SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF IMAGES IN A PET SCAN

University of Manitoba

Systems, devices and methods of reconstructing an image from a positron emission tomography scan that may include detecting a plurality of photons selected from scattered photons and unscattered photons by a plurality of detectors, identifying a time interval for each of the plurality of photons by a processing device, matching each of the plurality of photons into a plurality of pairs of coincident photons based upon a substantially simultaneous time interval identified by the processing...

METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR COOPERATIVE STOCHASTIC POSITIONING IN A MOBILE ENVIRONMENT

University of Regina

Cooperative stochastic positioning in a mobile environment is provided. Position announcements transmitted wirelessly from objects in the immediate area are received at an object of interest or primary object. The position announcements provide the current position data of the respective object in relation to a common coordinate system. The received position announcements are discretizing to obtain a plurality of data groupings based upon a clustering criteria applied to the received...

SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INTRAOPERATIVE CHARACTERIZATION OF BRAIN FUNCTION USING INPUT FROM A TOUCH PANEL DEVICE

St. Michael's Hospital, SUNNYBROOK RESEARCH INSTITUTE

Systems and methods are provided for performing an intraoperative assessment of brain function based on input that is obtained using a touch panel device, in response to a task, and in the presence of an intervention that is applied to a selected region of the brain. The intervention may be stimulation of the selected region of the brain, such as direct cortical stimulation. In some embodiments, a measure is determined based on the input received from the touch panel. The measure may be a...
