = 227) and a 1:1 ratio in the computer-experienced subgroup (N = 539), yielding 441 participants in the patient-reported symptom monitoring group, and 325 in the usual care group. With a minimum follow-up of 5.4 years, median follow-up was 6.9 years (interquartile range, 6.5-7.7) for the electronic patient-reported symptom monitoring group and 7 years (interquartile range, 6.6-8.1) for the usual care group.

    Figure: Changes in US Seniors’ Technology Use, 2011-2014

    The y-axis scale shown in blue indicates range from 0% to 20%. Tablet and social network sites questions were asked only in 2013 through 2014. Error bars indicate 95% CIs of the weighted percentages. P values for trends: cell phone (.17), computer (.11), internet and online for any other reason (<.001), email and texting (<.001), internet banking (<.001), tablet (<.001), social network sites (.006), internet shopping (.003), obtain health condition information (.002), fill prescriptions (<.001), contact a clinician (<.001), and handle insurance matters (.065). Cumulative attrition between 2011 and 2014 was due to death (n = 1430) and loss to follow-up (n = 1824).

    CAPI indicates computer-assisted personal interview.aConsent was not required for prescreening. bInformal tallies showed that refusal, being too ill and discharged before screening were equivalent reasons for not being screened.cPhysical functioning criteria included 26 with Karnofsky score < 60; 10 too sick to participate, and 6 cognitive functioning precluded involvement.dParticipants in the usual-treatment group received treatment as usual which was not tracked by the study.eA patient who died in the 12 month period but was counted as lost to follow-up at 6 months.fVirally suppression as treatment success includes participants with viral >200 copies/mL and treatment failure as death. This analysis includes those lost to follow-up for whom medical records of viral load were available.

    Figure 1: Flow Diagram of Participating Centers, Study Participants, and 3-Tiered Analyses

    Hematoma enlargement (analysis n = 853) was defined as a relative volume increase >33% on follow-up imaging. Overall, 160 patients received surgical hematoma evacuation; of these, we included 78 patients with follow-up imaging before surgery and excluded 82 patients without follow-up imaging before surgery. Analysis of functional long-term outcome included all the patients in the study (n = 1176). Long-term outcome was assessed at 1 year. Analysis of oral anticoagulation (OAC) resumption (n = 719) compared surviving patients who restarted OAC vs patients who did not restart OAC. CT indicates computer tomography; ICH, intracerebral hemorrhage; INR, international normalized ratio; IVH, intraventricular hemorrhage. (For details on center selection, see eFigure 1 in the Supplement.)

    Figure 4: Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Identification of Necrosis/Fibrosis in a Representative Patient With Stress Cardiomyopathy

    Myocardial fibrosis was quantified, B, by selecting a region of interest in nonenhancing healthy myocardium (blue contour) and setting automated computer detection to 3 SDs (left) and 5 SDs (right) above the mean of healthy myocardium to identify fibrosis. Computer-aided signal intensity analysis detected positive late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) more than 3 SDs above the mean (red overlay), but no significant LGE more than 5 SDs above the mean was present (red contour = subendocardial border; green contour = subepicardial border of the myocardium).

    Figure 3: Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Identification of Myocardial Edema in a Representative Patient With Stress Cardiomyopathy

    T2-weighted images (short-axis view) demonstrating normal signal intensity (SI) of the basal myocardium but global edema of the mid and apical myocardium. Computer-aided SI analysis (bottom row) of the T2-weighted images with color-coded display of relative SI normalized to skeletal muscle (blue indicates an SI ratio of myocardium to skeletal muscle of ≥1.9 or higher, indicating edema; green/yellow indicates a normal SI ratio of <1.9) confirm the presence of global mid and apical edema. Outlines of regions of interest are manually drawn around the myocardium (red contour = subendocardial border; green contour = subepicardial border) and within the skeletal muscle (contour not shown).
