  • Patent number: 11981484
    Abstract: A labelling arrangement for a multi-part container includes a sleeve-shaped cap element having an interlocking structure adapted to be applied to a first part of the container and coupled to the first part by the interlocking structure. The labelling arrangement further includes a sealing label adapted to be attached to a second part of the container by a second label portion and to surround the applied cap element by a first label portion. The labelling arrangement further includes at least one severing region so that, when the container applied with the labelling arrangement is opened, the labelling arrangement is severable in the severing region and at least a part of the cap element is removable together with the first part of the container from the second part of the container.

  • Publication number: 20240119870
    Abstract: A system includes a container and a security label. The container is divisible into a plurality of parts and has a container body and a removable container closure. The security label has a first label section and a second label section forming respective parts of a common material web and a severing element which is arranged between the first and second label section with respect to a longitudinal axis of the security label. The security label is applied to the container such that the first label section is attached to the container body and the second label section surrounds the container closure. The second label section is formed such that the security label is closed along an edge line above the container closure by gluing and/or welding such that the second label section encloses the removable container closure.

  • Patent number: 11410374
    Abstract: Synthetic CT is estimated for planning or other purposes from surface data (e.g., depth camera information). The estimation uses parameterization, such as landmark and/or segmentation information, in addition to the surface data. In training and/or application, the parameterization may be used to correct the predicted CT volume. The CT volume may be predicted as a sub-part of the patient, such as estimating the CT volume for scanning one system, organ, or type of tissue separately from other system, organ, or type of tissue.

  • Patent number: 11257259
    Abstract: For topogram predication from surface data, a sensor captures the outside surface of a patient. A generative adversarial network (GAN) generates the topogram representing an interior organ based on the outside surface of the patient. To further adapt to specific patients, internal landmarks are used in the topogram prediction. The topogram generated by one generator of the GAN may be altered based on landmarks generated by another generator.

  • Publication number: 20210353176
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method is for classifying a body type of at least one person. In an embodiment, the method includes receiving at least one image data record of the respective person, which maps at least one subarea of the person; and ascertaining a body type for the person by an optimization method. A respective person model is used for each of the possible body types, which as a function of at least one person parameter determines an expected person geometry of the person described by the person model. The body type is selected by the optimization method by a similarity measure for the similarity of the image data record or a person geometry ascertained from the image data record being optimized with the expected person geometry by selecting the body type.

  • Patent number: 10913388
    Abstract: A procedure is provided for actuating at least one main headlamp of a lighting unit for a motor vehicle. An overall light distribution generated by means of at least two segments of a segmented light module is allocated to a light function. The light control switches on or switches off the light function depending on at least one electric input signal of the light control. In order to facilitate the application of an animation of a vehicle lighting for a plurality of vehicle and environmental situations, the overall light distribution of the light function is built up from a plurality of light distribution segments (a-f; a-b; a-c). Each of the light distribution segments (a-f; a-b; a-c) is generated by means of at least one segment of the segmented light module. The plurality of light distribution segments (a-f; a-b; a-c) are switched on and/or switched off by the light control in a previously determined and stored sequence.

  • Patent number: 10521927
    Abstract: Machine learning is used to train a network to predict the location of an internal body marker from surface data. A depth image or other image of the surface of the patient is used to determine the locations of anatomical landmarks. The training may use a loss function that includes a term to limit failure to predict a landmark and/or off-centering of the landmark. The landmarks may then be used to configure medical scanning and/or for diagnosis.
