  • Patent number: 10764822
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) explicitly accounts for a coverage enhancement (CE or sometimes called enhanced coverage) feature in a public land mobile network (PLMN) search and/or selection. By explicitly using CE indicators in PLMN search and/or selection, a UE can determine whether to use a PLMN that may only be available in CE mode for voice services or data services, or fail to meet criteria, such as high data rate, that cannot be provided in CE mode. For example a UE can use the PLMN search and/or selection with (1) automatic PLMN selection at switch-on or recovery from lack of coverage, (2) higher priority PLMN selection, (3) manual PLMN selection, and/or (4) limited service capabilities while in CE mode.

  • Publication number: 20200203001
    Abstract: Methods for segmenting medical images from different modalities include integrating a plurality of types of quantitative image descriptors with a deep 3D convolutional neural network. The descriptors include: (i) a Gibbs energy for a prelearned 7th-order Markov-Gibbs random field (MGRF) model of visual appearance, (ii) an adaptive shape prior model, and (iii) a first-order appearance model of the original volume to be segmented. The neural network fuses the computed descriptors to obtain the final voxel-wise probabilities of the goal regions.

  • Patent number: 10667778
    Abstract: A system and computation method is disclosed that identifies radiation-induced lung injury after radiation therapy using 4D computed tomography (CT) scans. After deformable image registration, the method segments lung fields, extracts functional and textural features, and classifies lung tissues. The deformable registration locally aligns consecutive phases of the respiratory cycle using gradient descent minimization of the conventional dissimilarity metric. Then an adaptive shape prior, a first-order intensity model, and a second-order lung tissues homogeneity descriptor are integrated to segment the lung fields. In addition to common lung functionality features, such as ventilation and elasticity, specific regional textural features are estimated by modeling the segmented images as samples of a novel 7th-order contrast-offset-invariant Markov-Gibbs random field (MGRF). Finally, a tissue classifier is applied to distinguish between the injured and normal lung tissues.

  • Patent number: 10517920
    Abstract: A method of treating or preventing a bacterial infection in an animal comprises administering to the animal an effective amount of an antibacterial peptide, the antibacterial peptide being derived from degraded date pits which are degraded by solid state degradation by a fungus, Trichoderma reesei. The antibacterial peptide has a molecular mass of less than 10 kDa and an amino acid sequence including (a) SEQ ID NO:4 or (b) SEQ ID NO:6. The bacterial infection is caused by a Gram-positive bacteria or a Gram-negative bacteria, for example, a Salmonella species, a Campylobacter species, a Shigella species, an Escherichia species, a Pseudomonas species, and a Staphylococcus species.

  • Publication number: 20190359070
    Abstract: A battery for a motor vehicle has a battery wall that encloses a battery interior, an extinguishing agent reservoir situated in the battery interior, in which an extinguishing agent is accommodated, and at least one battery cell that is situated in the battery interior separate from the extinguishing agent. The extinguishing agent reservoir has a reservoir wall for retaining the extinguishing agent, and the reservoir wall has a first wall temperature at a normal operating temperature of the battery cell and has a second wall temperature at a limiting operating temperature of the battery cell. The reservoir wall is designed to maintain sealtightness for retaining the extinguishing agent at the first wall temperature and to be destroyed by the heat at the second wall temperature. The second wall temperature is greater than the first wall temperature, and the reservoir wall may be brought to the second wall temperature by means of the battery cell of the battery.

    Abstract: A computer aided diagnostic system and automated method to classify a kidney. Image data for a medical scan that includes image data of a kidney may be received. The kidney image data may be segmented from other image data of the medical scan. One or more iso-contours may be registered for the kidney image data, and renal cortex image data may be segmented from the kidney image data based on the one or more registered iso-contours.

  • Publication number: 20190273762
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure describe methods, apparatuses, and systems for management of voice services GP for user equipments (UEs) in coverage enhancement (CE) mode B. A cellular protocol stack (CPS) of the UE may indicate to an internet for protocol (IP) multimedia services (IMS) circuitry of the UE that the UE is operating in the CE mode B (or will be operating in the CE mode B when it awakes from idle mode). The IMS circuitry may receive an SIP invite from an IMS server to invite the UE to engage in a mobile terminated (MT) call. In response to the SIP invite, the IMS circuitry of the UE may reject the SIP invite and deregister the UE from voice services. Other embodiments may be described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20180265405
    Abstract: Oil sands drill cuttings waste represents one of the most difficult challenges for the oil sands mining sector. Reducing the amount oil sands drill cutting waste sent to landfill offers one of the best solutions for waste management. The present disclosure provides cementitious formulations comprised of treated oil sand waste for use in geotechnical applications. The cementitious formulations include but are not limited to grouts, cement and controlled low strength materials (CLSM) and in these formulations the treated oil sand waste (TOSW) is used to replace conventional constituents such as some of the fly ash in concrete, some of the cement in grout formulations and some of the fly ash and cement in the controlled low strength materials. The treated oil sand waste is predominantly silicon dioxide (SiO2) which is produced using a process and system which separates water and oil from the solid waste, known as the thermos-mechanical cuttings cleaner (TCC).
