  • Patent number: 10799294
    Abstract: A method and system to generate an operating room layout plan for a surgical procedure involving a patient and a trajectory of access. A patient model is positioned in a virtual coordinate space representing the operating room, and is rendered, along with the trajectory of access relative to the patient, on a display. The trajectory of access defines a zone of operation in the virtual coordinate space. The planning system receives selection of a navigation camera location in the virtual coordinate space; renders a navigation camera model visually indicating an operative field of view; determines whether the navigation camera has a direct line-of-sight to the zone of operation and, if not, indicates an error; and outputs the operating room layout plan based on the location of the models in the virtual coordinate space.

  • Patent number: 10730241
    Abstract: In one embodiment of the present invention, an escape hole generator creates escapes holes designed to facilitate removal of support and/or unprinted material generated inside enclosed hollows of three-dimensional (3D) digital models during 3D printing. In operation, the escape hole generator identifies a hollow included in the three-dimensional model and then selects optimized locations for escape holes. Notably, the escape hole generator selects the locations to optimize placement heuristics, such as favoring locations closer to the bottom of the 3D model, while satisfying escape hole constraints (e.g., hole size and spacing requirements). The escape hole generator then perforates the hollow at the selected locations with geometries that provide channels from the outer surface of the hollow to the outer surface of the hollow.

  • Patent number: 10657600
    Abstract: In several embodiments, methods, systems, and computer program products for processing digital images captured by a mobile device are disclosed. The techniques include detecting medical documents and/or documents relevant to an insurance claim by defining candidate edge points based on the captured image data and defining four sides of a tetragon based on at least some of the candidate edge points. In the case of an insurance claim process, the techniques also include determining whether the document is relevant to an insurance claim; and in response to determining the document is relevant to the insurance claim, submitting the image data, information extracted from the image data, or both to a remote server for claims processing. The image capture and processing techniques further facilitate processing of medical documents and/or insurance claims with a plurality of additional features that may be used individually or in combination in various embodiments.

  • Patent number: 10650581
    Abstract: A 3D fluid volume generation system obtains a 2D sketch of an outline of a fluid for which the 3D fluid volume is to be generated, and generates a 3D fluid volume that matches the user's sketch. The 3D fluid volume generation system implements a coarse volume generation stage followed by a refinement stage. In the coarse volume generation stage, the 3D fluid volume generation system generates a coarse 3D fluid volume based on the 2D sketch. The coarse 3D fluid volume is referred to as “coarse” because the contour of the coarse 3D fluid volume roughly matches the 2D sketch. In the refinement stage, the coarse 3D fluid volume is refined to better match the 2D sketch, and the 3D fluid volume for the 2D sketch is output.

  • Patent number: 10636220
    Abstract: An exemplary merged reality scene capture system (“system”) generates a transport stream based on video data received from a plurality of capture devices. The transport stream includes a respective video data stream for each capture device, each respective video data stream representing surfaces of a real-world object as the surfaces appear from a vantage point of the capture device. Based on the transport stream, the system generates entity description data representative of the real-world object. The system also generates entity description data representative of a virtual object to be included within a 3D space of a merged reality scene along with the real-world object. Based on the entity description data, the system generates an entity description frame representative of a state of the objects within the 3D space. The system provides the entity description frame to a plurality of 3D rendering engines associated with a content provider system.
