  • Patent number: 10453561
    Abstract: Generally, the present disclosure is directed to displaying patient medical data in a multi-modality medical processing system. The method and system described herein present medical data in multiple different modalities on a single user interface screen, allowing a practitioner viewing the user interface to manage all acquired data sets associated with a patient regardless of modality. As such, the amount of time a practitioner must spend reviewing patient medical data is reduced, leading to more efficient diagnosis and treatment. Further, multiple patient cases corresponding to different patients may be presented on a single user interface screen to simplify multi-patient case management.

  • Publication number: 20190303532
    Abstract: A mechanism is disclosed for reconstructing trimmed surfaces whose underlying spline surfaces intersect in model space, so that the reconstructed version of each original trimmed surface is geometrically close to the original trimmed surface, and so that the boundary of each respective reconstructed version includes a model space trim curve that approximates the geometric intersection of the underlying spline surfaces. Thus, the reconstructed versions will meet in a continuous fashion along the model space curve. The mechanism may operate on already trimmed surfaces such as may be available in a boundary representation object model, or, on spline surfaces that are to be trimmed, e.g., as part of a Boolean operation in a computer-aided design system.

  • Patent number: 10395327
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices are described related to the assignment and management of patient-specific bins. A dispensing device at a healthcare facility includes a number of bins for storage of medical supplies, with some of the bins designated as patient-specific bins allocated to be assigned to patients for storage of their medications or certain other supplies. A central server computer system, in communication with a computer of the dispensing device, may monitor and assign current and future patient-specific use of the bins for the dispensing device. The assignment and management of patient-specific bins may be performed by devices distributed through the system.

  • Patent number: 10364953
    Abstract: A solar-powered lantern uses light-emitting diodes to simulate an old-fashioned Edison-type bulb. The lantern comprises a housing having an upper edge defining an upper surface, a lower edge defining a lower surface, and a sidewall between the upper and lower edges. The lower edge of the housing transitions into a shade portion that extends downwardly from the housing. In the preferred embodiment the housing is cylindrical, and the shade is a conical shade having an upper edge coinciding with the lower edge of the housing. A light bulb also extends downwardly from the lower surface of the housing, and the light bulb is surrounded by a cage. A solar panel is disposed on the upper surface of the housing. A rechargeable battery is disposed in the housing, and the rechargeable battery is recharged with electrical energy generated by the solar panel.

  • Patent number: 9657909
    Abstract: A light source causes hollow objects to glow in the dark (GID), thereby extending the operating period of light-activated materials in gazing globes and other decorative or ornamental objects. The light source may be provided as part of a conversion kit, enabling objects from different manufacturers to be converted to GID objects following purchase. A base unit includes the light emitter supported to illuminate the object from the inside out. The base unit further includes at least one solar panel facing into the interior of the object, and one or more batteries charged by the solar panel to power the light emitter. A device is used to couple the base unit to the rim of the object. In the preferred embodiment, the device for coupling the base unit to the rim of the object is an elastomeric ring that stretches over the rim of the object, thereby forming a seal.

  • Patent number: 9410693
    Abstract: Decorator balls are illuminated from the inside-out using a self-contained, battery-powered LED module. The decorator ball itself is made from one or more elongated elements creating a hollow form with gaps or apertures in areas where the elements do not overlap. The module has a battery powered light-emitting diode (LED) and a solar panel to charge the battery. The module is coupled to the decorator ball such that the LED illuminates the decorator ball from the inside-out. White LEDs, LEDs of a particular color, or color-changing LEDs may be used. Either the solar panel or an additional photodetector may communicate with electronic circuitry within the module to activate the LED when ambient light falls below a predetermined level. The module may include a hanger for hanging the decorative article, and a reflector may be provided within the decorator ball to diverge and disperse the light from the LED.
