  • Publication number: 20200193655
    Abstract: An X-ray CT system includes an X-ray tube, an X-ray detector and processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to cyclically change energy of the X-rays during one rotation of the X-ray tube around a subject. The processing circuitry is configured to perform a process including a correcting process addressing a difference in a transmission amount between X-rays having first energy and X-rays having second energy, on at least one selected from between: a plurality of first projection data sets acquired when the X-rays having the first energy were radiated; and a plurality of second projection data sets acquired when the X-rays having the second energy were radiated. The processing circuitry is configured to reconstruct an image on the basis of a combined data set generated on the basis of a plurality of projection data sets including the projection data sets resulting from the process.

  • Publication number: 20200113141
    Abstract: A binding machine for gardening includes a main handle to draw out a tape, a clincher arm rotatably attached to the main handle, and a tape gripping device attached to the clincher arm. When the clincher arm rotates in a closing direction to a predetermined position with respect to the main handle, a gripping operation is performed in which the tape gripping device grips the tape. When the clincher arm further rotates in the closing direction from the predetermined position with respect to the main handle to be in a closed state, a binding operation is performed to bind objects. The gripping operation and the binding operation are performed alternately. The movement restricting unit is provided to restrict the rotation of the clincher arm in the closing direction from the predetermined position at the time of the gripping operation.
