  • Publication number: 20190180411
    Abstract: A system and method of providing composite real-time dynamic imagery of a medical procedure site from multiple modalities which continuously and immediately depicts the current state and condition of the medical procedure site synchronously with respect to each modality and without undue latency is disclosed. The composite real-time dynamic imagery may be provided by spatially registering multiple real-time dynamic video streams from the multiple modalities to each other. Spatially registering the multiple real-time dynamic video streams to each other may provide a continuous and immediate depiction of the medical procedure site with an unobstructed and detailed view of a region of interest at the medical procedure site at multiple depths. A user may thereby view a single, accurate, and current composite real-time dynamic imagery of a region of interest at the medical procedure site as the user performs a medical procedure.

  • Publication number: 20140318545
    Abstract: Resuscitator devices including inflation control devices and the inflation control valves can prevent an excessive number of breaths per minute during manual resuscitation from being delivered to a patient. The inflation control valves are inlet valves for a resuscitator device having a flexible chamber that extends from a first end to a second end, the second end being configured to attach to an airway adjunct. The valve housing may be configured to be disposed about the first end and to receive air for inflating the flexible chamber, the valve housing being partially disposed within the flexible chamber. The inflation control member may be configured to control inflation rate of the flexible chamber, the inflation control member being disposed within the valve housing and movable with respect to the valve housing.

  • Publication number: 20100045783
    Abstract: Methods and systems for dynamic virtual convergence (218) and a video see through head mountable display (200) that uses dynamic virtual convergence are disclosed. A dynamic virtual convergence algorithm (218) includes sampling an image with two cameras. The cameras each have a field of view that is larger than a field of view of displays used to display images sampled by the cameras (210). A heuristic is used to estimate the gaze distance of the viewer. The display frustums are transformed so that they converge at the estimated gaze distance. The images sampled by the cameras (210) are then reprojected into the transformed display frustums. The reprojected images are displayed to the user to simulate viewing of close range objects.

  • Patent number: 7385708
    Abstract: Laser-based methods and systems for real-time structured light depth extraction are disclosed. A laser light source (100) produces a collimated beam of laser light. A pattern generator (102) generates structured light patterns including a plurality of pixels. The beam of laser light emanating from the laser light source (100) interacts with the patterns to project the patterns onto the object of interest (118). The patterns are reflected from the object of interest (118) and detected using a high-speed, low-resolution detector (106). A broadband light source (111) illuminates the object with broadband/light, and a separate high-resolution, low-speed detector (108) detects broadband light reflected from the object (118). A real-time structured light depth extraction engine/controller (110) based on the transmitted and reflected patterns and the reflected broadband light.

  • Patent number: 6503195
    Abstract: A real-time structured light depth extraction system includes a projector for projecting structured light patterns onto an object of interest. A camera positioned off-axis from the projector samples light reflected from the object synchronously with the projection of structured light patterns and outputs digital signals indicative of the reflected light. An image processor/controller receives the digital signals from the camera and processes the digital signals to extract depth information of the object in real time.
