2013-285 – Mayo Case No.: 2013-285 Title: Application-based VAD Interrogation System to Prevent Adverse Events Background: According to The Advisory Board Company, the incidence of heart failure in the United States continues to increase with the number of new cases reported growing from 500,000 to 676,000 per year. They estimate that 10% of these cases represent class IV heart failure which is... Read More
2013-273 – Background: Aerobic fitness is one of the best predictors of all-cause mortality but not easily assessed on a large scale accurately. Technology Description: A web based health fitness assessment tool which may be carried out at any location and requires nothing more than a device camera, web portal, a step, and a chair. Using technology based light reflection and color spectrum, heart... Read More
2013-100 – Background: This invention creates a digital dash board which is integrated into a monitor within any invasive laboratory. The digital dash board displays real-time information on the patient during the procedure. The dash board also can be used to assess the risk of the patient and safety assessment prior to the procedure.
2012-029 – Biomarkers capable of detecting early, rapidly progressing, or subtle alterations of cardiac right ventricular (RV) load could substantially contribute to timely diagnosis and effective treatment of RV disorders, which in same cases could escalate to severe or even life threatening conditions, such as acute pulmonary embolism. This invention describes novel RV shape biomarkers sensitive to... Read More
2011-154 – The purpose of SAMR is to help clinicians find answers to clinical questions. The medical literature needed to correctly treat a patient grows exponentially. Data shows that both health care institutions and individual physicians are overwhelmed trying to incorporate this new knowledge. SAMR is a tool that could bridge this gap to improve patient care. SAMR uses semantic elements, the meaning... Read More
2011-073 – Technology Description Hospitals and surgery centers face significant cost pressure when it comes to maintaining materials and supplies. With supply costs representing a significant expense in surgical services, close and careful monitoring is needed to reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Developed at Mayo Clinic, the Supply Inventory Management System (SIMS) is a comprehensive program... Read More
2011-059 – This web or CD-ROM based electromyography (EMG) training tool consists of an interactive, case-based program that assists trainees in learning the application of electrodiagnostic studies and interpretation of findings.
2010-170 – The Enterprise Data Model is a schematic entity-relationship diagram depicting how data relates to each other within the context of Mayo’s practice, education and research activities. It collectively forms the basis around which all information at Mayo is organized, and from which the system pulls data for purposes of developing the logical and physical representation of data within its...

2010-038 – The individual cross-sectional images along the arteries were analyzed individually by creating a Region-of-Interest (ROI) that encompassed the vessel wall. To ensure that the entire arterial wall was included into the ROI, the radius of the lumen ® was measured, which was used as the width of the annular ROI surrounding the arterial lumen (12). By creating a binary image of the punctate... Read More
2009-144 – Using audiovisual support we have created educational videos in all facets of General Surgery Education: Knot tying, Syringe, Specimen handling, Operative procedures, reading Chest X-rays/CT Scans/ MRI, etc. Basically we are creating a library of AV clips (30 seconds - 5 minutes) that educate Students/Residents/Fellows/Staff on everything in surgery.
2005-239 – A new method to acquire the data for reconstructing 3D magnetization prepared fast gradient echo MR images has been developed. Comparing with existing methods, the MR signals for only a fraction of data points with the combined phase encoding in two directions satisfying a certain criteria are acquired. The acquisitions of these data points are arranged into multiple groups proceed by... Read More
2004-194 – Invention represents ARMA model describing dynamic behavior between QT and RR intervals in ECG signal. Model predicts QT behavior from detected RR changes. Parameters of model seem to be identical for healthy subjects in all age groups and for both genders. Model may be applied for better understanding of QT interval regulation physiology and pathophysiology, individual sudden arrhythmic... Read More
1995-134 – A statistical learning algorithm about average left ventricular (LV) geometry is described. It allows a knowledgeable recovery of the LV boundry from sparse ultrasound data and minimal user-supplied clues. Objective analysis of LV function in artifact-prone ultrasound images of the heart.
