  • Publication number: 20190259585
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for operating a plasma processing chamber includes performing a plasma process at a process pressure and a pressure power to generate a plasma. A first ramping-down stage starts in which the process power and the process pressure are ramped down substantially simultaneously to an intermediate power level and an intermediate pressure level, respectively. The intermediate power level and intermediate pressure level are preselected so as to raise a plasma sheath boundary above a threshold height from a surface of a substrate. A purge gas is flowed from a showerhead assembly at a sufficiently high rate to sweep away contaminant particles trapped in the plasma such that one or more contaminant particles move outwardly of an edge of the substrate. A second ramping-down stage starts where the intermediate power level and the intermediate pressure level decline to a zero level and a base pressure, respectively.

  • Publication number: 20190251280
    Abstract: A cloud security system and method designed to protect users' data in case of accidental leaks in a cloud computing environment. Secured hashing of the names of folders stored on the cloud data storage are generated and persisted using multiple iterations of cryptographic hash functions along with a concatenated random number for each of the folder names, thereby providing protection against vulnerability of the folder names. The proposed system is a dual-layer framework consisting of a control layer and a data layer. The control layer is responsible for cryptographic hashing and persistence of the folder name, hashed name, salt, and iterations in a database. The control layer communicates with the data layer and provides the hashed folder names to persist the user data cloud storage.

  • Patent number: 10380721
    Abstract: This disclosure covers systems and methods that sharpen the appearance of a digital illustration while moving the digital illustration. In certain embodiments, upon receiving a command to move a digital illustration, the disclosed systems and methods move the digital illustration (and its constituent line segments) to positions that both sharpen the appearance of the digital illustration and respond to the command. To facilitate sharpening the appearance of a digital illustration as part of a seemingly continuous movement, in some embodiments, the disclosed systems and methods move a blurry digital illustration to a position that sharpens the appearance of blurry axial-line segments by translating the digital illustration according to a translation vector and a command to move the digital illustration.

  • Publication number: 20190142358
    Abstract: A method for generating a nuclear image includes obtaining, via a camera, a surface image of a patient. A synthetic computed-tomography (CT) image of the patient is generated based on the surface image. First time-of-flight (TOF) data for the patient is obtained via a nuclear imaging modality. Attenuation correction is applied to the first TOF data. The synthetic image is applied as a density map during the attenuation correction. A nuclear image is generated from the attenuation corrected first TOF data.

  • Publication number: 20190139259
    Abstract: A correspondence between frames of a set of medical image data is determined where the set of medical image data includes at least one frame acquired without contrast medium and at least one frame acquired with contrast medium. First data representing a first image frame acquired without contrast medium is received. Second data representing a second image frame acquired with contrast medium is received. A position of a feature of a medical device in the second image frame is determined at least partly on the basis of a position of the feature determined from the first image frame.

  • Publication number: 20190130603
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are disclosed for determining feature representations of 2.5D image data using deep learning techniques. The 2.5D image data may be synthetic image data generated from 3D simulated model data such as 3D CAD data. The 2.5D image data may be indicative of any number of pose estimations/camera poses representing virtual or actual viewing perspectives of an object modeled by the 3D CAD data. A neural network such as a convolution neural network (CNN) may be trained using the 2.5D image data as training data to obtain corresponding feature representations. The pose estimations/camera poses may be stored in a data repository in association with the corresponding feature representations. The learnt CNN may then be used to determine an input feature representation from an input 2.5D image and index the input feature representation against the data repository to determine matching pose estimation(s).

  • Publication number: 20190057515
    Abstract: Machine learning is used to train a network to predict the location of an internal body marker from surface data. A depth image or other image of the surface of the patient is used to determine the locations of anatomical landmarks. The training may use a loss function that includes a term to limit failure to predict a landmark and/or off-centering of the landmark. The landmarks may then be used to configure medical scanning and/or for diagnosis.

  • Publication number: 20190057521
    Abstract: For topogram predication from surface data, a sensor captures the outside surface of a patient. A generative adversarial network (GAN) generates the topogram representing an interior organ based on the outside surface of the patient. To further adapt to specific patients, internal landmarks are used in the topogram prediction. The topogram generated by one generator of the GAN may be altered based on landmarks generated by another generator.
