  • Publication number: 20060247519
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of infusing contrast medium that includes a process of infusing a small amount of contrast medium from a syringe and using an image capturing device to measure a time Tarv from a start of infusion until contrast medium arrives at a lesion area, a process of subtracting the arrival time Tarv from a time Tscan necessary for infusion of a sufficient amount of contrast medium and taking this as a time T1, a process of starting infusion of contrast medium in an amount necessary for imaging of the lesion area and scanning the lesion area, and a process of stopping infusion of contrast medium once the time T1 or a time T1+? has elapsed from the start of contrast medium infusion.

  • Publication number: 20050004946
    Abstract: A method of distributing contents in a system including a distribution station for distributing contents, a relay station for relaying the contents, a management apparatus for receiving the contents distributed from the distribution station or the relay station and managing the contents, and a plurality of terminal apparatuses for receiving the contents distributed from the management apparatus, the method comprising the steps of: attaching metadata to the contents distributed from the distribution station; and adding location information of the relay station, the management apparatus or each of the terminal apparatuses to the metadata of the contents when the contents are stored in the relay station, the management apparatus or the terminal apparatus. The contents can be displayed on the user side concentratedly regardless of locations of the contents so that the contents can be acquired or played back without user's consciousness of locations of the large number of contents.

  • Patent number: 5794222
    Abstract: A mail processing system includes mail processing devices such as postage meters, a sorting machine and a host computer. Each mail processing device provides to each outgoing mail not only its mailing charge but also an indicator which identifies the device itself, storing such provided data in its memory device. The sorting machine reads from each received mail the data provided to it and stores such data in its memory device according to the device-identifying indicator. The computer serves to retrieve data from these memory devices to make comparisons. If the discrepancy is greater than a specified value, a warning signal is outputted as a fraud has been committed.
