  • Publication number: 20240062371
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided with processing circuitry that receives a phase image acquired at a corresponding cardiac phase, determines, from the received phase image, a mask image of a particular cardiac region, applies both the determined mask image and the phase image to inputs of a trained neural network model to obtain, from outputs of the neural network model, a location probability map. The neural network model is trained with a set of input data and a corresponding set of output data. The input data includes a training mask image and a training phase image, and the output data includes a training location probability map. The processing circuitry calculates, for the cardiac phase, from the determined location probability map output from the trained neural network model, a value of a cardiac motion metric. The determined location probability map specifies a probable location of a cardiac vessel.

  • Patent number: 11908884
    Abstract: An inductive device includes an insulating layer, a lower magnetic layer, and an upper magnetic layer that are formed such that the insulating layer does not separate the lower magnetic layer and the upper magnetic layer at the outer edges or wings of the inductive device. The lower magnetic layer and the upper magnetic layer form a continuous magnetic layer around the insulating layer and the conductors of the inductive device. Magnetic leakage paths are provided by forming openings through the upper magnetic layer. The openings may be formed through the upper magnetic layer by semiconductor processes that have relatively higher precision and accuracy compared to semiconductor processes for forming the insulating layer such as spin coating. This reduces magnetic leakage path variation within the inductive device and from inductive device to inductive device.

  • Patent number: 11909829
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to systems and methods for generating termination notification of an experiment to be presented through a user interface. In some implementation examples, a termination notification system generates a probability value that is valid as of a time period of an experiment at a predetermined point in time based on at least data sample obtained during the time period, predicted sample sizes of each time period of the experiment, or probability values generated prior to the time period. Responsive to determining that the probability value that is valid as of the time period satisfies a threshold value, the termination notification system causes the user interface to present the termination notification that, when selected, causes the experiment to terminate prior to completion of a predicted duration of the experiment.

  • Publication number: 20240056373
    Abstract: Techniques and architecture are described for tracking flows of packets in a network using a packet color marking scheme for obtaining network end-to-end traffic flow metrics in the network. In particular, in configurations, a user may be prompted to specify a site and a virtual private network (VPN) at which to start a trace for packet flows using a coloring marking scheme within the network. Given the VPN and the site, it is possible to monitor interested packet flows and apply metadata, e.g., colors, on flow packets. Remote wide area network (e.g., software defined WAN (SD-WAN)) routers receiving the packets with metadata may automatically trace the same flow and apply the same metadata to a next hop router. Hence, an end-to-end network path may be discovered.
