John D Unger: System for monitoring patient location and data. Siemens Medical Systems, Lawrence C Edelman, October 17, 1995: US05458123 (302 worldwide citation)

A patient monitoring system utilizes a transmitter associated with each patient. The transmitter is worn by a patient and includes sensors operative to monitor vital signs of the patient. The transmitter transmits an allocated RF frequency which is particularly associated with that patient. A series ...

Ming Li: System and method for 3-D medical imaging using 2-D scan data. Siemens Medical Systems, Jeffrey Slusher, December 10, 1996: US05582173 (158 worldwide citation)

A region of tissue is scanned as a series of 2-D frames. The correlation of substantially homogeneous speckle regions in the frames is determined and is compared with a precalibrated speckle correlation-versus-distance function to give an estimate of the distance between the frames. In some applicat ...
