  • Patent number: 10197028
    Abstract: A fuel injector is provided. A movable iron core is provided relatively displaceable to a valve body. A fixed iron core is opposed to the movable iron core. A first spring member energizes the valve body in a valve closing direction. A second spring member energizes the movable iron core in a valve closing direction. Contact portions are in contact with each other in a case where the movable iron core displaces in a valve opening direction with respect to the valve body. A gap is formed between the contact portions in a valve closing state. In a state in which the movable iron core and the valve body move in different directions after the movable iron core collides with the fixed iron core while a valve is opened, a spring force is not applied between the movable iron core and the valve body.

  • Publication number: 20180192996
    Abstract: An ultrasonic diagnostic device includes an ultrasonic probe and processing circuitry. The probe conducts ultrasonic scanning on a three-dimensional area of a subject and receives a reflected wave from the subject. The circuitry acquires the correspondence relation between a position in ultrasonic image data on the three-dimensional area based on the reflected wave and a position in volume data on the subject captured by a different medical-image diagnostic device. The circuitry receives, from an operator, an operation to set a position marker, which indicates the position at which blood-flow information is extracted, on a scan area of the ultrasonic image data. The circuitry causes the image generated during a rendering process on the ultrasonic image data to be displayed and causes the position marker to be displayed at a corresponding position on a display image based on at least the volume data in accordance with the correspondence relation.
