  • Patent number: 11282263
    Abstract: A method, system and computer programs for computing simultaneous rectilinear paths using medical images are disclosed. The method comprises receiving a 3D medical image comprising voxels representing a volume of an anatomical region of a patient and a preliminary path determined by two points traversing said 3D medical image, wherein said 3D medical image has segmented therein at least one area of interest, the preliminary path comprising a security zone with a given distance; computing a distance map of said area of interest and mapping its voxels to a first value or to a second value depending on a distance threshold, the latter being equal to said given distance of the security zone; selecting the voxels having said second value and projecting them using a frustum that projects the preliminary path onto a single point, to obtain a 2D projected image that includes a plurality of rectilinear paths.

  • Publication number: 20200049393
    Abstract: ADAPTIVE CONTROL PROCEDURE FOR REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS which comprises the detection of the frost level in the evaporator by means of a calculation method of NTU rate, allowing to define: the most suitable defrosting time, the energization of the drainage resistors and the adaptive management of the evaporator fan combining different operating modes. An ice-free mode which uses only the cooling capacity of the refrigerant, and different modes with ice which benefits from the latent heat stored in the ice to produce energy savings, depending on the level of frost in the evaporator. For calculating the NTU rate, it uses the evaporator as a reference when it is dry at the beginning, and when the cooling system is in operation, it calculates the NTU rate with a variable frequency operating mode depending on the evaporator performance or level of ice and its comparison with the cited reference.
