|20120300904||CHEST DIAGNOSTIC SUPPORT INFORMATION GENERATION SYSTEM - A chest diagnostic support information generation system includes: a radiography section which radiographs a chest portion of a subject; an image analysis section which generates a diagnostic support information based on an image data generated by the radiography section; and a display which displays the diagnostic support information, wherein the radiography section obtains a plurality of frame images which show a motion state of the chest of the subject, and the image analysis section includes: a breathing information generation section which generates the diagnostic support information relating to breathing of the subject based on a difference value of the pixel or the block corresponded with each other between image frames temporally adjacent among the plurality of frame images; and a blood flow information generation section which generates the diagnostic support information relating to blood flow of the subject based on a generated output signal wave form.||11-29-2012|
|20120041314||ORGANIC PIEZOELECTRIC MATERIAL, ULTRASOUND PROBE, AND ULTRASOUND IMAGE DETECTOR - In the present invention, provided is an organic piezoelectric material specifically exhibiting high orientation and thermal stability as an organic piezoelectric material exhibiting an excellent piezoelectric characteristic and having piezoelectricity and pyroelectricity, which is capable of converting thermal or mechanical simulation into electrical energy, and also provided are an ultrasound probe for which the organic piezoelectric material is used, and an ultrasound image detector thereof. It is a feature that an organic piezoelectric material of the present invention possesses a compound represented by Formula (1) and a base material made of an organic polymeric material, satisfying Expression (1): |CLogP (1)−CLogP (base material)|≦3.0 when CLogP values of the compound and the base material are expressed as CLogP (1) and CLogP (base material), respectively.||02-16-2012|
|20120019556||INTERPRETATION REPORT CREATING AIDING DEVICE AND COMPUTER-READABLE STORAGE MEDIUM STORING A PROGRAM THEREFOR - An interpretation report creation aiding device includes a display unit and a control unit which displays an interpretation report creation screen on the display unit. In the interpretation report creation screen, a right breast image and a left breast image to be interpreted are disposed in a central region thereof in such a way as to be bilaterally symmetrical, and an interpretation report writing region for writing an interpretation report on the right breast image and an interpretation report writing region for writing an interpretation report on the left breast image are respectively disposed in regions respectively adjacent to the right breast image and the left breast image.||01-26-2012|
|20090296884||IMAGE CAPTURING SYSTEM FOR MEDICAL USE, IMAGE PROCESSING APPARATUS, AND IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD - The present invention provides a technique capable of objectively discriminating the constituent of a subject also in an image in which density difference is not easily discriminated on a gray image obtained by image capturing for medical use using X-rays. An image capturing system for medical use includes: a detecting unit for detecting an X-ray dose by absorbing X-rays passed through a subject in image capturing for medical use and outputting absorbed X-ray dose information; an obtaining unit for obtaining image information of the subject from the absorbed X-ray dose information; an image processing unit for calculating average detection energy in each first predetermined region in the image information; and an output unit for outputting the average detection energy.||12-03-2009|
