  • Patent number: 10376225
    Abstract: A scanning X-ray imaging device (100) is proposed. The device may be specifically adapted for mammography applications. The device comprises an X-ray source (110), an X-ray line detector (150), a field limiter arrangement (170) and an observation volume (135). The field limiter arrangement (170) comprises at least two variable shield plates (174, 175) enclosing an opening (176) and a displacing mechanism (177). The shield plates may be displaced with respect to a center axis of an X-ray beam (115) by means of the displacing mechanism such as to vary at least one of a cross-section and a location of the opening (176) between the field plates (174, 175) through which at least a part of the X-ray beam (115) is transmitted. The shield plates may be displaced independently from each other by means of the displacing mechanism (177).

  • Publication number: 20160128787
    Abstract: The present invention relates to operating a biopsy unit. In order to provide an enhanced and facilitated way of controlling a biopsy unit, a control device (10) for controlling a biopsy unit is provided that comprises a support structure (12) with a housing (14), and a user interface unit (16) with a plurality of control elements (18). The control elements are configured to control the movement of a biopsy needle device along at least three moving direction lines. At least two of the moving direction lines are aligned to axes of a Cartesian coordinate system (20) and one moving direction line is aligned to a needle axis direction (22) of an elongated needle device of the biopsy unit, the needle axis direction being inclined to at least one of the axes of the Cartesian coordinate system. For each moving direction line, the housing is provided with a surface portion (24, 26, 28) that is aligned with a respective one of the moving direction lines.

  • Publication number: 20120143213
    Abstract: A patient can be taken to the operating theatre where a measurement arm can be used to locate fiducial markers relative to a fixed substrate. As a result, the location of the region of interest is known. An instrument guide, adapted to constrain movement of an instrument thereon, can then be positioned at a suitable location, and its location checked by way of the measurement arm. A computing means connected to the measurement arm so as to receive information as to the location of the tip can be programmed to determine a desired necessary movement of the guide in order to locate the instrument at a desired location relative to the region of interest. The guide can then be moved in a controlled and accurate manner from its initial position to an accurately determined correct position.

  • Publication number: 20090192185
    Abstract: The invention discloses a medical product for use in a treatment of respiratory disorders, and comprises a metered dose of a tiotropium dry powder formulation, directly loaded and sealed into a container made to act as a dry high barrier seal to prevent the capture and ingress of moisture into the tiotropium powder. The dose of tiotropium is further adapted for inhalation and the container is so tight that the efficacy of the dose when delivered is unaffected by moisture. In a further aspect of the invention a type of inhaler is illustrated, which may accept at least one sealed, moisture-tight container of a dose of tiotropium, to deliver the dose with a consistent fine particle dose, over the expected shelf life of the product.

  • Publication number: 20070110678
    Abstract: A method for administration and preparation of pharmaceutical dry powder doses are disclosed. The metered dry powder doses are formed from a finely divided dry powder of an selected anticholinergic agent to be used in a dry powder inhaler device. The metered dry powder medicinal dose is arranged as a medicinally effective quantity of the selected medicament onto a dose bed and moisture-tight sealed by using a high barrier seal, for introduction into an inhaler device provided with an Air-razor device for obtaining a fine particle fraction, FPF, of at least 30-50% of delivered powder mass when suction through the inhaler is applied, whereby the dose is delivered to and deposited in the lung of the user during a single inhalation effort.

  • Publication number: 20070101991
    Abstract: A method based on an Air-razor tool is disclosed thereby providing improved release and dispersal into air of a dose of medication powder. When air is sucked through a suction tube, particles of a powder dose, made available to the suction tube, are gradually released and dispersed into a stream of air entering the suction tube. The gradual release and dispersal is produced by a relative motion introduced between the suction tube and the dose. The high velocity air going into the suction tube inlet provides plenty of shearing stress and inertia energy as the flowing air hits the leading point of the dose. This powder Air-razor method, created by the shearing stress and inertia of the air stream, is so powerful that the particles of the powder adjacent to the inlet of the moving suction tube are released and subsequently entrained in the air stream going through the suction tube.
