  • Patent number: 11798179
    Abstract: The present disclosure, in some embodiments, relates to a non-transitory computer-readable medium storing computer-executable instructions. The computer readable medium is configured to cause a processor to access an image volume of a rectum comprising a rectal tumor. A forward mapping is generated based on non-rigidly registering a healthy rectal atlas to the image volume. The forward mapping is inverted to generate an inverse mapping from the image volume to the healthy rectal atlas. Based on the inverse mapping, a plurality of deformation vectors, associated with a deformation within a rectal wall of the rectum, are determined. Magnitude based deformation features and orientation based deformation features are computed from the plurality of deformation vectors. One or more of the magnitude based deformation features and one or more of the orientation based deformation features are utilized to determine a response of a patient to a chemoradiation treatment.

  • Patent number: 11783575
    Abstract: A method of supporting an aircraft approaching a runway is provided. Example implementations involve receiving a sequence of images, captured by a camera onboard the aircraft. Example implementations involve applying a received image to a machine learning model trained to detect the runway or a runway marking in the image, and to produce a mask that includes a segment of pixels of the image assigned to an object class for the runway or marking. Example implementations may also involve applying the mask to a corner detector to detect interest points on the mask and match the interest points to corresponding points on the runway or the marking that have known runway-framed local coordinates. Example implementations may also involve performing a perspective-n-point estimation to determine a current pose estimate of the aircraft relative to the runway or the marking and outputting the current pose estimate for use during final approach.
