  • Patent number: 10445114
    Abstract: The same command surface on a page may be associated with unrelated components and applications. Each of the components registers the commands associated with a shared command surface that they will be utilizing. Each component may utilize an arbitrary number of commands that are associated with the command surface. The command manager acts as a message broker between the components on the page and the command surfaces. When a command that is associated with a command surface is received, the command manager dispatches the command message to the appropriate components.

  • Publication number: 20190269378
    Abstract: A computed tomography system has an x-ray source, x-ray detector, a gantry, and a controller configured to automatically initiate an air-calibration using the source and detector with air in an air space and to determine gain values for channels of the detector from the automatically initiated air-calibration. A computed tomography system having a patient bore, a controller, an x-ray source, and a detector is calibrated by receiving a setting for a medical scan to be performed by the computed tomography system for a particular patient, the setting being one of a plurality of optional values, scanning air and not the patient in the patient bore with the source and the detector using the setting, determining a gain value based on the scanning with the setting and not the other optional values, and scanning the patient with the source and the detector using the setting and the gain value.

  • Publication number: 20190248570
    Abstract: A cooler capable of achieving a sufficient temperature gradient between an inside of the cooler and an outside of the cooler such that at least a partial vacuum forms within the cooler may include an enclosure defined by at least one wall and a lid. The lid may form a relatively airtight seal with a wall of the cooler when in a closed position. A vacuum release assembly may be disposed in one of the walls or lid of the cooler, the assembly being capable of reducing a pressure differential between the enclosure and the outside of the cooler.

  • Publication number: 20190253525
    Abstract: A data transaction processing system including multiple transaction processors also includes an active transaction receiver that sequences all incoming messages from various sources to facilitate transactional determinism, as well as a results arbiter to efficiently decide which transaction processor result to choose as the correct output. The data transaction processing system minimizes overall latency by optimizing which transaction processors and results arbiters are responsive to specific client computer input requests or messages.

  • Patent number: 10357221
    Abstract: A method for calibrating detectors in a CT scanner, wherein the new calibration process uses a combination of slab-based and water-based calibrations. By combining both calibrations, the complexity of each procedure can be reduced which will reduce restrictions on the quality of detectors used in the scanner. The slabs can be made out of commercially available material such as acrylic, and they will require no special treatment. Combining both calibrations also reduces the number of water phantoms needed for the calibration and the complexity of the calibration algorithm. Furthermore, the slabs can be shaped based on the scanner geometry so as to optimize the slab-based calibration step.

  • Patent number: 10345209
    Abstract: A fusion bead testing device is provided for testing the strength of a fusion bead removed from a pipe joint. The testing device comprises a first pressing means for exerting a force against the fusion bead. If the fusion bead splits as a result of the applied force then the fusion bead fails a quality control test and the fusion bead and consequently the pipe joint from which the bead was removed are deemed too weak. The fusion bead testing apparatus comprises an automatic split detection device for detecting a split in the bead.

  • Publication number: 20190202630
    Abstract: A hollow extension collar for a flowable material dispensing box, fits over a prior art dispensing box and can be locked in place to increase the enclosed volume incrementally. The incremental increase is determined by the height of walls from which the extension collar is formed. Multipe extension collars can be stacked on top of each other and filled with flowable material.

  • Patent number: 10327968
    Abstract: A jumpseat for an emergency transport vehicle having a patient compartment that includes a medical scanning device and a patient stretcher having a stretcher axis. The jumpseat includes a post element rotatably attached to a floor portion of the patient compartment, wherein the floor portion is located in a clearance space between the scanning device and a head end of the stretcher. The jumpseat also includes a seating element rotatably attached to the post element. The post and seating elements are moveable between a stowed position wherein the post element and seating element are substantially horizontal and a deployed position wherein the post element is substantially vertical and the seating element is substantially horizontal and located in the clearance space and in-line with a patient's body axis.

  • Patent number: 10152362
    Abstract: In one implementation, a document having one or more content items is presented in a web browser to a user. A user input to select a content item in the displayed document and a transfer request to transfer the selected content item to the system cupboard are received. In response to the received transfer request, the content item is transformed in an editing surface embedded in the document from a source format of the content item into a target format compatible with the system clipboard. The content item transformed into the target format can then be transferred to the system clipboard.
