  • Patent number: 10453569
    Abstract: A computer aided diagnostic system and automated method to classify a kidney. Image data for a medical scan that includes image data of a kidney may be received. The kidney image data may be segmented from other image data of the medical scan. One or more iso-contours may be registered for the kidney image data, and renal cortex image data may be segmented from the kidney image data based on the one or more registered iso-contours. The kidney may be classified by analyzing one or more features determined from the segmented renal cortex image data using a learned model associated with the one or more features.

  • Patent number: 10429067
    Abstract: A system and method for recycling flare gas back to a processing facility that selectively employs different numbers of ejector legs depending on the flare gas flowrate. The ejector legs include ejectors piped in parallel, each ejector has a flare gas inlet and a motive fluid inlet. Valves are disposed in piping upstream of the flare gas and motive fluid inlets on the ejectors, and that are selectively opened or closed to allow flow through the ejectors. The flowrate of the flare gas is monitored and distributed to a controller, which is programmed to calculate the required number of ejector legs to accommodate the amount of flare gas. The controller is also programmed to direct signals to actuators attached to the valves, that open or close the valves, to change the capacity of the ejector legs so they can handle changing flowrates of the flare gas.
