  • Publication number: 20240078659
    Abstract: There is provided a system and method for defect examination on a semiconductor specimen. The method comprises obtaining a runtime image of the semiconductor specimen, generating a reference image based on the runtime image using a machine learning (ML) model, and performing defect examination on the runtime image using the generated reference image. The ML model is previously trained during setup using a training set comprising one or more pairs of training images, each pair including a defective image and a corresponding defect-free image. The training comprises, for each pair, processing the defective image by the ML model to obtain a predicted image, and optimizing the ML model to minimize a difference between the predicted image and the defect-free image.

  • Patent number: 11883149
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are described including a processor (20) configured to receive first and second sets of extraluminal images of a lumen, the second set being acquired while an endoluminal device is being moved through the lumen. The processor designates at least one of the first set of images as a roadmap image, and designates, within the lumen in the roadmap image, a roadmap pathway (42). A plurality of features (44, 46, 48, 50) that are visible within at least some of the second set of extraluminal images are identified, and an arrangement of three or more of the features within the image are compared to a shape of at least a portion of the roadmap pathway. Based upon the comparing, the identified features are mapped to locations along the roadmap pathway within the roadmap image. Other applications are also described.

  • Patent number: 11676272
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are described including, using a computer processor, automatically identifying whether a given pixel within an image corresponds to a portion of an object. A set of concentric circles that are disposed around the pixel are sampled, and a first function is applied to each of the circles such that the circles are defined by a first set of rotationally invariant descriptors. A second function is applied to the set of circles to generate a second set of descriptors, each of which represents a difference between respective pairs of the circles. A third function is applied such that the second set of descriptors becomes rotationally invariant. The processor identifies whether the given pixel corresponds to the portion of the object, based upon the first and second sets of rotationally invariant descriptors. Other applications are also described.

  • Patent number: 11631174
    Abstract: A method for using an assembled three-dimensional image to construct a three-dimensional model for determining a path through a lumen network to a target. The three-dimensional model is automatically registered to an actual location of a probe by tracking and recording the positions of the probe and continually adjusting the registration between the model and a display of the probe position. The registration algorithm becomes dynamic (elastic) as the probe approaches smaller lumens in the periphery of the network where movement has a bigger impact on the registration between the model and the probe display.
