  • Patent number: 10445462
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence findings system includes a findings engine that receives medical image data and generates findings based on the medical image data and image interpretation algorithms that take into account stored preferences for a user. A client viewer presents the findings to the user. An adjustment engine allows the user to adjust the findings to produce a report. A tracking module tracks findings and adjustments made to the findings by the user when producing the report. The tracking module produces tracking information. A machine learning engine receives the tracking information and based on the adjustments made to the findings by the user adjusts the stored preferences for the user.

  • Patent number: 5398700
    Abstract: A surgical drive comprises a main panel and a "critical zone" panel secured thereto. A fenestration is formed by cutting through the "critical zone" panel. The main panel is a light weight fabric having a relatively high coefficient of friction. The "critical zone" panel comprises a barrier panel lying against the main panel and an outwardly facing absorbent panel, having an irregular surface. The critical "critical zone" panel is folded to form troughs for capturing liquid incident to a surgical procedure. Corner constructions close the ends of the troughs.

  • Patent number: 5244718
    Abstract: A polyester wrapper fabric having permeability for penetration of steam in sterilization surgical instruments. The fabric is a two by two twill in which the filling yarns are core and affect texturized yarn. A herringbone weave is another embodiment. In other embodiments plain woven portions are combined with the twill and herringbone weaves to minimize ravelling.

  • Patent number: 5236532
    Abstract: A liquid impermeable barrier fabric which resists penetration of liquids under finite hydraulic heads and maintains that capable after upwards of 75 institutional washing/sterilization cycles. The barrier fabric is structurally characterized by a silicone membrane attached to a fabric substrate. The substrate is a tightly woven fabric which is constructed of polyester yarns. Attachment of the membrane to the fabric substrate by a bonding mechanism in which the silicone material is in intimate contact with a substantial portion of the looped portions of the yarn, which define the surface of the fabric. This bonding mechanism also includes hydrophilicity of the yarn surfaces with which the silicone is in intimate contact. The fabric is treated with a hydrophilic finish to provide this aspect of the bonding mechanism. This barrier fabric is provided through the use of coating/calendaring apparatus.
