The program can be used to track the condition of those who suffers from cardiovascular and neurodegenerative conditions.

2. Related art description

The current cardiovascular exams includeblood draw electrocardiogram, ultrasound nuclear medicine myocardial perfusion computed tomography, and cardiac catheterization. In this procedure, blood draws typically measure cholesterol and blood sugar while cardiac ultrasound mostly observes the structure of the heart and the state of motion. However, because coronary arteries aren’t obvious, it is sometimes difficult to determine if there is blockage. however, although the 90% the accuracy of myocardial perfusion in nuclear medicine is greater than about 70% in the accuracy of electrocardiograms during exercise however, there is a risk with radioactivity and the long inspection times; the two-step exam of computed tomography as well as cardiac catheterization are because of the health insurance implications and invasive examination only used to diagnose the condition.

The identification of heart disease is often carried out using the technique of nuclear medicine angiography. It is also used to assess the prognosis for sudden cardiac death or heart failure. Studies have shown that nuclear medicine cardiac imaging is also a method to assess the function and distribution of the sympathetic nerves. This allows for the detection of neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s or Louis’s dementia. In addition, it is observed that heart rate, heart pressure, and heart/mediastinum count ratio (H/M) in clinical data of patients with clinical conditions may indicate an element of importance. The ratio of heart/mediastinum calculated from the above physiological information linked to the nuclear CT image can be used to monitor sudden death from heart failure, the prognosis of heart failure, Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

Similar to nuclear medicine myocardial permeability Nuclear medical cardiac angiography can also have issues with radioactivity that lasts for a long time and longer-term testing. The results of cardiac angiography could be used to diagnose and diagnose certain neurodegenerative conditions. To accomplish the goals mentioned above, the quantification and standardization of data from images is extremely vital. Image data standardization and quantification between different systems has been accomplished in many countries. The result of quantification of quantitative data in the process of nuclear medicine imaging can still be affected by different personnel and takes longer to quantify the image data with labor work. Thanks to the rapid development of technology, smart wearable devices like the Apple watch, Xiaomi bracelets, ASUS VivoWatch BP and JSmax sports bracelets allow for monitoring of vital data like heart rate ECG, blood pressure and blood oxygen at any given time. Human body big data collection is becoming much simpler. With the advancement of artificial intelligence technology this is now possible to integrate with the monitoring of physiological data via smart wearable devices such as the apple watch, Xiaomi bracelet ASUS VivoWatch and JSmax sports bracelet and various other physiological information. The physiological data collected from wearable devices could also be used to assess the possibility of developing a neurodegenerative diseases.

What is a patent?

The government grants patents to safeguard an invention patents give the inventor with the exclusive right to create, use to sell, and market the invention? society is benefited when a brand new technology is brought into the marketplace. Benefits can be realized in directly, in that it may allow people to do previously impossible things, or indirectly, due to the opportunities for economic growth (business growth and employment) that the innovation offers.

A lot of pharmaceutical companies and researchers at universities seek patent protection to protect their research and development. Patents can be granted to the creation of a product, process or method of making new materials. To be granted patent protection the invention must be useful, new, and not obvious to other people in the same field.

Patents are awarded to inventors who have commercially viable inventions. They serve as a motivator for inventors to create. Patents allow inventors and small companies to be confident that there’s an excellent chance that they will receive a return for their time, effort, and money invested in technology development. They can earn money by their work.

Patents are essential to businesses with the ability to:

Protect your innovative products and services

Improve the visibility and the value of your products ‘ presence on the market

Differentiate your business and products from the rest;

Get business and technical details.

Beware of accidentally using content from third parties or you risk losing important information or creative outputs as well as other outputs.

Patents transform the knowledge of inventors into an asset that can be sold, which creates new opportunities for job creation through joint ventures and licensing.

Investors involved in the development and commercialization of technology may find small businesses with patent protection appealing.

Patenting can lead to new inventions and ideas. These information may be protected by patents.

How to Search for Patents

The first step to get the patent you want is to perform an internet search for patents. You can do a google patent search or do a USPTO search. Once the patent application is filed, the product that is covered by the patent application could be referred to as patent-pending and you can find the patent application online on the public pair. Once the patent office has approved your application, you will be able do a patent number look to locate the issued patent. Your product will now be patentable. Alongside the USPTO search engine, you can also utilize other search engines like espacenet, as detailed below. For assistance, consult an attorney for patents. In the US, patents are granted through the US patent and trademark office, or the United States patent and trademark office, which is also responsible for examining trademark applications.

Interested in finding more similar patents? These are the steps:

1. Think of terms that describe your invention, based on its purpose, composition, or use.

Write down a concise, precise description of your idea. Do not use generic terms such as “device,” “process,” and “system.” Think about synonyms for the terms you chose initially. Also, make note of key technical terms as well as keywords.

Use the questions below to help you determine key words or concepts.

  • What is the goal of the invention? Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
  • Is the invention a way of making something or performing an action? Or is it a thing or procedure?
  • What is the composition of the invention? What is the physical structure of the invention?
  • What is the purpose of the invention?
  • What are technical terms and key words that define the nature of an invention? To find the right terms, refer to an online dictionary of technical terms.

2. Use these terms to find relevant Cooperative Patent Classifications at the Classification Text Search Tool. To find the most appropriate classification for your invention, look through the resulting classification’s class Schemes (class schedules). Consider substituting the words that you’ve used to describe your invention if you don’t get any results from the Classification Text Search with synonyms such as the terms you used in Step 1.

3. Go through 3. Check the CPC Classification Definition to confirm the validity of the CPC classification you have found. If the chosen classification includes a blue box which contains “D” and “D”, then the hyperlink to the CPC classification definition will be displayed. CPC classification definitions can be used to determine the scope of the classification and therefore you’re certain to choose the one that is relevant. Additionally the definitions may include some tips for searching and other information which could be helpful to further study.

4. Retrieve patent documents with the CPC classification from the Patents Full-Text and Image Database. You can review and find the most relevant patent documents by focusing first on the abstract and the drawings that are representative.

5. This selection of patent publications is the best to look at for any similarities with your invention. Pay close attention to the specifications and claims. Contact the applicant as well as the patent examiner to obtain additional patents.

6. You can retrieve published patent applications that meet the CPC classification you selected in Step 3. You may also employ the same search strategy that you utilized in Step 4 to narrow your search results to only the most relevant patents by reading the abstracts and representative drawings on each page. Next, examine the patent applications that have been published carefully and pay particular attention to the claims and other drawings.

7. You can search for additional US patent publications using keyword searches in AppFT or PatFT databases, as well as search for patents classified as that aren’t from the United States as in the following table. Also, you can use web search engines to find non-patent documents that describe inventions in the literature. Here are a few examples:

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
