  • Publication number: 20220338844
    Abstract: In accordance with a method for characterization of particles in a fluid-filled hollow structure, an ultrasound signal with a frequency spectrum, which exhibits a local maximum at a variable measurement frequency, is emitted in the direction of a part area of the hollow structure and reflected components are detected. The measurement frequency is tuned in a predetermined measurement interval, and depending on the detected reflected components, a spectral response curve is acquired as a function of the measurement frequency. Depending on the response curve, at least one characteristic property for a part of the particles located in the part area of the hollow structure is determined. The characteristic property includes a measure for an adhesion of the particles of the part of the particles located in the part area of the hollow structure.

  • Publication number: 20190192103
    Abstract: Method and systems are provided for automatically generating a volume model of correction data for an X-ray based medical imaging device. A plurality of X-ray images is recorded of a body region of a patient to be examined from different positions in each case. The plurality of X-ray images is used to generate a first volume model of the body region. Image artifacts are corrected in the first volume model using the plurality of X-ray images and thus a corrected volume model is generated. The corrected volume model is used to determine a contour of an artifact volume affected by image artifacts in the first volume model and the contour of the artifact volume is defined as a volume model of correction data. The volume model of correction data is stored on a data medium and/or output via an interface.

  • Patent number: 9248313
    Abstract: A therapy system includes a diagnostic image scanner (12) that acquires a diagnostic image of a target region to be treated. A planning processor (70) is configured to generate a patient specific adaptive radiation therapy plan based on patient specific biomarkers before and during therapy. A first set of patient specific biomarkers is determined then used for the determination of a first normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) model and a first tumor control probability (TCP) model. A radiation therapy device (40) administers a first dose of radiation to the target region with a protocol based on the first NTCP model and the first TCP model. A second set of patient specific biomarkers is determined. A relationship between the first set and second set of patient specific biomarkers is used to determine a second NTCP model and a second TCP model.

  • Patent number: 9179885
    Abstract: When estimating an arterial input function or a patient under study, cross-calibration factors are generated by comparing nuclear scan data of a radioactive material (e.g., F18) and measuring a sample of the radioactive material in a gamma counter. The derived cross-calibration factors are applied to venous samples collected from the patient during a nuclear scan after infusion with a radioactive tracer, to convert gamma values counted by the gamma counter into concentration values. The concentration values are used to optimize an initial estimated input function, thereby generating an arterialized input function.

  • Patent number: 8331639
    Abstract: A radiological imaging method comprises: acquiring radiological lines of response (LOR's) from a subject; grouping the acquired LOR's into time intervals such that each group of LOR's (20) was acquired during a selected time interval; identifying a region of interest (60, 74) for each time interval based on LOR's grouped into that time interval; for each time interval, determining a positional characteristic (102) of the region of interest identified for that time interval based on LOR's grouped into that time interval; for each time interval, spatially adjusting LOR's grouped into that time interval based on the positional characteristic of the region of interest identified for that time interval; and reconstructing at least the spatially adjusted LOR's to generate a motion compensated reconstructed image.

  • Patent number: 8315810
    Abstract: An apparatus, method, system, computer-readable medium and use for individual patient therapy planning of diseases such as cancer for different therapy modalities, such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy is provided. A new aspect of the invention is that the degree of bone marrow depression of the patient is related to the count of immature blood platelets, which are measured before each treatment. Some embodiments of the invention provide an advantage allowing reducing the level of uncertainty in the prediction of the risk of bone marrow depression, and thus enabling to safely improve the therapy effect by an increase of the radiation dosage and/or chemical dosage to the individual patient while the risk for bone marrow depression is minimized.

  • Publication number: 20100133440
    Abstract: This invention relates to a system for determining a biodistribution of radioactive agents in a subject. According to the invention, a detector system comprising two or more detectors arranged to be attached to the subject at localized areas is used for detecting the radiation emitted from the imaging agents at localized tissues within the subject. The measuring results in separate radiation data sets associated to the tissues. The detectors are further being arranged to adapt the measuring rate to the pharmacokinetic behavior of the tissues in order to capture all relevant data points. A processor then uses the data sets for determining the radioactivity within each respective tissue and based thereon the biodistribution within the subject.
