  • Patent number: 6185749
    Abstract: A hat and scarf that is made from coordinating material. A band extends around the circumference of the bottom of the hat and secures it to one's head. A loop is secured to the top of the hat. Each end of the loop is stitched to the hat top, thereby creating a small opening between the hat and the loop. At the rear of the hat, a band is secured at both ends by means of a fastener. The fastener is preferably a button or snap, thereby allowing the band to be easily attached or detached from the hat. A strand of coordinating material extends along the rear of the hat. It is fitted through the loop at the hat top and is secured under the band, consequently leaving two ends of the strand dangling from the bottom of the hat. The scarf is made from a flexible material that drapes loosely over one's neck. It is made from the same material as the hat, thereby creating a matching set.

  • Patent number: 6181768
    Abstract: A radiological imaging system, for providing a viewer with multiple stereoscopic radiological views of a patient from a single pair of acquired images, comprising acquiring a first image and second image to achieve a properly matched stereoscopic pair. The stereoscopic pair is presented to the viewer by presenting the first image to the left eye and the second image to the right eye. The images are then manipulated by performing at least one of swapping the first image and second image, and flipping horizontally the first image and second image. The resulting manipulated images are presented to the viewer to provide at least one distinct stereoscopic view which provides the viewer with an additional perspective on the patient. Accordingly, at least stereoscopic anterior and posterior views can be achieved using a single matched pair of images.
