Disclosed is a radiation image capturing apparatus including the following. A sensor panel includes a plurality of radiation detecting elements aligned two-dimensionally. A case stores the sensor panel. A ventilation hole is provided in the case. A ventilation filter is provided in the ventilation hole and prevents infiltration of liquid into the case. Air flows in and out of the case through the ventilation hole and a thickness of the case is maintained at a predetermined thickness when outside pressure changes.

A diagnostic ultrasound imaging device is connectable to an ultrasound probe which has a piezoelectric element. The diagnostic ultrasound imaging device includes an image generation unit, a display unit, a touch panel and a control unit. The image generation unit generates an ultrasound image on the basis of a reception signal obtained from received reflected ultrasound from a subject. The display unit displays the generated ultrasound image on a display screen. The touch panel detects an operation on the display screen. When the touch panel detects on the displayed ultrasound image an end of a cursor movement operation to move a cursor, the control unit displays near the moved cursor an operation button to activate a predetermined function.

It is intended to provide a liposome preparation which is a liposome, has a lipid bilayer membrane composed of an inner membrane constituted by a lipid including one or more types of functional lipids (a lipid capable of chemically interacting with another compound such as a charged lipid, a polarizable lipid, a lipid-soluble lipid or a water-soluble lipid) and an outer membrane constituted by a lipid with or without including one or more types of functional lipids, and is characterized in that at least a condition that the amount of any one type of functional lipid contained in the inner membrane is larger than in the outer membrane is satisfied. The liposome preparation is suitable as a liposome for encapsulating a contrast agent (a neutral substance having a hydroxy group), siRNA (an anionic substance) having an anticancer activity or the like. Its encapsulation ratio of drug agents, dispersion stability, control release and the like have been improved.

An image forming apparatus includes: an image forming section; a pair of rollers; a displacement detection section; a displacement correction section; a translation amount determination section; and a control section configured to refer to a translation control table, operate the displacement correction section in accordance with a translation command value corresponding to a detection result obtained by the displacement detection section, obtain at a predetermined timing a relationship between the translation command value and a translation amount of the sheet, and update the translation control table on the basis of the relationship. The control section updates the translation control table when a displacement of a sheet is correctable, but does not update the translation control table when a displacement of a sheet is correctable.
