  • Publication number: 20200372637
    Abstract: An exemplary system, method and computer-accessible medium for classifying a tissue(s) of a patient(s) can include, for example, receiving an image(s) of an internal portion(s) of a breast of the patient(s), and automatically classifying the tissue(s) of the breast by applying a neural(s) network to the image(s). The tissue(s) can include a lymph node(s). The lymph node(s) can be classified as a cancerous tissue or a non-cancerous tissue. The tissue(s) can be classified as a fibroglandular tissue or a background parenchymal enhancement tissue. The tissue(s) can be classified as a cancer molecular subtype. The image(s) can be is a magnetic resonance image.

  • Publication number: 20200372636
    Abstract: An exemplary system, method and computer-accessible medium for determining a breast cancer response(s) for a patient(s) can include, for example, receiving an image(s) of an internal portion(s) of a breast of the patient(s), and determining the breast cancer response(s) by applying a neural network(s) to the image(s). The breast cancer response(s) can be a response to at least one chemotherapy treatment. The breast cancer response(s) can include an Oncotype DX recurrence score. The breast cancer response(s) can be a neoadjuvant axillary response. The image(s) can be a magnetic resonance image(s) (MRI). The MRI(s) can include a dynamic contrast enhanced MRI(s).

  • Publication number: 20200364855
    Abstract: An exemplary system, method and computer-accessible medium for classifying a breast tissue(s) a patient(s) can include, for example, receiving an image(s) of an internal portion(s) of a breast of the patient(s), and automatically classifying the breast tissue(s) of the breast by applying a neural network(s) to the image(s). The automatic classification can include a classification as to whether the breast tissue(s) is atypical ductal hyperplasia or ductal carcinoma. The automatic classification can include a classification as to whether the breast tissue(s) is a cancerous tissue or a non-cancerous tissue. The image(s) can be a mammographic image or an optical coherence tomography image.

  • Publication number: 20200321130
    Abstract: An exemplary system, method and computer-accessible medium for determining a risk of developing breast cancer for a patient(s) can include, for example receiving an image(s) of an internal portion(s) of a breast of the patient(s), and determining the risk by applying a neural network(s) to the image(s). The neural network can be a convolutional neural network (CNN). The CNN can include a plurality of layers. Each of the layers can have a different number of feature channels. The CNN can include at least four layers. A first layer of the at least four layers can have 256×256×16 feature channels, a second layer of the at least four layers can have 128×128×32 feature channels, a third layer of the at least four layers can have 64×64×64 feature channels, and a fourth layer of the at least four layers can have 32×32×128 feature channels.

  • Patent number: 10697650
    Abstract: A self-adjusting balance valve controller controls water flow through a hydronic emitter in a heating and/or cooling temperature control system. The valve controller obtains a measured temperature differential between an inlet and an outlet of the hydronic emitter and determines a displacement of a coupling pin from the measured temperature differential. The valve controller then instructs a driving mechanism to move, through a coupling mechanism, the coupling pin to adjust a valve that results in a desired water flow through the hydronic emitter. The valve controller may maintain a stable temperature differential at a desired differential value, which may be obtained through a user interface or from a memory device. Moreover, the desired differential value may vary with different times of operation or temperature control situations.

  • Publication number: 20050248291
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for an amplifier for use with a nonlinear load. In one embodiment, a method is provided for driving a flash lamp. The method comprises providing an amplifier having a resonant reset topology, coupling an output of the amplifier to the flash lamp to provide a pulsed power output to the flash lamp, and driving the amplifier with a controller to provide a pulse width modulation output to the flash lamp. The pulsed output from the amplifier has a period selected to prevent a streamer of said flash lamp from extinguishing during an active use.
