  • Patent number: 10779866
    Abstract: A rod reducer assembly is provided and is selectively mountable to a pedicle screw assembly. The pedicle screw assembly includes a pedicle screw housing that defines a rod-receiving recess. The pedicle screw assembly includes an extension assembly that is coupled to the pedicle screw housing by a frangible member. The rod reducer is configured to reduce a spinal rod into the rod-receiving recess of the pedicle screw assembly. The rod reducer assembly may include a derotation sleeve configured to inhibit the frangible member from breaking while manipulating a spinal bone.

  • Patent number: 10733771
    Abstract: A method of reconstructing an image of a colon, including receiving scan data of a colon taken by an imaging capsule that traverses the colon; wherein the imaging capsule emits X-ray radiation inside the colon and includes detectors that detect photons that are returned toward the imaging capsule from X-ray fluorescence and Compton back scattering interactions responsive to the radiation; and wherein the scan data includes counts of photons detected by each detector from X-ray fluorescence and Compton back scattering interactions; defining an initial guess of a geometry of a contour of a slice of the colon; calculating count values for each detector responsive to the geometry using a forward model; comparing the calculated count values of each detector with the values from the scan data; if the results of the comparison do not indicate reaching an optimal match then adjust the defined geometry and repeat the calculating and comparing.

  • Patent number: 10610144
    Abstract: A method and system for generating a personalized health management recommendation for a user. During operation, the system obtains first physiological data generated by a wearable device worn by the user that indicates a physiological condition of the user. The system then generates a prediction model for the user based on the first physiological data. Next, the system obtains real-time physiological data generated by the wearable device. The system may generate a prediction by analyzing the real-time physiological data to determine whether the user's physiological condition exceeds a threshold parameter according to the prediction model. Upon determining that the threshold parameter has been exceeded, the system may select a recommendation and send the recommendation message to the user's mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20200100720
    Abstract: A method for measuring a glomerular filtration rate in a mammalian kidney comprises a source of reporter and marker fluorescent molecules. The fluorescent molecules are introduced into the blood stream of a mammalian subject. Over a period of time, a measurement of the intensities of the reporter and marker fluorescent molecules is taken. A ratio is calculated to determine the health of the subject's kidney. This method measures volume of plasma distribution based on a fluorescence of a marker molecule relative to a fluorescence of a reporter molecule.

  • Publication number: 20200094515
    Abstract: Ion-doped two-dimensional nanomaterials are made by inducing electronic carriers (electrons and holes) in a two-dimensional material using a captured ion layer at the surface of the material. The captured ion layer is stabilized using a capping layer. The induction of electronic carriers works in atomically-thin two-dimensional materials, where it induces high carrier density of at least 1014 carriers/cm2. A variety of novel ion-doped nanomaterials and p-n junction-based nanoelectronic devices are made possible by the method.

  • Publication number: 20200052557
    Abstract: An electric motor has a stator defining multiple stator poles with associated electrical windings, and a rotor having multiple rotor poles. The rotor has flux barriers between adjacent rotor poles, the flux barriers each having a material with an electrical conductivity higher than the rotor pole material. The flux barriers are electrically isolated from one another external to the ferromagnetic material. Eddy currents are induced in the flux barrier to cause destructive interference of an impending magnetic field, such that the flux barrier effectively acts to inhibit magnetic flux during motor operation, which in some cases will result in a repulsive force that will act to increase an induced motive force on the rotor poles.

  • Publication number: 20190243009
    Abstract: Ultrasensitive, miniaturized, and inexpensive ion and ionizing radiation detection devices are provided. The devices include an insulating substrate, metallic contact pads disposed on a surface of the substrate, and a strip of an ultrathin two-dimensional material having a thickness of one or a few atomic layers. The strip is in contact with the contact pads, and a voltage is applied across the two-dimensional sensor material. Individual ions contacting the two-dimensional material alter the current flowing through the material and are detected. The devices can be used in a network of monitors for high energy ions and ionizing radiation.

  • Patent number: 10370674
    Abstract: Compositions and methods include genetically encoding and expressing a novel delta-9 desaturase in plant cells. In some embodiments, methods of expressing nucleic acids in a plant cell to take advantage of the delta-9 desaturase enzyme's activity, such that the percent composition of saturated fatty acids in plant seeds is decreased and there is a concomitant increase in ?9 fatty acids. In other embodiments, amino acid sequences have delta-9 desaturase activity. Methods can involve expression of delta-9 desaturase in plant cells, plant materials, and whole plants for the purpose of increasing the amount of mono unsaturated fatty acids in whole plants, plant seeds, and plant materials, for example, seeds.

    Abstract: Heterocrystals of metal dichalcogenides and Bi2S3, Bi2Se3 or Bi2Te3 are presented, in which the metal dichalcogenides and Bi2S3, Bi2Se3 or Bi2Te3 do not largely retain their independent properties. These heterocrystals exhibit electronic and optical changes, which make them attractive for beyond-silicon electronics and optoelectronics. Particularly, these heterocrystals can be re-configured in a manner that allows bit writing and pattern drawing. Embodiments of these heterocrystals, methods of forming these heterocrystals, methods of reconfiguring the heterocrystals, information storage devices, optoelectronic circuits and photonic crystals are presented.
