  • Patent number: 11427870
    Abstract: A method for estimating a risk for a subject suffering from encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis is provided, including measuring an expression level of at least one microRNA from a sample of the subject, and the microRNA is selected from miR-17, miR-100, miR-155, miR-202, miR-422a, and miR-483; comparing the expression level of the microRNA in the sample to that of a same miRNA of a control, when the expression level of miRNA in the sample is lower than that of the control, the subject is estimated having the risk of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis. A kit for estimating a risk for a subject suffering from encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis is also provided, including at least one agent for identifying the at least one microRNA as above mentioned from the sample of the subject.

  • Publication number: 20210386504
    Abstract: Medical imaging equipment and a medical imaging method are provided. The medical imaging equipment includes medical equipment, a controller, and a head-mounted display. The medical equipment is configured to investigate a body portion and output a first image signal corresponding to the body portion. The first image signal has a first resolution. The controller is coupled to the medical equipment to receive the first image signal and convert the first resolution of the first image signal to a second image signal having a second resolution. The head-mounted display is coupled to the controller to display a display image of the second image signal. The head-mounted display has a direction line. When the head-mounted display faces the body portion, the display image and the body portion are located along to the direction line.

  • Publication number: 20190390400
    Abstract: A process for dyeing a textile substrate containing residual oligomers includes the steps of: a) attaching the textile substrate on a mounting carrier to constitute a substrate-loaded carrier which is to be subjected to supercritical dyeing in a dyeing autoclave; and b) overlying the textile substrate with a micro-porous film which includes pores having a pore size such that when the textile substrate is dyed in the dyeing autoclave, a dye-containing supercritical fluid is allowed to pass through the micro-porous film to permit the textile substrate to be dyed while the residual oligomers entrained in the supercritical fluid are retained by the micro-porous film.

  • Patent number: 9967618
    Abstract: A device may receive an indication of a playback of media content. The device may receive a trigger signal associated with the playback of the media content. The trigger signal may indicate a point, within the playback of the media content, to capture user reaction information associated with the media content. The device may determine, based on the trigger signal, that the user reaction information is to be captured. The device may capture the user reaction information, to form captured user reaction information, based on determining that the user reaction information is to be captured. The captured user reaction information may include an audio recording or a video recording captured by the device. The device may cause the captured user reaction information and the media content to be linked.

  • Publication number: 20170078225
    Abstract: Techniques described herein may be used to analyze written messages between users (e.g., messages in a mobile messaging application, simple messaging service (SMS) messages, instant messages, etc.) to identify media content being discussed by the users. Additionally, the opinions of the users regarding the media content (e.g., favorable, unfavorable, etc.) may be deciphered and used to update user profiles. The updated user profiles may be used to provide media content recommendations for the users, targeted marketing to the users, rating scores for the media content, and user reviews for the media content. The analysis of the written message may also enable the written messages to be organized (e.g., according to topic) within a graphic user interface (GUI) of each user device.
