  • Patent number: 10347760
    Abstract: A reconfigurable field effect transistor (RFET) includes a nanowire, wherein the nanowire comprises two Schottky contacts, as well as two gate contacts partially enclosing the nanowire in cross section. An integrated circuit can be produced therefrom. The aim of producing CMOS circuits with enhanced functionality and a more compact design is achieved in that the nanowire is divided along the cross section thereof into two nanowire parts, wherein each nanowire part comprises a respective Schottky contact and a respective gate contact, and the two nanowire parts are connected electrically to one another via a common substrate and stand vertically on the substrate. In a nanowire-parts-array, between the nanowire parts, a respective top-gate contact and/or back-gate contact can be formed in a substrate defining a substrate plane.

  • Patent number: 10334206
    Abstract: A data stream from an internal endpoint of a video conference participant is received at an enterprise media processing node. The internal endpoint is accessible to the enterprise media processing node behind a firewall on an enterprise network. The received data stream is translated and transcoded into a predefined common communication protocol. A data stream in the common communication protocol is received at an external media processing node using a firewall friendly protocol to traverse the firewall from an external endpoint. The external endpoint communicates with the external media processing node outside the enterprise network. A composite data stream of the received data streams from endpoints within the enterprise network and outside the enterprise network is selectively generated, and sent to the internal endpoint.

  • Patent number: 10282846
    Abstract: A method is provided for generating a deformable model (300) for segmenting an anatomical structure in a medical image. The anatomical structure comprises a wall. The deformable model (300) is generated such that it comprises, in addition to two surface meshes (320, 360), an intermediate layer mesh (340) for being applied in-between a first surface layer of the wall and a second surface layer of the wall. In generating the intermediate layer mesh (340), the mesh topology of at least part (400) of the intermediate layer mesh is matched to the mesh topology of one of the surface meshes (320, 360), thereby establishing matching mesh topologies. The deformable model (300), as generated, better matches the composition of such walls, thereby providing a more accurate segmentation.

  • Publication number: 20190096118
    Abstract: The invention provides a ‘model-based’ imaging system in which surface values to be applied to a segmented surface of an imaged body are determined on the basis of projections cast into the volume of the imaged body, the projections made at angles and depths determined on the basis of information encoded within an anatomical model. In examples, the angles and depths are determined on the basis of a comprehensive segmentation of the imaged body, itself performed on the basis of the anatomical model. By locally varying projection angles and depths around the body, in dependence upon local anatomical context, improved imaging of the internal structure of the imaged body may be achieved. In particular, images may be generated providing representations of the internal structure which are of greater clinical utility or relevance. 4D data sets may also be better handled, through use of anatomical context to maintain consistency in representations across multiple frames.

  • Publication number: 20190049598
    Abstract: A device and method for reading an exposed imaging plate generate read-out light and utilize a deflection unit to direct the read-out light in a scanning movement over the imaging plate. The deflection unit has a micromirror to deflect impinging read-out light towards the imaging plate. The micromirror can swivel about a first swivel axis and about a second swivel axis distinct from the first. A detector unit detects fluorescent light emitted from the imaging plate at locations where the read-out light impinges. An evaluating unit evaluates signals received from the detector unit and builds up an image that is stored in the imaging plate. The evaluating unit takes into account, when evaluating the signals received from the detector unit, that points on the imaging plate are subjected to the read-out light variably often and/or for variable time lengths while the micromirror oscillates about the first and the second swivel axis.
