  • Publication number: 20220270762
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for multi-schema analysis of patient specific anatomical features from medical images. The system may receive medical images of a patient and metadata associated with the medical images indicative of a selected pathology, and automatically classify the medical images using a segmentation algorithm. The system may use an anatomical feature identification algorithm to identify one or more patient specific anatomical features within the medical images by exploring an anatomical knowledge dataset. A 3D surface mesh model may be generated representing the one or more classified patient specific anatomical features, such that information may be extracted from the 3D surface mesh model based on the selected pathology. Physiological information associated with the selected pathology for the 3D surface mesh model may be generated based on the extracted information.

    Abstract: In an approach, a processor groups documents into a plurality of groups based on similarity, where: documents of each group have a same document structure; and the document structure is defined by coordinates of text blocks. A processor, for each group of the plurality of groups and for each document of the respective group: retrieves a value of each text block of the respective document in accordance with a document structure of the group; and assigns to each text block of the respective document an attribute that represents the retrieved value of the text block. A processor assigns a first document of the documents to an entity of a database that matches the first document based on the group of text block values and the assigned attributes of the document.

  • Patent number: 11391440
    Abstract: Light-emitting component includes a light source and a dimming element arranged downstream of the light source in a radiation direction. The dimming element includes a dimming layer. The light source includes at least one emitter which is configured to emit light. A brightness of a light emitted by the light-emitting component is adjustable. The brightness is partially adjustable by way of a pulse width modulated and/or amplitude modulated operating signal for the emitter, and the brightness is partially adjustable by way of partial absorption and/or reflection of the light emitted by the emitter in the dimming element. A dimming capability of the dimming layer increases along an extension direction transverse to the radiation direction. The dimming layer is displaceable along the extension direction relative to the light source. A degree of absorption and/or reflection of light emitted by the emitter is variably adjustable.
