  • Patent number: 10825315
    Abstract: Fall detection and reporting technology, in which output from at least one sensor configured to sense, in a room of a building, activity associated with a patient falling is monitored and a determination is made to capture one or more images of the room based on the monitoring. An image of the room is captured with a camera positioned to include the patient within a field of view of the camera and the captured image of the room is analyzed to detect a state of the patient at a time of capturing the image. A potential fall event for the patient is determined based on the detected state of the patient and a message indicating the potential fall event for the patient is sent based on the determination of the potential fall event for the patient. Techniques are also described for fall detection and reporting using an on-body sensing device.

  • Patent number: 10732245
    Abstract: In a diagnostic imaging device, such as an MRI device, correction processing improves an image to be a high-quality image and an imaging time is shortened. In the diagnostic imaging device, a noise reduction unit 201 reduces a noise in observation data acquired with an observation unit 100 and converted into an image, and the image correction unit 202 corrects the noise reduced data by correction processing that uses visual characteristics of human. The image correction unit 202 separates the noise reduced data into a broad luminance component and a local variation component, and generates a correction level map using the broad luminance component. Correcting the noise reduced data using this correction level map and the local variation component acquires a high-quality image that is competent in the clinical field.
