  • Patent number: 10660705
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided in which local tissue diagnostic measurements are correlated with archival local tissue diagnostic data from prior tissue analyses to supplement diagnostic measurements with tissue analysis data from prior tissue analyses having similar local tissue diagnostic data. The tissue analysis data may include information such as pathology data, outcome data, and diagnosis data. The archived local tissue diagnostic data and the tissue analysis data may be stored in a database, and employed for a wide variety of methods, involving preoperative, intraoperative, and/or postoperative phases of a medical procedure. Methods and systems are also provided for displaying, on a medical image shown in a user interface, hyperlinked reference markers associated with tissue analyses, where the reference markers are shown at locations corresponding to local tissue analyses, and where associated diagnostic data and/or tissue analysis may be viewed by selecting a given reference marker.

  • Publication number: 20070221133
    Abstract: A hummingbird feeder includes a solar panel power source for illuminating a reservoir of liquid hummingbird food so that the hummingbird can find it at night. The solar panel itself preferably hangs below the feeder in a flexible manner so that it can collect the maximum amount of sunlight and swing in the breeze. An LED attached to the solar power source is positioned to illuminate the liquid reservoir from within the reservoir. The parts that comprise the feeder are easily disassembled for washing and cleaning.

  • Publication number: 20060227542
    Abstract: A solar-powered gazing globe. A removable base is attached to the glazing globe by a stretchable, waterproof flange that also provides a water resistant seal while allowing the globe to sit in an existing support. The gazing globe further includes a rechargeable electrical power source coupled to an electrical charging system. The electrical charging system is in turn connected to a solar energy system that includes a system for collecting solar energy, a system for converting the solar energy into electrical energy, and a system for transferring the electrical energy to the charging system. A light source attached to the removable base is electrically coupled to the rechargeable electrical power source and situated so that light is emitted from the gazing globe via the light transmitting region.

  • Publication number: 20060176684
    Abstract: An outdoor light device having a light transmitting housing portion and weather-proofingly containing a solar energy converting device. The device may also weather-proofingly contain a light-emitting element and a rechargeable electrical power source. The solar energy converting device may be located adjacent to a closed upper end of a light transmitting portion of the housing. There may also be a lid portion, having an aperture, configured to fit snugly over the closed upper end, such that light is able to pass through the closed upper end of the housing portion and fall on the solar panel. The outdoor light device may be made modular by including a removable, operative components module that is receivable in and separable from the housing portion of the light device. The operative components module may contain the light emitting element, solar power converting device and be capable of receiving the rechargeable electrical power source.

  • Publication number: 20060164252
    Abstract: An illuminated wind indicator that provides visual indication of wind motion even at night. One or more chime members and a pendulum assembly are suspended from a support or housing, and arranged so that the chime members and the pendulum assembly are capable of colliding with each other. In addition, there is a light source situated such that a portion of the pendulum assembly emits light. Power for the light source is provided by a solar cell and a rechargeable battery. A light sensor may be used to automatically detect the ambient light and switch the rechargeable battery from accumulating charge to powering the light when predetermined levels of ambient light are detected. The light source may be a suitable light emitting diode. The pendulum assembly may contain the solar panel. The light source may include a luminescent material.
