  • Patent number: 11251951
    Abstract: An authentication server may not support all types of user credentials. For example, an on-premise authentication server may support credentials based on user secrets (i.e. username and password) and certificate-based credentials, but not hardware-key based credentials. A client device may use an un-supported type of credential to access resources managed by the on-premise authentication server by authenticating with a web-based authentication server. The web-based authentication server may support any type of credential, and the supported types of credentials may change over time. The web-based authentication server returns an authenticated user token indicating the user has been authenticated, but without authorizing access to any resources. The client device uses the on-premise authentication server to exchange the authenticated user token for an authorized user token. The client device then uses the authorized user token to access resources on the on-premise network.

  • Patent number: 9913941
    Abstract: A fluid path set for a fluid delivery system includes a tube coil that is designed to optimally position one or more volumes of a pharmaceutical within an ionization chamber to measure and prepare a pharmaceutical dose for administration to a patient. Methods for priming at least a portion of the fluid path set include placing a tubing section of the fluid path set in fluid connection with a source of a radiopharmaceutical, and placing the tube coil within a dose calibrator of the fluid delivery system. A volume of the radiopharmaceutical may be pumped through the tube coil, the tubing section, and an additional tubing section, and the dose calibrator may be monitored to determine if a measured activity level is substantially equal to or above a predetermined activity level, and if so, it may be concluded that the tubing section of the fluid path set has been primed.

  • Patent number: 9764118
    Abstract: Medical devices and methods for making and using medical devices are disclosed. An example medical device may include a guide extension catheter. The guide extension catheter may include a push member having a proximal portion with a proximal stiffness, a distal portion with a distal stiffness different from the proximal stiffness, and a transition portion disposed between the proximal portion and the distal portion. The transition portion may provide a smooth transition between the proximal stiffness and the distal stiffness. The push member may have a first outer diameter. A distal tubular member may be attached to the push member. The distal tubular member may have a second outer diameter larger than the first outer diameter.

  • Patent number: 9744023
    Abstract: The disclosure pertains to debris diverters for use within the aorta and methods of diverting or redirecting emboli and other debris away from the carotid arteries to prevent cerebral embolization. The disclosure includes aortic diverters positionable in the ascending aorta in order to divert embolic material of all sizes away from the carotid arteries, thereby washing emboli downstream into the thoracic and peripheral vasculature. The debris diverters of the disclosure are adapted to be placed in the ascending and transverse aorta via the left subclavian artery in order to divert embolic material away from the carotid arteries and methods of use therefor.

  • Patent number: 9118672
    Abstract: A client can communicate with a middle tier, which can then, in turn, communicate with a back end tier to access information and resources on behalf of the client within the context of a system that can scale well. Each individual back end can establish a policy that defines which computing device can delegate to that back end. That policy can be enforced by a domain controller within the same administrative domain as the particular back end. When a middle tier requests to delegate to a back end, the domain controller to which that request was directed can either apply the policy, or, if the domain controller is in a different domain than the targeted back end, it can direct the middle tier to a domain controller in a different domain and can sign relevant information that the middle tier can utilize when communicating with that different domain controller.
