  • Publication number: 20240164746
    Abstract: An ultrasonic diagnostic system includes an ultrasonic diagnostic device having a probe, a moving device configured to move the probe, and a control device. When ultrasonic diagnosis is performed on a subject, the control device controls the moving device such that the probe is pressed against a body surface of the subject, and in a case where a specific pattern is designated as a movement pattern of the probe, controls the moving device such that the pressing of the probe on the body surface is canceled or alleviated, then controls the moving device such that the probe is moved with the specific pattern, and when the movement with the specific pattern is ended, performs a specific control for controlling the moving device such that the probe is pressed against the body surface.

  • Publication number: 20230255595
    Abstract: An image display device includes circuitry configured to acquire, from a human body, three-dimensional image information on an inside of the human body including a biological tube using a plurality of ultrasonic sensors, specify a position, in the biological tube, where a width of a longitudinal cross-section of the biological tube is maximum using transverse cross-section information on the biological tube included in the three-dimensional image information, generate an image representing the longitudinal cross-section of the biological tube at the position specified, and output the image generated to a display.

  • Publication number: 20220378317
    Abstract: A system for detecting a position of a long medical device includes a model acquisition portion that acquires a blood vessel model, a correspondence detection portion 1 that detects a position of a long medical device inserted into a blood vessel and detects a correspondence between the blood vessel model and the position of the long medical device, and a display portion that displays the position of the long medical device in association with the blood vessel model on the basis of a detection result of the correspondence detection portion.

  • Publication number: 20220378396
    Abstract: A system for operating an ultrasound probe that is provided with sensor operation portions for operating the ultrasound probe that acquires ultrasound echo images of a blood vessel, and a control portion that controls operations of the sensor operation portions. The control portion may switch the arrangement of the ultrasound probe using the sensor operation portions between a first arrangement for acquiring an image of a cross section in the transverse direction of the blood vessel and a second arrangement for acquiring an image of a cross section in the longitudinal direction of the blood vessel.

  • Patent number: 10895785
    Abstract: A liquid crystal display panel includes a first substrate, a second substrate, a liquid crystal layer, and a main sealing portion. The second substrate opposes the first substrate. The liquid crystal layer is disposed between the first substrate and the second substrate. The main sealing portion is disposed in a circular shape to surround the liquid crystal layer and assembles the first substrate and the second substrate together to seal the liquid crystal layer between the substrates. A distance between opposing surfaces of the first substrate and the second substrate in a main attachment region of the substrates where the main sealing portion is disposed is smaller at an innermost peripheral portion than at the other portions.

  • Publication number: 20200004063
    Abstract: [Object] An object is to provide a liquid crystal display panel in which a decrease in display quality is reduced. [Solution] A liquid crystal display panel 10 includes an array substrate 30 including an array-substrate transparent substrate 31, a CF substrate 20 including a CF-substrate transparent substrate 21, and a sealing portion 50 bonding the substrates 20 and 30 together to seal a liquid crystal layer 40. The liquid crystal display panel 10 is separated from liquid crystal display panel body component 10M including rows of liquid crystal display panels 10 connected to each other with a dummy area DA therebetween. In the liquid crystal display panel body component 10M, a cell gap (distance between plate surfaces of an array-substrate mother transparent substrate 31M and a CF-substrate mother transparent substrate 21M) in a dummy attachment region DR of the dummy area DA having a dummy sealing portion 60 is larger than that in a main attachment region SR having the main sealing portion 50 (GDR>GSR).

  • Publication number: 20080214959
    Abstract: In a guide wire (1), a core line (2) has a proximal side wire (4) and a distal side wire (5), the latter of which is to be connected to a front end of the proximal side wire (4). The distal wire (5) is smaller in rigidity and superior in restitution than the proximal side wire (4). A concave portion (51) is provided on either the distal end surface of the proximal side wire (4) or a proximal end surface of the distal side wire (5). A convex portion (41) is provided on the other side wire among the distal end surface of the proximal side wire (4) and the proximal end surface of the distal side wire (5) The concave portion (51) and the convex portion (41) are interfit together, and pressure bonded by means of swaging or drawing procedure.
