  • Patent number: 11568540
    Abstract: A method, system, and computer-readable medium, for detecting whether an eye blink or non-blink is captured in the image. The method includes filtering, from the image, one or more objects that are predicted to be unsuitable for determining whether an eye blink or no-blink is captured in the image, to provide a filtered image. The method also includes correlating the filtered image with a reference image, and determining, based on the correlating, whether the eye blink or non-blink is captured in the image. The eye blink is a full eye blink or a partial eye blink, and the images may be sequentially captured IR SLO images, in one example embodiment herein. Images determined to include an eye blink can be omitted from inclusion in a final (e.g., OCT) image.

  • Patent number: 11546154
    Abstract: This invention relates to a network interface device. A first capture device interfaces with a first external information source to capture first external information. A processor processes the captured first external information and stores it in a first media. The processor initiates the storage of the first captured information at an initial time and completes storage of the first captured information at a completion time, thus providing a stored defined set of first captured information. A transmitter transmits the defined set of stored captured information to a remote location on a network. A remote processing system is disposed at the remote node on the network and includes a database and a receiver for receiving the transmitted defined set of first captured information. A data converter is operable to convert the received defined set of first captured information to a second format. The database stores the set of converted captured information.

  • Patent number: 11501545
    Abstract: Automation of microscopic pathological diagnosis relies on digital image quality, which, in turn, affects the rates of false positive and negative cellular objects designated as abnormalities. Cytogenetic biodosimetry is a genotoxic assay that detects dicentric chromosomes (DCs) arising from exposure to ionizing radiation. The frequency of DCs is related to radiation dose received, so the inferred radiation dose depends on the accuracy of DC detection. To improve this accuracy, image segmentation methods are used to rank high quality cytogenetic images and eliminate suboptimal metaphase cell data in a sample based on novel quality measures. When sufficient numbers of high quality images are found, the microscope system is directed to terminate metaphase image collection for a sample. The International Atomic Energy Agency recommends at least 500 images be used to estimate radiation dose, however often many more images are collected in order to select the metaphase cells with good morphology for analysis.
