  • Publication number: 20220022804
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to medical imaging and, more particularly, it relates to methods and systems for performing processing of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the brain which may be useful in the diagnosis of cognitive disorders. More specifically, the invention includes methods for processing cortical diffusion data from a region of a subject's brain, comprising determining values for the Axial Columnar Refraction (ACR) using values for AngleR and Axial Diffusivity.

  • Patent number: 9194642
    Abstract: A device comprising an elongated body having at least one aperture through the body, said aperture silhouetting a barrel bushing for a model 1911 handgun. The device fits snugly and allows the device to operate as a bushing wrench. The aperture may have a longer dimension, said longer dimension substantially perpendicular to the long axis of the elongated body so that the aperture is operable to mate with and operate a barrel bushing. Certain embodiments may include additional openings that silhouette barrel bushings for the same or other firearms or recessed regions on the elongated body adjacent to an aperture that further guide and receive the barrel plug when it is released. The recessed regions may include a ramp section and a plug retention section that act to better hold and guide the barrel plug during removal and insertion operations.

  • Publication number: 20140259852
    Abstract: A device comprising an elongated body having at least one aperture through the body, said aperture silhouetting a barrel bushing for a model 1911 handgun by being shaped in substantially the same shape as a barrel bushing, but slightly larger so it fits snugly and allows the device to operate as a bushing wrench. The aperture may have a longer dimension, said longer dimension substantially perpendicular to the elongated axis of the body so that the aperture is operable to mate with and operate a barrel bushing. Certain embodiments may include additional openings that silhouette barrel bushings for the same or other firearms.

  • Publication number: 20060107264
    Abstract: An improved operating system and architecture, particularly useful for aircraft, provides a schedule for multiple tasks that ensures that each task has sufficient execution time and does not interfere with any other tasks. In the operating system, each task is scheduled to a deadline monotonic algorithm. The algorithm creates a schedule for the tasks in which the tasks are time partitioned by task, not by task level. The APIs in the operating system are provided by the services. Thus, changing a service, e.g. because of a change in hardware, is facilitated, since the service will provide the proper API.

  • Publication number: 20050084146
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of mapping a property of a three dimensional object. The method comprises the steps of mapping the property for at least a portion of the object, providing a line or region which defines intersections with part of the mapped portion, and displaying the property for the intersections. The present invention also provides another method of mapping a property of an object. The method comprises the steps of mapping the property for a slice within the object, providing a line within the slice, and displaying the property for the line.

  • Patent number: 4086481
    Abstract: A lamp comprises a lamp unit adjustably secured to a support member which support member is mounted on a vehicle. A nut mounted on the support member and a screw carried by the lamp unit are mutually engaged and provide a fine adjustment of the lamp unit. A spring urges the nut away from the support member and a rotatable cam acts on the nut in opposition to the spring to provide a coarse adjustment of the lamp unit when rotated in use. The cam is connected to a remote control linkage so as to be operable from a position remote from the lamp unit.A novel lamp assembly comprises a pair of lamps of the type described above coupled together so as to be operable synchronously from the said remote position.
