Imaging diagnosis and program

An imaging apparatus is disclosed for diagnosis including a plurality of transmitting and receiving units, an error of a scale of a tomographic image to be generated is reduced. The imaging apparatus can include including acquisition means for acquiring a propagation velocity of an ultrasound signal of a flushing liquid, generation means for generating ultrasound line data based on the propagation velocity of the ultrasound signal in a blood vessel tissue, and conversion means for converting positional information of each position within a range in which the flushing liquid flows regarding the ultrasound line data generated by the generation means based on a ratio between the propagation velocity in the blood vessel tissue and the propagation velocity in the flushing liquid.

Method for measuring intracranial elasticity

A novel method to noninvasively measure intracranial pressure (icp) and more generally brain elasticity is disclosed. Icp is determined using an algorithm coupled on a simulated artificial neural network (sann) that calculates icp based on a determination of a set of interacted ultrasound signals (iuss) generated from multiple ultrasound pulses.


Ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus

An ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus according to the present embodiment includes an ultrasonic probe, image generation circuitry, acquisition circuitry, calculation circuitry, guide image generation circuitry, and control circuitry. The ultrasonic probe transmits ultrasonic waves, and receives reflected waves.

Material decomposition technique using x-ray phase contrast imaging system

A phase contrast x-ray imaging system generates an absorption image and a phase shift image of an object under study. The absorption image represents a measurement of the imaged object's attenuation of radiographic energy, and the phase shift image represents a measurement of the imaged object's phase shifting of the radiographic waves passing through the object.

Surgical guidance system with low interference metal support structure

In accordance with the invention, a reliable apparatus for guiding an ablation probe to a target location inside a human body is thus provided. The apparatus allows incorporation of a conventional metal operating room table, but further comprises a substantially non-conductive separation structure positioned over the metal operating room table and underneath a horizontally oriented electromagnetic field generator.

Mower having a continuously variable power split device

A grass mower comprising a power generator, a blade reel, a drive drum, and a power split device. The split power device can include a single power input shaft, a reel output shaft, a drum output shaft, and at least one continuously variable transmission hub operably connecting the reel output shaft and/or the drum output shaft to the power input shaft such that torque and rotational speed delivered by the power input shaft is transferrable to the reel and/or drum output shafts at any infinitely variable ratio.
