  • Patent number: 11478665
    Abstract: Techniques for particle beam therapy include receiving a target region inside a subject for particle therapy, a minimum dose inside the target region, and a maximum dose inside the subject but outside target region. Multiple beam axis angles are determined, each involving a gantry angle and a couch position. Multiple spots within the target region are determined. For each beam axis angle a pristine particle scan beam (not coaxial with any other particle scan beam) is determined such that a Bragg Peak is directed to a spot, and repeated until every spot is subjected to a Bragg Peak or an intersection of two or more such pristine scan beams. Output data indicating the pristine beamlets is stored for operation of a particle beam therapy apparatus.

  • Patent number: 11458279
    Abstract: A system in which a wearable device detects an electroencephalographic (EEG) response from a user during sleep-related activity, e.g. trying to fall asleep, being asleep or waking up, and outputs an audio signal that is tailored, based on the EEG response, to enhance the user's sleep experience. In particular, an audio, thermal and/or olfactory signal may be used to facilitate any one or more of (i) a smooth path into REM sleep, (ii) a reduced potential for sleep being disturbed, and (iii) exit from sleep at an optimum time. In one example, the system synchronizes properties of an audio signal comprising a dominant white and/or pink noise component with the identified sleep-related parameters. The synchronized properties can include any of intensity, frequency, tone, volume and rhythm.
