20110193882TECHNIQUES FOR 3-D ELASTIC SPATIAL REGISTRATION OF MULTIPLE MODES OF MEASURING A BODY - Techniques for registration of multiple measurement modes of a body include receiving first and second data from different modes. Each includes measured values with coordinate values. For two mechanically aligned modes, any non-rigid registration is performed. For some modes, the non-rigid registration includes a coarse transformation and multiple fine scale transformations. The coarse transformation maximizes a coarse similarity measure. The second data is sub-divided into contiguous sub-regions. Fine transformations are determined between the sub-regions and corresponding portions of the first data to maximize a fine similarity measure. Sub-dividing and determining fine transformations repeats until stop conditions are satisfied. Transformations between the last-divided sub-regions are interpolated. Any of the fine similarity measure, a search region, interpolation method, subdivision location, and the use of rigid or non-rigid fine transformations are adaptive to properties of the first or second data so that the registration is automatic without human intervention.08-11-2011
20110249029System for Manipulating a Detected Object within an Angiographic X-ray Acquisition - A medical image viewing system comprises an image data processor. The image data processor automatically identifies movement of a particular object within a first image of a sequence of images, relative to the corresponding particular object in a different reference image in the sequence of images. The image data processor automatically determines a transform to apply to data representing the first image to keep the particular object appearing substantially stationary in the first image relative to the corresponding particular object in the reference image, in response to the identified movement. The image data processor stores data, representing the determined transform and associating the determined transform with the first image. A user interface applies the transform acquired from storage to data representing the first image to present the first image in a display showing the particular object substantially stationary relative to the reference image, in response to a user command.10-13-2011

However, manual segmentation is time consuming and can introduce inter and intra-operator variability. This present invention describes an algorithm for segmenting the prostate from two dimensional ultrasound (2D US) images, which can be full-automatic, with some assumptions of image acquisition. Segmentation begins with the user assuming the center of the prostate to be at the center of the image for the fully-automatic version. The image is then filtered to identify prostate edge candidates. The next step removes most of the false edges and keeps as many true edges as possible. Then, domain knowledge is used to remove any prostate boundary candidates that are probably false edge pixels. The image is then scanned along radial lines and only the first-detected boundary candidates are kept the final step includes the removal of some remaining false edge pixels by fitting a polynomial to the image points and removing the point with the maximum distance from the fit. The resulting candidate edges form an initial model that is then deformed using the Discrete Dynamic Contour (DDC) model to obtain a closed contour of the prostate boundary.06-03-2010

Optionally, the multiple subsets may be rendered in alignment with corresponding portions of a hierarchical depiction, e.g., to visually represent the parameters of the subsets.08-01-2013
20130194295SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CHOOSING DISPLAY MODES - This disclosure provides apparatus, systems, and methods for updating display devices. In one aspect, a display can switch between a plurality of display modes based at least in part on a spatial distribution of changed image regions over a number of frames of an image to be displayed.08-01-2013
20130194296DISPLAY APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR PROVIDING MULTI-VIEW THEREOF - A display apparatus and a multi-view providing method are provided. The display apparatus includes a signal processing unit for constructing an image frame of first image content; a display unit for displaying the image frame on a screen; a user command input unit for receiving a user input of a multi-view mode start command; and a control unit for, when the multi-view mode start command is received, displaying second image content by generating a sub-screen in the screen, and when the second image content displayed in the sub-screen is selected, controlling the signal processing unit and the display unit to operate in a multi-view mode in which a plurality of content views are displayed by combining an image frame of the first image content and an image frame of the second image content.08-01-2013
20130201208ICON DISPLAY METHOD FOR A PULL-OUT DISPLAY DEVICE - A display device that incorporates a supplemental display screen that is stored within a main body of the display device must be able to transition objects displayed on a main display to a supplemental display. As the supplemental display is pulled out from storage within the main body of the display device, objects that were displayed on the main display may be transitioned onto the supplemental display. Various methods for transitioning the display of objects on the main display to the supplemental display are discussed, where methods may take into account the length of the supplemental display that is pulled out from storage and also touch input contacts that are made on either one of the displays.08-08-2013
20130207997Preview cursor for image editing - Methods and systems, including computer program products, implementing a preview cursor for image editing. One method includes displaying an image, receiving user input moving a cursor representing an editing tool to a position on the image, and in response, displaying a cursor icon representing the cursor at the position. The editing tool is operable to have an effect when applied. The cursor icon shows the effect of applying the editing tool at the position while and only while the cursor is at the position.08-15-2013
20130207999IMAGE DISPLAY DEVICE, IMAGE LIST DISPLAY METHOD - To display an image list stored in a memory with good visibility and to display the image list at a high speed, an image display device reads an image file in an Exif format, extracts a thumbnail image included in the image file in the Exif format, and generates a displayed image having a predetermined size and a square shape, thus displaying it in the image list. It is possible to improve visibility in displaying the image file aligning square-shaped displayed image having the same size while precluding blanks. It is possible to perform high-speed processing in producing an image list using thumbnail images included in image files in the Exif format.08-15-2013
