  • Patent number: 10761173
    Abstract: A system and method for imaging a subject includes a first imaging pulse sequence having gradient blips along an x-direction and a y-direction to acquire calibration image data from multiple slices. The imaging pulse sequence also includes a plurality of Z-shimming gradient blips coincident in time with the gradient blips along the x- and y-directions and varied within each slice. A plurality of calibration images are reconstructed from the calibration image data and a comparison image is formed by selecting an image from the calibration images corresponding to at least one of the varied Z-shimming gradient blips for each slice to determine a desired value of the Z-shimming gradient blips. The desired values are used to perform a second pulse sequence to acquire clinical image data from the subject. The second pulse sequence is used to acquire clinical images having been compensated for magnetic susceptibility variations within the subject.

  • Patent number: 10137461
    Abstract: A flotation machine includes a stator positioned in a tank adjacent a rotor. The stator has a plurality of vanes. Each of the vanes has a plurality of slots formed therein. Each of the slots has a shape that is elongated in a direction along the width of the vane in which the slot is formed. Each of the vanes is spaced apart from the other vanes to which that vane is adjacent. The vanes are positioned in series adjacent a periphery of the stator to define a central opening within the stator that is sized such that the rotor of a flotation machine may be positioned therein. The stator may be retrofitted onto a prior flotation machine installation. For instance, a stator may be offered for sale and then installed onto a flotation machine. A previous stator may be removed before the installation of the new stator.
