Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SYRINGE FLUID FILL VERIFICATION AND IMAGE RECOGNITION OF POWER INJECTOR SYSTEM FEATURES
Abstract:
A fluid injection system and a fluid verification system for confirming that a syringe, containing a fluid for injection, is fully filled with fluid and neither has free space (i.e., air) near the distal end thereof when the syringe is provided in an upright position nor contains air bubbles. Imaging processing techniques and systems are also provided to determine various injection parameters and to verify the type and certain properties of fluid that is present within a syringe.
