  • Publication number: 20220086412
    Abstract: One example method includes obtaining, from an endoscope and between first and second video frames of a real-time video having a frame rate, a preliminary image of a scene during a surgical procedure, the first image comprising a plurality of pixels, wherein the first and second video frames are consecutive video frames in the real-time video; determining, for each pixel of the plurality of pixels, a depth within the scene; determining first image capture parameters for the scene based on a scene illumination setting and a first set of pixels within a first range of depths in the scene; capturing, between the first and second consecutive output video frames, a first image using the first image capture parameters; determining an illumination correction for a second set of pixels at a second range of depths within the scene; capturing, between the first and second consecutive output video frames, a second image using the illumination correction; generating a composite image based on the first and second images;

  • Publication number: 20210370062
    Abstract: An electrical stimulation system includes a stimulator having at least one electrode and a power supply. The electrode is connectable to the power supply, and the power supply delivers electrical stimulation energy in the form of a capacitive discharge voltage through the stimulator and electrode to tissue proximate a target anatomy to induce an observable response in the target anatomy during a medical procedure.

  • Publication number: 20210195081
    Abstract: Methods, endoscopic systems, and non-transitory, machine-readable storage media for adjusting an exposure of an endoscopic system are described. In an embodiment, the methods include emitting light with a light source into a proximal end of an endoscope light pipe; generating received light signals with a photodetector based on light received through the endoscope light pipe by the photodetector; displaying, with a display module, images based on the received light signals having a current image brightness; monitoring the received light signals for changes to the current image brightness; and adjusting a light source illuminance level, and in some embodiments a photodetector gain and exposure time, based on the current image brightness to maintain a target image brightness of the display module. In an embodiment, a brightness adjustment step size is less than a just-noticeable difference in brightness of an eye and is directly proportional to the current image brightness.

  • Publication number: 20180253590
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses for analyzing histopathology images to determine the presence of certain predetermined abnormalities. The system processes histopathology images to identify/highlight regions of interest (e.g., a region that may comprise parts of a tumor, cancerous cells, or other predetermined abnormality) for subsequent review by a pathologist or other trained professional. For example, the system may process histopathology images of H&E-stained lymph node tissue to identify potentially cancerous cells within the histopathology images.
