  • Publication number: 20190069802
    Abstract: An MRI image processing and analysis system may identify instances of structure in MRI flow data, e.g., coherency, derive contours and/or clinical markers based on the identified structures. The system may be remotely located from one or more MRI acquisition systems, and perform: perform error detection and/or correction on MRI data sets (e.g., phase error correction, phase aliasing, signal unwrapping, and/or on other artifacts); segmentation; visualization of flow (e.g., velocity, arterial versus venous flow, shunts) superimposed on anatomical structure, quantification; verification; and/or generation of patient specific 4-D flow protocols. An asynchronous command and imaging pipeline allows remote image processing and analysis in a timely and secure manner even with complicated or large 4-D flow MRI data sets.

  • Patent number: 7433678
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method and a system for rapidly establishing a communication, particularly a Bluetooth type communication, between at least one reader and a plurality of communicating objects. Each communicating object and said reader have a communication protocol. Each communicating object has a communication address. The method comprises: the step of defining a unique communication address for all of the communicating objects; the step, for said reader, of determining whether at least one communicating object is present in the environment in which said reader is located, by sending a request to the unique communication address of all the communicating objects; the step, for each communicating object that receives said request, of revealing its presence to said reader by sending a response signal that is time-shifted relative to the response signals sent by the other communicating objects.

  • Publication number: 20070111662
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method and a system for rapidly establishing a Bluetooth type communication between a reader and a communicating object. The Bluetooth type communication protocol implements a radio frequency communication process on channels having specific frequencies. The specific frequencies are divided into a first subgroup of frequencies and a second subgroup of frequencies. Each communicating object of alternately and successively selects a frequency from the first subgroup of frequencies followed by a frequency from the second subgroup of frequencies. The reader randomly selects the first subgroup of frequencies or the second subgroup of frequencies, and performs frequency scans of the selected subgroup of frequencies before performing a scan of the other subgroup of frequencies.

  • Publication number: 20040219910
    Abstract: The present invention pertains to a method, a system, a server, a portable device and chips which are used to supply information (I) contained in a database (12) in relation to the position occupied by a user in a site. The method comprises the steps: for a portable device (3, 4), of receiving, from chips (5), data specific to said chips (5), correlated with the information (I); of establishing, via a communication network (8), a connection between the portable device (3, 4) and a server (7) associated with the database (12); of communicating the specific data to the server (7); of seeking the information (I) in the database (12); of transmitting the information (I) to the portable device (3, 4), via the communication network (8); for the portable device (3, 4), of sending the information (I), the contents of which are correlated with the specific data, to the user (1).

  • Patent number: 6486784
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method and a system enabling the blind and the partially sighted to direct themselves and find their way in unknown surroundings. Said method consists in teletraining using a portable sensor in particular touch-sensitive or audio, the blind or partially sighted person about the path he must follow to move from one point to another, avoiding obstacles. Said method enables the blind or partially sighted person, having no material landmark which he could remember and recognize by feeling his way with his walking stick, to find his way particularly in streets of a town, in the corridors of an underground railway or of a building.
