  • Publication number: 20110179540
    Abstract: The present invention is a protective facial garment which overcomes the problems inherent in garments that cover the face and nose. Namely, the invention addresses the problems of causing eyewear to fog from exhaled breath and having to choose between leaving the mouth and nose exposed versus covering the mouth and nose, which often results in exhaled moisture being held against the skin, causing discomfort. To address these challenges, the device is tailored to provide a vented air pocket in front of the wearer's mouth and nose and to block the natural cavity between the bridge of the wearer's nose and cheekbone. The device thus provides an alternative route for exhaled air, preventing fogging of eyewear. The air pocket provides the further benefit of warming and moistening fresh air, making breathing easier when used in cold air conditions.

  • Publication number: 20100071487
    Abstract: A remotely controlled unit providing three degrees of actuation (rotational, perpendicular to a long axis, parallel to a long axis) of a variety of attachments to assist in the inspection, measurement, lining, and repair of pipe lines. The degrees of actuation are accomplished using a hydraulic system having a hydraulic pump, reservoir, solenoid actuated automatic valves, pistons, and cylinders inside the body of the unit. The components are designed to operate in a partially to fully submersed environment. The unit has an on board camera system that allows an operator the ability to monitor the attachments. In addition to the degrees of actuation, the unit carries a hydraulic clamp that secures the robot in the pipe during its various operations. The unit is controlled and cameras viewed through a control cable that connects the unit to an above ground control station consisting of micro control boards controlled by a CPU.

  • Publication number: 20070167752
    Abstract: Synthetic transmit aperture is provided for three-dimensional ultrasound imaging. A transducer may have separate transmit and receive elements. Broad beams are transmitted, allowing fewer transmit elements and/or more rapid scanning. A multidimensional receive array generates data in response to sequential transmissions, such as transmissions from different angles. The data is combined to increase resolution. A transducer array with offset transmit elements for forming a transmit line source may be used.

  • Patent number: 7222099
    Abstract: The subject invention is directed to a method and system for selecting and purchasing media advertising in a user/server environment accessed through a Web site. The method includes accessing a server system through a Web site by an advertiser in which the advertiser provides information relating to buying criteria and customer data through a form on the Web page in order to select and purchase media advertising. The server system receives and processes the information in order to create at least one media advertising rate request. The server system transmits the rate request to at least one media outlet for processing. The media outlet processes the rate request and transmits the processed rate request to the server system. The server system manipulates the processed rate request to create a media advertising schedule and then transmits the advertising schedule to the advertiser.

  • Publication number: 20070083109
    Abstract: Adaptive line synthesis is provided. Line synthesis of collinear receive beams responsive to spatially distinct transmit beams is a function of many parameters, such as spatial or temporal frequency response of one or more of the receive beams, synthesis function, number of receive beams synthesized, or acquisition sequence. One or more of these parameters is set or adapts as a function of processor estimated or user provided information. By adapting the line synthesis, the performance and image quality is optimized as appropriate for the received data or desired imaging, such as detail resolution, contrast resolution, temporal resolution, shift-invariance and penetration.

  • Publication number: 20070078347
    Abstract: A method is provided to improve the frame-rate in color-flow ultrasound imaging using simultaneous spatially-distinct transmit beams with one or more frequency bands per transmit beam. Pulses of different center frequencies are used simultaneously in different (lateral and/or elevational) directions, thereby reducing the scanning time and improving the frame-rates. Optionally, a multi-modal pulse is used, and flow is estimated separately for the different frequencies. The flow estimates for these pulses are appropriately combined to improve low-velocity sensitivity and to reduce aliasing. A flow sample count with two or more different pulse repetition intervals can be used to further improve low-flow sensitivity and minimize aliasing.

  • Publication number: 20070038082
    Abstract: A medical diagnostic ultrasound transducer system has at least a first and a second set of transducer layers of an element. Each set has one or more transducer layers with independent electrical access. A transmit event through a first set of transducer layers with broadband electrical signals generates acoustic signals containing at least two different frequency bands, and a receive event through a second and different set of transducer layers receives multiple tissue harmonic signals to generate a wide bandwidth response. Fundamental signals can be reduced with a pulse inversion technique through a second transmit event of inverted pulses, a second receive event and superposition of signals from the two receive events.
