  • Patent number: 9275478
    Abstract: A method for compressing digital breast tomosynthesis data, a system and a control unit for image reconstruction of three-dimensional digital breast tomosynthesis volumes (DBT). The volume to be reconstructed is analyzed in order to identify clusters of regions in the volume with a low and high degree of diagnostically relevant information. Depending on the affiliation or belonging to a certain cluster, a specific reconstruction algorithm and a specific slab thickness are determined in order to be used for reconstruction of the cluster. Thus, different clusters are reconstructed differently.

  • Patent number: 7704214
    Abstract: A volumetric flow of an analyte, including exhaled air, is fed to a gas sensor unit by used of gas flow device, which can include various sensors for the determination of nitrogen oxides. An oxidation catalyst is used when using an NO2 sensor, which converts nitrogen monoxide to nitrogen dioxide and the gas sensor unit measures the content of nitrogen dioxide. The nitrogen monoxide content is calculated from the nitrogen dioxide content. In order to eliminate cross-sensitivity moisture and ethanol are also measured. The device can be applied to the determination of nitrogen monoxide content of exhaled air.

  • Publication number: 20070179803
    Abstract: A method is for verifying the feasibility of a medical study using acceptance criteria for patients. The method includes defining target criteria for the study. Based on the acceptance criteria, a patient collective including potential patients is selected from a database containing patient data of patients. The patient data of the patient collective are evaluated based on the target criteria. Finally, a measure for the feasibility of the study is established.

  • Publication number: 20070150305
    Abstract: During a method for selecting a potential participant for a medical study on the basis of a selection criterion, patient data assigned to a patient are electronically stored. A secondary criterion is assigned to the selection criterion. The patient data are electronically evaluated on the basis of the secondary criterion. Based on this electronic evaluation, a measure for fulfilling the selection criterion is determined for the patient associated with the patient data. The patient is selected as a potential participant on the basis of this measure.
