  • Patent number: 10413180
    Abstract: Systems and methods of obtaining and recording fundus images by minimally trained persons, which includes a camera for obtaining images of a fundus of a subject's eye, in combination with mathematical methods to assign real time image quality classification to the images obtained based upon a set of criteria. The classified images will be further processed if the classified images are of sufficient image quality for clinical interpretation by machine-coded and/or human-based methods. Such systems and methods can thus automatically determine whether the quality of a retinal image is sufficient for computer-based eye disease screening. The system integrates global histogram features, textural features, and vessel density, as well as a local non-reference perceptual sharpness metric. A partial least square (PLS) classifier is trained to distinguish low quality images from normal quality images.

  • Patent number: 10379124
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for diagnosing and determining prognosis of colorectal cancer in a subject by detecting suppressed expression of the VSTM2A gene, which in some cases is due to elevated methylation level in the genomic sequence of this gene. A kit and device useful for such a method are also provided. In addition, the present invention provides a method for treating colorectal cancer by increasing VSTM2A gene expression or activity.

  • Publication number: 20190213772
    Abstract: The disclosed computer system may include an input module, an autoencoder, and a rendering module. The input module may receive geometry information and images of a subject. The geometry information may be indicative of variation in geometry of the subject over time. Each image may be associated with a respective viewpoint and may include a view-dependent texture map of the subject. The autoencoder may jointly encode texture information and the geometry information to provide a latent vector. The autoencoder may infer, using the latent vector, an inferred geometry and an inferred view-dependent texture of the subject for a predicted viewpoint. The rendering module may be configured to render a reconstructed image of the subject for the predicted viewpoint using the inferred geometry and the inferred view-dependent texture. Various other systems and methods are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190214533
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes wafer-level processes for fabricating optoelectronic device subassemblies that can be mounted, for example, to a circuit substrate, such as a flexible cable or printed circuit board, and integrated into optoelectronic modules that include one or more optical subassemblies stacked over the optoelectronic device subassembly. The optoelectronic device subassembly can be mounted onto the circuit substrate using solder reflow technology even if the optical subassemblies are composed of materials that are not reflow compatible.

  • Patent number: 7863222
    Abstract: As noted above, certain aspects of this disclosure relate to a library of nucleic acid vectors, as well as a method for making the same. In certain embodiments, the library of nucleic acid vectors comprises: a plurality of nucleic acid molecules of the following formula: S1—R—S2 wherein, in each nucleic acid of the plurality: S1 and S2 are each at least 15 nucleotides in length; S1 and S2 are complementary to each other along their entire length; either S1 or S2 is complementary along its entire length to a sequence in eukaryotic mRNA; and R is a six base recognition site for a restriction endonuclease; and wherein S1 and S2 vary in nucleotide sequence between different members of the plurality. A method for amplifying a circular nucleic acid is also provided.

  • Patent number: 7458120
    Abstract: An inflatable item includes a hollow body and a valve is connected to the hollow body. The valve is a bladder which has an inlet from which air is introduced in the bladder, and an outlet through which the air is introduced into the hollow body. A tubular insertion is engaged with the inlet and has a passage defined therethrough. A bouncing member is mounted to the tubular insertion so that the user compresses the bladder to push the air in the bladder into the hollow body and the bouncing member bounces the bladder back to original status. The hollow body can be inflated by repeatedly compressing the bladder. A cap removably seals the inlet after the inflatable item is inflated.

  • Publication number: 20080256747
    Abstract: A hinge device of a foldable chair. The foldable chair includes a front tube, a middle tube, a rear tube and a foot stand. Three-way hinges each including a first pivoting portion, a second pivoting portion and a third pivoting portion connect the front tube, the middle tube, the rear tube and the foot stands together. The characteristic lies in that the third pivoting portion is shifted from a straight line connecting the first pivoting portion to the second pivoting portion so that the third pivoting portion and the first and second pivoting portions are disposed alternately and all the pivoting portions after being folded form a right-angle arranged pattern. The foot stand is folded on the inner side of the middle tube and arranged in parallel to inner and outer portions of the middle tube.
