  • Publication number: 20220183648
    Abstract: An X-ray diagnostic apparatus of an embodiment includes an input interface, and processing circuitry. The input interface accepts an input operation performed by an operator. The processing circuitry identifies a period in which periodic movement is small in an X-ray irradiation area. The processing circuitry determines irradiation start timing of an X-ray according to the period. The processing circuitry controls to perform X-ray irradiation of a relatively high dose in the determined irradiation start timing on condition that the input operation is being continued.

  • Patent number: 9280314
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for controlling a cordless telephone device for use in a system that allows remote control of a home electric appliance. The method includes a first generation step of causing a first generation unit in a handset to encode audio input via a sound receiving unit in the handset to generate a first stream, and a first transmission step of transmitting the first stream to a base unit. The first generation step includes causing the first generation unit to generate instruction bit information and a first instruction stream when a first trigger indicating a request to start the remote control is given to the first generation unit. The first transmission step includes transmitting the instruction bit information and the first instruction stream to the base unit through a multiplexing scheme that is common to transmission of a first stream generated when the first trigger is not given.
