  • Patent number: 10874779
    Abstract: There is described an artificial heart comprising a pump, the pump comprising a housing (10) defining a substantially spherical cavity and comprising four vascular connectors (15in, 15out, 15?in, 15?out), namely two inlet connectors (15in, 15?in) and two outlet connectors (15out, 15?out) to connect the pump to the pulmonary and systemic circulation. A rotatable disc (11) is mounted within the housing (10) and secured to rotate about a fixed axis (12). Two oscillating palettes (16a, 16b) are mounted to rotate about a mobile axis (17) movable within a plane perpendicular to the fixed axis (12), wherein said palettes (16a, 16b) are connected together and are arranged on both sides of the rotatable disc (11), in a diametrically opposed fashion, to create two pumping units comprising each two variable sized chambers (20a, 20b, 20c, 20d) in fluid communication with one corresponding inlet and outlet connector respectively.

  • Patent number: 10832451
    Abstract: In order to reduce the time and effort required to generate high-quality image reconstructions, a machine-trained neural network may assign a quality score to an image at each iteration of a reconstruction. The neural network may confirm that the iterative reconstruction process increases image quality as each iteration converges to the solution of an optimization problem. The image quality score generated by the neural network may drive the reconstruction toward better image quality by contributing to a regularization term of a cost function minimized by the optimization problem. The neural network may allow for multiple reconstruction of image data to be performed rapidly and for the highest image quality reconstruction to be identified. Additionally, the neural network may provide exit criteria of the iterative reconstruction or may contribute to the optimization problem.

  • Patent number: 10740655
    Abstract: A system and method automatically predicts an evolution of a cognitive score for a subject by classifying a cognitive data set for the subject into a first or second class by determining the cognitive set of data for each subject of a group, acquiring for each subject a neuropsychological score used for classifying each subject in the first or second class, and training a two-class machine learning classification algorithm on the cognitive data sets of all subjects. For each subject, the cognitive data set is used as input of the algorithm and the obtained classification of the subject as output target of the algorithm. The algorithm classifies each cognitive data set in the first or second class. The evolution of the cognitive score of a subject is predicted by the trained algorithm for automatically classifying a new cognitive dataset for the subject into the first or second class.

  • Patent number: 10578695
    Abstract: Selectively exciting bulk protons in certain tissue components, e.g. water, while suppressing the excitation of others, e.g. fat, can lead to images with better contrast for desired features. The invention provides binomial, off-resonance RF excitation pulses for differentiating tissue excitation that yields a larger fat suppression that prior art water excitation methods. Proper balancing of the frequency offset and the pulse duration with a relative phase offset between the pulses leads to large-bandwidth pass- and stopbands for water and fat, respectively. The pulses can be applied with short, or even zero, interpulse delay, leading to substantial time savings in the imaging sequence.

  • Patent number: 10357175
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for predicting awakening in a comatose patient based on the progression of auditory discrimination during early stages of coma. EEG measures are acquired from the patient during two distinct periods when said patient is exposed to auditory stimuli comprising repeated standard and deviant sounds. The first period occurs when the comatose patient is in a hypothermia state and the second period occurs when the comatose patient is in a normal temperature state and preferably within 2-3 days from the onset of the coma. The present invention further relates to a computer-implemented method thereof.

  • Patent number: 10282640
    Abstract: A method improves a detection of a brain tissue pathology in magnetic resonance (MR) images of a patient. The method includes acquiring multiple MR imaging data for creating four different contrast maps of a patient brain. From the multiple MR imaging data, performing an estimation of gray matter (GM), white matter (WM) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentration for each voxel of a part of the patient brain. From the multiple MR imaging data, segmenting the part of the patient brain in different regions-of-interest (ROIs) according to a chosen atlas. For each voxel of each of the contrast maps of the patient brain, computing, for the part of the patient brain, a deviation score. The method further includes creating from the deviation score and for each of the quantitative contrast maps, a deviation map representing the part of the brain in dependence on the deviation score calculated for each voxel.

  • Publication number: 20170224843
    Abstract: A treatment of Huntington's disease (HD) using the Clustered-Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) system. This technology offers the possibility to design a small RNA (sgRNA), which is incorporated into a CRISPR-associated protein (Cas9) to recognize and induce DNA double-strand breaks at a specific target location. In the context of HD, this allows to block the expression of the mutant huntingtin or repair the CAG expansion causing the disease.
