  • Patent number: 10883933
    Abstract: The invention relates to analyzing a substance. An optical medium is arrange on a substance surface with at least one region of the optical medium surface in contact with the substance surface. An excitation light beam is emitted through the contacting region of the medium surface to the substance surface. A measurement light beam is emitted through the optical medium to the contacting region of the medium surface such that the measurement light beam and the excitation light beam overlap on the interface of the optical medium and of the substance surface, on which the measurement light beam is reflected. A deflection of the reflected measurement light beam is detected in dependence on the wavelength of the excitation light beam. The substance is then analyzed based on the detected deflection of the measurement light beam in dependence on the wavelength of the excitation light beam.

    Abstract: A method and system are provided for at least symbolically reconstructing a reconstruction data set of at least one vessel segment in a vessel tree of a patient. Input data for the reconstruction comprises at least two two-dimensional angiographic projection images taken in different acquisition geometries. At least one first angiographic projection image showing the vessel segment is acquired. An evaluation measure is automatically determined for each first angiographic projection image using three-dimensional preliminary information for the vessel segment.

  • Patent number: 10753494
    Abstract: A pneumatic valve, includes an air chamber with a supply port to supply compressed air into the air chamber and one or more discharge ports for discharging compressed air from the air chamber. An actuator with a movable closing element and a shape memory alloy SMA element are provided in the valve. The SMA element deforms in response to a supply of electrical heating current and effects an activation of the actuator by movement of the closing element. When the actuator is in an activated state, the closing element blocks the supply of compressed air via the supply port is blocked. When the actuator is in a deactivated state, the closing element enables the supply of compressed air via the supply port. Upon deactivation of the actuator, the closing element is moved by a restoring force into the free setting. The valve includes a check valve with an elastic element.
