  • Publication number: 20170125158
    Abstract: A formed body incorporating a coil by using: a coil formed by winding a conductive wire, and a formed body incorporating the coil, the formed body being formed with a sealing material containing a resin and a magnetic material. The coil is formed by winding the conductive wire so that lead-out ends are positioned at an outer periphery of a wound portion. The formed body is formed so that surfaces of the coil are partially exposed on four side surfaces of the formed body which are parallel to a winding axis of the coil, and the area of a portion of the formed body outside the outer periphery of the wound portion is almost equal to or smaller than the area of a portion of the formed body inside an inner periphery of the wound portion of the coil.

  • Patent number: 8734340
    Abstract: A patient terminal can communicate with doctor terminals and a center terminal via a communication network. The patient terminal acquires vital data from a measuring device with a receiving unit. A control unit determines whether the vital data contains an abnormal value and the necessity of messaging depending on the presence or absence of a manual messaging request with a message button and selects the doctor terminal or the center terminal. When it is determined that messaging is necessary, the control unit makes a communication unit call the selected terminal.

  • Patent number: 7912180
    Abstract: Scattered radiation is estimated by using a reduced image generated from a projection image, and the scattered radiation image of the projection image is acquired by enlargement processing. The scattered radiation correction of the projection image is executed by subtracting the obtained scattered radiation image from the projection image. In addition, when a primary X-ray image and a scattered radiation image in each projection direction are to be obtained by sequential approximation calculation, a primary X-ray image which has already been identified in an adjacent projection direction is used as a first estimated value (initially set value) in next sequential calculation.
