Stemming reduces inflected words to their stem or root form.
For example the words fishing, fished,fish, and fisher are reduced to the root word,fish,
so a search for fisher returns all the different variations
Returns only one member of a family of patents

The steps of the method are: providing a generator adapted to produce specific wavelengths to maximize light emissions; providing a scintillator in operative proximity to the generator, the scintillator having an associated scintillator screen of a specific phosphor or other excitive type sensitive to various wavelengths, the scintillator being sensitive to a wavelength that maximizes light emissions; positioning a patient to be diagnosed between the generator and the scintillator; emitting a specific wavelength from the generator to and through the patient onto the scintillator screen whereby the associated scintillator screen will light up and sparkle to produce a light image of the patient; providing a camera in operative proximity to the scintillator screen to record the light image produced on the scintillator screen; providing a computer with a computer screen and software; capturing and analyzing the recorded light images from the camera; and obtaining a diagnosis for treatment of the patient.

An approach to noninvasively, remotely and accurately detect core body temperature in a warm-blooded subject (20), human or animal, via thermal imaging. Preferred features such as the use of in-frame references (12, 14, 16), specific anatomical target regions and a physiological heat transfer model help the present invention to overcome pitfalls inherent with existing thermal imaging techniques applied to physiological screening applications. This invention provides the ability to non-invasively, remotely and rapidly screen for diseases or conditions that are characterized by changes in core body temperature.

A COVID-19 Symptoms Alert Machine (CSAM) scanner, or apparatus, is described herein. This apparatus employs Artificial Intelligent (AI) technology in combination with the latest mobile device technology (viz. smart phone/smart watch) to quickly help track down people who have COVID-19 symptoms anywhere and anytime, isolate them, and professionally handle them, not allowing SARS-CoV-2 virus to spread. CSAM automatically measures body temperature and assesses lung conditions such as pulmonary fibrosis and B-lines (for asymptomatic people), and other current health vital information (CHVI), furnished by the participant, such as fever, sore throat, headache, and body ache to generate an alert signal when COVID-19 symptoms are found significant and to send it out to a COVID-19 control center. The alerted participant is then immediately required to go to the COVID-19 control center or be picked up by a special COVID-19 emergency vehicle for isolation and further evaluation and testing. If the testing turns out to be COVID-19 positive, the participant will be quarantined and treated appropriately according to COVID-19 protocol until he/she is tested COVID-19 negative. In the meantime, people who have been in close physical contact with this participant will be alerted and requested to be immediately checked for COVID-19 symptoms. If anyone is found to have COVID-19 symptoms, then he/she must go through the same protocol. The process is repeated until all people in the cluster are tested COVID-19 negative. This will ensure that SARS-CoV-2 virus for this cluster has been completely eliminated. A rapid deployment of this type of apparatus throughout communities where people tend to congregate such as superstores, supermarkets, and any other establishments, small or large, can help to contain the rapid spread of the disease, as well as to give more confidence to the general public. People, who pass through this apparatus without an alert signal, should feel more confident in carrying out their activities, though social distancing and other COVID-19 precautionary requirements should still be maintained. The concept can be further expanded to cover shopping malls, concert halls, sports arenas, and any other large events including highways and freeways with the help of mobile phone technologies, transponders, and other mobile devices. By working on the 0.6% (around 2 million infected people in the US as of June 2020) quickly and effectively, instead of on the 99.4% (330 million, the remaining population) by locking people at home and closing down all businesses and activities; we can save a significant amount of money and hassles. (A long lockdown can also lead to a collapse of our economy and can consequently lead to a worldwide calamity.) In this way the 99.4% will not be burdened with the virus problem and can live normally without having to take any test. It is probably the only effective approach in solving the COVID-19 problem at the moment because vaccines and known COVID-19 cures are not yet available. Even if SARS-CoV-2 vaccines are available presently, they may not be practical to implement economically and operationally in time to contain the virus worldwide due to the massive amount of people (viz. over 7 billion).

The invention discloses a COVID-19 disease progression evaluation method and device based on chest CT. The method comprises the following steps: carrying out subjective scoring and manual focus sketching of a chest CT image of a COVID-19 patient, and constructing a COVID-19 disease progression CT image data set; preprocessing the chest CT image of the COVID-19 patient, the preprocessing includingautomatic lung segmentation, longitudinal registration and slice fusion, and multiplying the fused slice image by the drawn focus image to obtain a fused focus image; carrying out variance measurementand Chebyshev moment energy measurement of the gradient image on the fused lesion image to obtain a variance measurement value and a Chebyshev moment energy measurement value; normalizing the variance measurement value into the Chebyshev moment energy measurement value of the gradient image to obtain a disease progress objective score; and carrying out consistency measurement on the subjective score of the imaging doctor and the objective score of disease progression. According to the method, the disease progression can be automatically evaluated according to the chest CT of the COVID-19 patient, and the evaluation result has good consistency with the score of a radiologist.

An earphone-type physiological function detecting system is provided in the present invention. In which, a detecting sensor module is disposed on a detecting unit, so that the detecting sensor module of the detecting unit is able to detect various the physiological function, such as the body temperature, the blood pressure, the heartbeat, the blood sugar of the user when the user wears the detecting unit in the ear. Further, the detecting unit transmits the detected physiological function signals to the devices, such as the mobile phone, the MP3 walkman, the CD walkman, and the radio for displaying. When the detected signals exceed the standard values, the physiological function detecting system rings as an alarm, stores the detected signals in a memory module, transmits the detected signals to the far end for displaying, and records the daily detected values.

A modulated x-ray system and method provide various applications to increase medical diagnoses and treatment as well as non-medical scenarios. At low energy levels, it is used as a sophisticated medical diagnosis tool, localizing and imaging a variety of biological systems and conditions for further characterization, rather than for destruction. As a therapeutic device, it is used for directed treatment of infectious diseases, treatment of general medical diseases such as atherosclerosis and autoimmune diseases, and genetic therapy. In one embodiment, eliminating unwanted tissue anywhere in the body, effectively allows non-invasive surgery. In another embodiment, selective destruction/activation of specific cells allows for regeneration of cells and tissues, such as spinal cord regeneration.
