  • Publication number: 20240184465
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to provisioning fault domain sets (FDS). In some embodiments, a computer server system implements an FDS for disseminating a storage service across a plurality of fault domains. To implement the FDS, in some embodiments, the computer server system access FDS data specifying a desired state of the FDS in which the storage service is disseminated across at least a particular number of fault domains. The computer server system may determine available resources of the plurality of fault domains and determine a current state of the FDS based on fault domains that have already been provisioned to the FDS. Based on at least the desired state of the FDS, the current state of the FDS, and the available resources, the computer server system provisions one or more additional fault domains to the FDS to reconcile the FDS's current state with the FDS's desired state.

  • Publication number: 20240185485
    Abstract: A system (CDD) and related method for facilitating an iterative reconstruction operation. In iterative reconstruction, imagery in image domain is reconstructed in plural steps from measured projection data in projection domain. The system and methods use a trained machine learning module (MLM). The system receives input correction data generated in the iterative reconstruction operation. The system predicts, based on the input correction data, output correction data. The output correction data is provided for facilitating correcting a current image, as reconstructed in a given step, into a new image.

  • Patent number: 11976985
    Abstract: The invention relates to a marker device and a tracking system for tracking the marker device, wherein the marker device comprises a rotationally oscillatable magnetic object and wherein the rotational oscillation is excitable by an external magnetic field, i.e. a magnetic field which is generated by a magnetic field providing unit 20, 31 that is located outside of the marker device. The rotational oscillation of the magnetic object induces a current in coils, wherein based on these induced currents the position and optionally also the orientation of the marker device is determined. This wireless kind of tracking can be carried out with relatively small marker devices, which can be placed, for instance, in a guidewire, the marker devices can be read out over a relatively large distance and it is possible to use a single marker device for six degrees of freedom localization.

  • Publication number: 20230419563
    Abstract: A method for use in image reconstruction of CT projection data, which aims at reducing motion artefacts in reconstructed images caused by movement of anatomical bodies. Embodiments are based on mitigating motion artefacts based on restricting the range of data that is used for reconstructing each slice. More particularly, a sub-range of the projection data corresponding to each slice is selected, this sub-range being chosen based on determining one or more sub-windows of visibility of a target anatomical object or event within the projection data sequence. The event may be a particular phase of a movement cycle of the anatomical body. The structure could be a particular portion of the anatomical body which is of interest. Either approach leads to reduction of motion artefacts within a single slice, by restricting the data range, and focusing upon the data which is most relevant clinically.

  • Publication number: 20230419496
    Abstract: A method is provided for processing medical images, the method including receiving a first image and a second image different from the first image, where the second image is of the same subject matter as the first image. The method further includes identifying a plurality of anatomical structures in the first image and defining a plurality of image segments in the second image based N on locations of the anatomical structures identified in the first image. The method then applies a processing routine associated with a first anatomical structure to the first image segment in the second image and a processing routine associated with a second anatomical structure to the second image segment in the second image. Also provided is an imaging system for implementing the described method and a non-transitory computer readable medium storing a program for processing medical images.
