System for the improved imaging of eye structures
A system for the improved imaging of eye structures based on optical coherence tomography. The system includes an interferometric measuring arrangement, which has an optical element arranged in the measurement arm or reference arm for influencing the polarization state of the light before the light is interferometrically superimposed, a scanning unit arranged in the measurement arm for implementing oct scans, a detector for recording the produced interference pattern, and an evaluating and documenting unit.

Method of and system for displaying product related information at pos-based retail checkout systems
A bi-optical code symbol reading system including a system housing having a vertical housing section with a vertical window and a horizontal housing section with a horizontal window adjacent the vertical scanning window; and a digital video display subsystem, disposed within the vertical section of the system housing, and supporting the display of digital images in substantially the same plane as the vertical window during system operation. The digital images displayed by digital video display subsystem can be video images captured by an integrated digital imaging code symbol reading subsystem, to assist the operator in aligning code symbols during scanning operations.

Normalization of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measurements made by time domain-optical coherence tomography
A scan location matching (slm) method identifies conventional time domain optical coherence tomography (td-oct) circle scan locations within three-dimensional spectral domain oct scan volumes. A technique uses both the slm algorithm and a mathematical retinal nerve fiber bundle distribution (rnfbd) model, which is a simplified version of the anatomical retinal axon bundle distribution pattern, to normalize td-oct thickness measurements for the retinal nerve fiber layer (rnfl) of an off-centered td-oct circle scan to a virtual location, centered on the optic nerve head.

Display device and driving method thereof
In an organic light emitting diode display, a plurality of sub-pixels sharing a select scan line that extends in a row direction forms a unit pixel, and the plurality of sub-pixels are arranged in a column direction in the unit pixel. A field is divided into a plurality of subfields, and corresponding one of the plurality of sub-pixels emits light in each of the plurality of subfields..

Vertical imaging of an upright patient
A ct scanning system for patients is provided comprising a nonrotating x-ray source and detector array bracketing a turntable on which stands or sits the patient that is being imaged. As the patient rotates between the x-ray source and the detector array that move along the vertical axis in tandem for each angular position of the patient, imaging data is collected of the patient from multiple angles at multiple levels that are reconstructed to form computed tomographic images that cover the entire region of interest..

Method for estimating effective atomic number and bulk density of rock samples using dual energy x-ray computed tomographic imaging
A method for estimating effective atomic number and bulk density of objects, such as rock samples or well cores, using x-ray computed tomographic imaging techniques is provided. The method effectively compensates for errors in the interpretation of ct scan data and produces bulk densities which have lower residual error compared to actual bulk densities and produces bulk density—effective atomic number trends which are consistent with physical observations..
