Edouard Bugnion, Scott W Devine, Mendel Rosenblum: System and method for virtualizing computer systems. VMWare, Jeffrey Slusher, December 17, 2002: US06496847 (386 worldwide citation)

A virtual machine monitor (VMM) is included in a computer system that has a protected host operating system (HOS). A virtual machine running at least one application via a virtual operating system is connected to the VMM. Both the HOS and the VMM have separate operating contexts and disjoint address ...

Bettina Experton: System and method for remotely accessing user data records. Humetrix, Jeffrey Slusher, November 30, 1999: US05995965 (178 worldwide citation)

User data records, such as health or financial data, are stored in a data base at one or more remote facilities, for example, at one or more hospitals or one or more central processing facilities. For each of a card-holding group of users a card is provided. The card is preferably a "smart card," wh ...

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 ...

Stig Ollmar: Device for measurement of electrical impedance of organic and biological materials. Centrum for Dentalteknik och Biomaterial, Jeffrey Slusher, October 11, 1994: US05353802 (125 worldwide citation)

A device and method for noninvasive depth-selective detection and characterization of surface phenomena in organic and biological material such as tissues by surface measurement of the electrical impedance of the material. The device includes a probe with a plurality of measuring electrodes separate ...

Swend L Miller, Gary D Ninneman: Universal needle guide for ultrasonic transducers. Siemens Medical Systems, Jeffrey Slusher, June 2, 1998: US05758650 (114 worldwide citation)

A guide for guiding a needle for insertion into a patient during a surgical procedure has a main guide body, a mounting arrangement for attaching the main guide body onto an ultrasound probe, and a needle cap that fits removably onto the needle guide. At least one channel is located between the main ...

Timothy J Hall, Yanning Zhu: Ultrasonic elasticity imaging. University of Kansas Medical Center, Jeffrey Slusher, January 21, 2003: US06508768 (112 worldwide citation)

In an ultrasound imaging system, a displacement vector is estimated for a pattern of samples throughout an imaged region of interest (ROI) by comparing two successive B-mode frames. The displacement vector is preferably estimated using block matching. Once displacement vectors are estimated for samp ...

Lee Weng, Wayne Gueck: System and method for automatic measurement of body structures. Siemens Medical Systems, Jeffrey Slusher, December 31, 1996: US05588435 (108 worldwide citation)

Human body structures, for example, of a fetus, are automatically measured using ultrasound by first using an ultrasonic transducer or prestored ultrasound scan to generate an image frame as a pattern of pixels. Each pixel has a brightness value corresponding to an echo signal from a corresponding p ...

Dong Chyuan Liu: System and method for adaptive filtering of images based on similarity between histograms. Siemens Medical Systems, Jeffrey Slusher, January 14, 1997: US05594807 (98 worldwide citation)

An interrogation region, such as a portion of a patient's body, is imaged as an unfiltered pattern of image elements, to each of which is assigned a numerical value such as brightness. One element is selected either automatically or manually as a reference element, which lies in a substantially homo ...
