2015-086 – No summary available
2015-164 – Mayo Clinic has discovered that WSB1 can be used as a diagnostic marker for tumor metastasis and a therapeutic target.
2016-451 – No standard tools are currently available to measure a patient’s progress in regards to their care plan or discharge goals. Determination of patient status is dependent upon delving into multiple medical documents, a process that is cumbersome and costly. Mayo Clinic investigators have developed the Electronic Case Management Tool to simplify the ascertainment of patient status and provide... Read More

2014-031 – This technology applies and integrates significant, computationally intensive reading tools into electronic medical records (EMR) systems to enhance medical reading performance by individuals who, in any other context, would not be aware of or concerned about their reading performance compared to their peers in their working group. The technology includes: 1. A medical language database... Read More
2012-185 – This technology includes a suite of patents which advance text enhancement methods and apparatus for the presentation of text for improved human reading for the electronic medical record (EMR). The method includes extracting text specific attributes from machine readable text and varying the text presentation in accordance with the attributes. Suite of patents include: -US Patent...

2003-128 – Human brain tumors that show invasive behavior in the brains of immunocompromised mice. Numerous, well-characterized tissue grafts are available.
2012-011 – Scores based on patient reported symptoms (stool frequency and rectal bleeding), endoscopic exam of bowel mucosa and physician review of patient degree of illness severity. A combined score is used to determine severity of symptoms and to assess changes with therapy over time.
2011-130 – The calibration data for an accelerated contrast-enhanced MRA acquisition are acquired in the short time after contrast injection and before contrast arrival. This eliminates the separate acquisition for calibration data.
2011-021 – A method is developed for eliminating the calibration scan in SENSE-accelerated time-resolved MRA.
2011-020 – Progress of an intravenously administered contrast bolus along the peripheral vasculature is tracked in real time by generating diagnostic quality images and then using the information to cause the patient table to move so as to allow generation a high quality angiogram along the entire extent of the vasculature.
2010-152 – A device and method for MRI in-scanner imaging of chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) of the lower legs has been developed and validated.
2009-235 – Using accelerated time-resolved 3-D imaging methods such as the Mayo-developed Cartesian Acquisition with Projection Reconstruction like sampling (CAPR) it is possible to generate data for both a time series of MR angiograms as well as an image of perfusion.
Visual Syntactic Text Formatting to Improve Human Reading in Patient-Data Secure Electronic Health Systems
2009-089 – The invention combines computer-executed syntactic parsing algorithms with spatial layout parameters to reformat electronic text in cascading-phrase patterns that are designed to guide eye-movements, reduce visual regressions, and provide visual cues to sentence structure. Empirical studies, in both laboratory and real-world educational settings, have shown that this parser-generated format... Read More
2008-299 – A technique is described for taking images generated from an MRI acquisition done with contrast administration and converting the image data into a single image which portrays the time of arrival (TOA) of the advancing contrast bolus. The TOA image allows distinction of arterial from venous structures based on their different arrival times. The quality of the results depends on... Read More
2008-315 – Parallel imaging can be applied to further reduce acquisition times. To do so, coil sensativities have to be determined. One option is to use self-or-auto calibrated methods which in general use unaccelerated sampling in some central region of the otherwise undersampled k-space. However, the fraction of acquisition time devoted to calibration can be substantial, particularly in high... Read More
Mathematical Model of Insulin Secretion in Response to Changing Glucose Concentrations to Allow Creation of an Artificial Pancreas
2008-201 – The relationship between insulin secretion and changes in glucose concentrations is not linear and is affected by parameters such as body weight, rate of change, time of day, concomitant activities such as exercise or eating and insulin sensitivity. This model attempts to relate the relationship of insulin to glucose in terms that would be used to program an insulin pump that could respond to... Read More
2008-136 – A method is described which provides reduction of acquisition time for 3DFT MRI. It is based on a specific way to sample k-space which is robust to undersampling. It can be used in conjunction with other methods for reduction of acquisition time.
2008-178 – A technique is described for MR imaging of an extended field of which uses a combination of multiple-fixed-station and continuously moving table acquisitions. This preserves the ability to perform acceleration techniques and also provides high time efficiency.
2008-177 – A coil array is designed for 2D acceleration in MRI for imaging an object with markedly different fields of view in the two phase encoding directions in which the coil elements in one direction have markedly different size than elements in the other direction.
2005-231 – Under the Minnesota Partnership, researchers at the University of Minnesota and at Mayo have developed a database for use in the evaluation of potential prostate cancer biomarkers. Researchers have profiled gene expression of benign and malignant cells that were laser capture microdissected (LCM) from prostate tissues and metastatic adenocarcinomas. In addition, researchers have conducted... Read More
2004-056 – This disclosure provides a way to improve the Talairach Labeling scheme that allows labelings to be reported at 0.2 mm resolution - providing 2500% increase over the current standard.
2004-055 – This invention performs a robust, fast and fully automatic parameterization of T2 images into an intensity space that all existing approaches optimized to handle T1 images can benefit from.
2004-027 – To accomplish a given computational task, a number of algorithmic and heuristic approaches can be implemented to act upon the given instance of the input data. Depending upon the intrinsic and extrinsic assumptions made regarding the data, algorithm and the task, the end result from each of these approaches could be different. Currently, there does not exist an automatic fast, robust, precise... Read More
Prior Knowledge-Based Rapid Predicted Preview of Multiple Contrast Magnetic Resonance Images Derived from a Single Time Budgeted Acquisition
2004-023 – This invention presents a method for producing multiple MR images with different contrast from a single image acquisition. (MR T2) The methodology is used to enhance the T2 related contrast in an MRI image acquired at, but no restricted to, just-enough-to-highlight-T2, repetition time so as to produce a computed mosaic of the same image at different repetition (TR) and echo (TE) times. This... Read More
