  • Patent number: 7773785
    Abstract: One embodiment discloses a computerized method of facilitating cardiac intervention, comprising inputting patient data, creating a computerized interactive model of a heart based on the patient data, wherein the model comprises features, simulating at least one proposed cardiac intervention treatment by adding or deleting features to the model, and determining the effects of the proposed cardiac simulation upon the entire model. Simulations may be repeated to allow the user to determine an optimal cardiac intervention. Additionally, a template may be created from the model to use as a guide during the cardiac intervention.

  • Publication number: 20070203668
    Abstract: A level sensor includes a first transducer generating a first signal, a second transducer generating a second signal, and a processor configured to switch operation between a first mode and a second mode. In the first mode, the first transducer generates the first signal and the second transducer senses a reflection of the first signal from a surface. In the second mode, the second transducer generates the second signal and the first transducer senses a reflection of the second signal from a reference target. The processor determines a distance to the surface.
