  • Publication number: 20190209097
    Abstract: The present disclosure a system and methods for early diagnosis of neurodevelopmental or neurobehavioral diseases, such as autism spectrum disorders (“ASD”). In one aspect, a method for determining a risk for a neonatal patient to develop as ASD is provided. The method includes coupling a sensor assembly comprising plurality of electroencephalogram (“EEG”) sensors to a neonatal patient, and acquiring, using the sensor assembly, EEG data during a sleep state of the neonatal patient. The method also includes analyzing the EEG data to determine neural signatures indicative of a brain activity of the neonatal patient during the sleep state, and generating, based on the neural signatures, a composite representing a neurofunctional profile of the neonatal patient. The method further includes determining a risk for the neonatal patient to develop an autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”) by comparing the composite to a reference, and generating a report indicating the risk.

  • Publication number: 20190168015
    Abstract: A system and method for light stimulation within a medium. The system has a reduced-voltage x-ray source configured to generate x-rays from a peak applied cathode voltage at or below 105 kVp, and a plurality of energy-emitting particles in the medium which, upon radiation from the x-ray source, radiate at a first lower energy than the x-ray source to interact witht least one photoactivatable agent in the medium. The method introduces the plurality of energy-emitting particles into the medium, radiates the energy-emitting particles in the medium with x-rays generated from a peak applied cathode voltage at or below 105 kVp; and emits a lower energy than the x-ray source to interact with the medium or with at least one photoactivatable agent in the medium.

  • Patent number: 9649832
    Abstract: A polymerizable composition includes at least one monomer, a photoinitiator capable of initiating polymerization of the monomer when exposed to light, and a phosphor capable of producing light when exposed to radiation (typically X-rays). The material is particularly suitable for bonding components at ambient temperature in situations where the bond joint is not accessible to an external light source. An associated method includes: placing a polymerizable adhesive composition, including a photoinitiator and energy converting material, such as a down-converting phosphor, in contact with at least two components to be bonded to form an assembly; and, irradiating the assembly with radiation at a first wavelength, capable of conversion (down-conversion by the phosphor) to a second wavelength capable of activating the photoinitiator, to prepare items such as inkjet cartridges, wafer-to-wafer assemblies, semiconductors, integrated circuits, and the like.

  • Patent number: 9088645
    Abstract: A method, system, and program for intermediary device initiated caller identification are provided. A trusted telephone network detects a call initiation connection from an origin device. The trusted telephone network then brokers a connection between the origin device and an external server enabled to perform a caller identity authentication service. A voice utterance for a caller is received at the external server from the origin device. The server authenticates a caller identity associated with the voice utterance and transfer the authenticated caller identity to the trusted telephone network. The trusted telephone network then specifies services available for the call according to a caller profile for the authenticated caller identity.
