  • Patent number: 9815252
    Abstract: Provided is a cardboard conversion line including a wet cyclone dust collector for removing dust laden air from the conversion line. The wet cyclone dust collector has a swirl chamber in which air containing particles swirls in a rotational direction and a plurality of circumferentially spaced nozzles located within the swirl chamber to direct a spray of fluid within the swirl chamber in the rotational direction to wet the air containing particles, and the wetted particles are separated from the air in the swirl chamber. In this way, a system may be provided to clean high volumes of air containing particles without having to provide an explosion vent and without having to provide additional fans, motors, and compressed air.

  • Publication number: 20140156303
    Abstract: A processing system determines a validation status of an examination request for a patient. The examination request includes examination data that defines a clinical condition of the patient. A receipt module receives the examination request via a communication network; a storage module adapted for storing a plurality of predefined clinical definitions, predefined clinical definitions associated with at least one examination type. A matching module conducts a first stage analysis of the content, compares the content with the predefined clinical definitions in order to determine one or more matching definitions. A validation module compares the matching definitions against the match threshold of at least one examination type to determine a validation indicator of the examination request. A response module transmits the validation status of the exam request as an exam response via the communications network.

  • Publication number: 20130132105
    Abstract: A system and method for assigning work studies to be read within a work list are disclosed. In some embodiments, the systems and methods may relate to assigning a radiology work study such as a radiology image study to be read within a radiologist work list associated with at least one radiologist. The assigning of the radiology work study to be read within the radiologist work list may comprise assigning an order to the radiology work studies that are within the radiologist work list. The assigning of the radiology work studies may be based on a service level priority for the radiology work studies.

  • Publication number: 20130132142
    Abstract: A system and method for dynamically reassigning a work study is disclosed. In some embodiments, a radiology work study may be reassigned from a first work list to a second work list. The reassigning of the radiology work study may be based on a rate of progress of a first radiologist associated with the first work list as well as a service level agreement associated with the radiology work study.

  • Publication number: 20130132104
    Abstract: A system and method for generating a work flow are disclosed. In some embodiments, the workflow may be a radiology work flow comprising a plurality of radiology work lists. Radiology work studies may be received and assigned to at least one of the radiology work lists. In some embodiments, the radiology work lists may be based on parameters or characteristics of radiologists. As such, the assigning of the radiology work studies to the radiology work lists may be based on the parameters or characteristics of the radiologists.

  • Publication number: 20090248442
    Abstract: A processing system and/or method for determining a validation status of an examination request for a patient, the examination request having content including a plurality of examination data defining a clinical condition of the patient. The system and/or method can include a receipt module or similar functionality for receiving the examination request via a communication network; a storage or similar functionality adapted for storing a plurality of predefined clinical definitions, each of the plurality of predefined clinical definitions associated with at least one examination type, the at least one examination type having a match threshold including a subset definition set from the plurality of predefined clinical definitions. The system and/or method can include a matching module or similar functionality adapted for conducting a first stage analysis of the content by comparing the content with the plurality of predefined clinical definitions in order to determine one or more matching definitions.

  • Publication number: 20080275913
    Abstract: A system and method for generating statements for use by a user in collecting clinically relevant information about a patient for a selected examination type. The system comprises a storage including a plurality of statements having statement concepts assigned to each of the plurality of statements, the statement concepts being descriptors for defining each of the plurality of statements. The system comprises a receipt module configured for receiving a request having at least one parameter including an exam concept associated with the selected exam type for defining a characteristic of the selected exam type. The system comprises a matching module configured for comparing the exam concept to the statement concepts assigned to each of the plurality of statements, the comparison for selecting matching statements from the plurality of statements having the exam concept, the comparison resulting in a statement set containing the matched statements.

  • Patent number: 7199376
    Abstract: A method of monitoring health in chlorophyll containing matter comprises exposing the matter to a light source to cause chlorophyll to fluoresce and emit a fluorescence signal. Any changes in a parameter indicative of changes in the intensity of the fluorescence signal are detected and compared with a predetermined threshold. A change which exceeds the predetermined threshold is interpreted as a transition of the level of stress in the chlorophyll containing matter. An apparatus for monitoring health in chlorophyll containing matter is also provided and comprises a light source for causing chlorophyll in the matter to fluoresce, a detector for detecting the intensity the fluorescent signal, means for measuring changes in a parameter indicative of changes in the intensity of the fluorescent signal and a detector to detect an increase in the change of the parameter above a predetermined threshold.
