  • Publication number: 20240153037
    Abstract: A method and system for correcting a difference in contrast agent density in a sequence of contrast-enhanced image frames. A reference image frame is defined in the sequence of contrast-enhanced image frames, and segmentation is performed on the reference image frame to determine a location of a region of interest within the reference image frame. The region of interest is a region of the reference image frame that contains contrast agent. Other image frames in the sequence of contrast-enhanced images are corrected based on a difference in contrast agent density/image intensity in the region of interest relative to the region of interest in the reference image frame.

  • Patent number: 11976996
    Abstract: A micromechanical component for a capacitive pressure sensor device, including a diaphragm that is stretched with the aid of a frame structure in such a way that a cantilevered area of the diaphragm spans a framed partial surface, and including a reinforcement structure that is formed at the cantilevered area. A first spatial direction oriented in parallel to the framed partial surface is definable in which the cantilevered area has a minimal extension, and a second spatial direction oriented in parallel to the framed partial surface and oriented perpendicularly with respect to the first spatial direction is definable in which the cantilevered area has a greater extension. The reinforcement structure is present at a first distance from the frame structure in the first spatial direction, and at a second distance in the second spatial direction, the second distance being greater than the first distance.

  • Publication number: 20240127432
    Abstract: A system and method for achieving more accurate results when applying an image processing task to a series of medical images of a patient, without significantly increasing processing resource. The proposed system and method is based on receiving a plurality of image sequences of a particular anatomical region, each capturing cyclical movement of an anatomical object. Each image sequence is supplied to a classifier module which employs use of one or more machine learning algorithms to derive at least one score for each image sequence indicative of predicted success or quality of a result of the image processing task if applied to the given image series. This permits an assessment to be made in advance of which of the plurality of image series is most likely to result in the best (e.g. highest quality, or greatest amount of information) results from the image processing task.

An energy tracking system comprises at least one switching element, at least one inductor and a control block to keep the output voltage at a pre-selected level. The switching elements are configured to apply the source of energy to the inductors. The control block compares the output voltage of the energy tracking system to a reference value and controls the switching of the switched elements in order to transfer energy for the primary voltage into a secondary voltage at the output of the energy tracking system. The electronic device further comprises an ON-time and OFF-time generator and an accumulator wherein the control block is coupled to receive a signal from the ON-time and OFF-time generator and generates switching signals for the at least one switching element in the form of ON-time pulses with a constant width ON-time.

  • Publication number: 20230408447
    Abstract: Multi-dimensional Rydberg fingerprint spectroscopy can be used for chemical sensing in gaseous mixtures. A pulsed laser beam having a first wavelength can be delivered to a sample using a tunable pulsed excitation laser; and a pulsed laser beam having a second wavelength can be delivered to the sample point using a tunable pulsed transition laser. The pulsed laser beam having the first wavelength and the pulsed laser beam having the second wavelength have energy sufficient to excite an electron of a sample molecule to a Rydberg state. A level of ionization or light absorption can be detected at the sample point. The level of ionization or light absorption detected and the first and second wavelengths are used to determine the presence and identity of one or more chemicals in the sample of the gaseous mixture.

  • Patent number: 11342146
    Abstract: A system and method for monitoring energy use in an electronic device. In one embodiment, an energy monitoring system includes a processor and an energy monitor module. The energy monitor module includes instructions that when executed cause the processor to receive values of measured parameters of a pulse signal that controls the switching of energy to an energy storage device in a switch mode power supply that provides power to an electronic device. The instructions also cause the processor to determine, based on the values of measured parameters, attributes of operation of the electronic device powered by the energy source during an interval corresponding to the measured parameters. The instructions further cause the processor to generate, based on the attributes of operation, a control signal that causes the electronic device to change the loading of the power supply by the electronic device.
