  • Publication number: 20200260066
    Abstract: An optical imaging system to image a target object includes a light source configured to emit one or more light rays to illuminate the target object and an image detector configured to capture a three-dimensional topography image of the target object when emitted light is emitted from the target object in response to being illuminated by the light rays emitted by the light source. A fluorescence image detector captures a fluorescence image of the target object when fluorescence is emitted from the target object in response illumination by light rays emitted by the light source. A controller instructs the image detector to capture the 3D topography image and the fluorescence image detector to detect the fluorescence image of the target object intraoperatively and to co-register and simultaneously display intraoperatively the co-registered topography and fluorescence information to the user via a display.

  • Publication number: 20200246493
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of preparing a drug-iodinated oil dispersion by high-pressure dissolution. In the invention, drug molecules are dissolved in and thoroughly mixed with iodinated oil under high pressure and rapid stirring. After the depressurization, the drug molecules are dispersed in the iodinated oil to prepare a uniformly-mixed drug-iodinated oil dispersion. The drug-iodinated oil dispersion prepared herein, compared to the drug-iodinated oil suspension and emulsion, has advantages of controllable morphology, long-term stability and slow drug-releasing rate, moreover, the drug molecules do not negatively affect the iodinated oil in physicochemical properties such as viscosity. In the liver cancer treatment, the prepared drug-iodinated oil dispersion is firstly injected through the hepatic arteries to perform the embolization, and the drug molecules are slowly released for a sustained treatment. The invention provides a good reference for the therapy combined with iodinated oil embolization.

  • Patent number: 10733099
    Abstract: A method to minimize cache pressure using slot pressure profile (SPP)-guided Algorithm includes generating an intermediate SPP from a binary code of a DBMS. The generated intermediate SPP is received and a reference SPP is output. The reference SPP has a value assigned for each cache slot in a cache, whereby a cache slot value is indicative of cache pressure. The reference SPP is accepted and a candidate slot list related to the cache is produced by sorting the values in the reference SPP. A slot number among the candidate slot list is decided and passed to find an open memory address mapping to the decided slot number for a bee code, the bee code being a specialized version of a DBMS function created and loaded into the cache at run-time. A query with the bee code is executed using the open memory address found.

  • Publication number: 20200241203
    Abstract: When routing light on photonic integrated circuit (PIC) chips optical back-reflection and scattering can be highly detrimental to the desired application. Unused ports of optical devices, such as MMI, DC, Y-junction, PD, etc. are a cause for back-reflection and scattering, whereby the scattered light could get picked up by adjacent components, e.g. photodetectors. Management of stray light on the PIC is needed to prevent the undesired coupling between various components and to reduce noise. A dump taper may be used to guide and scatter stray light away from sensitive components or fully absorb the light while maintaining very low reflection from the taper. A doped dump taper may be used to passively absorb light reaching the unused port, thereby eliminating unwanted reflection and scattering. Alternatively, an undoped taper may be used to scatter light away from sensitive components while maintaining very low back-reflection.
