The present invention provides a pharmaceutical product which includes a solid preparation comprising pitavastatin or a salt thereof, in which production of a lactone form thereof is suppressed. The pharmaceutical product is characterized by including a solid preparation comprising the following ingredients (A) and (B): (A) pitavastatin or a salt thereof; and (B) at least one member selected from the group consisting of carmellose and a salt thereof, crospovidone, and microcrystalline cellulose, and the solid preparation having a water content of 2.9 mass% or less, wherein the solid preparation is stored in a tight package.


A three-dimensional tomographic image (B) is formed which is composed of a plurality of two-dimensional tomographic images obtained by scanning an ocular fundus. A contour of a certain 2D region (M1, M2, M3, M4) in the tomographic image is determined for each tomographic image, and the volume of a certain 3D region is calculated through correcting each area of the certain 2D region defined by the determined contour or its accumulated value using an image correction coefficient in accordance with the diopter of the subjects eye. Even for subjects eyes of different diopters, the influence of the diopter correction is eliminated and a quantitative comparison of subjects eyes of different diopters is possible.

The tomographic image capturing device of the present invention is configured to: split light from a light source (11) into measurement light and reference light; cause the measurement light and the reference light to be incident to an object (E) and a reference object (49), respectively; and capture tomographic images of the object (E) on the basis of interference light generated by superposition of the measurement light reflected from the object (E) and the reference light reflected from the reference object (49). The tomographic image capturing device has a first image capturing mode and a second image capturing mode. The first and second image capturing modes are each a mode in which the measurement light is two-dimensionally scanned to be incident to the object (E) and the tomographic images of the object (E) are captured. The two-dimensional scans in the second image capturing mode require a shorter time than that required for the two-dimensional scans in the first image capturing mode. The capturing of the tomographic images in the first image capturing mode is performed after performing adjustment of an image capturing condition necessary for capturing the tomographic images in the first image capturing mode. The adjustment is based on the tomographic images captured in the second image capturing mode.

[Problem] To make it possible to prevent vibrations or the like from causing focus or zoom slippage or the like in a lens that is mounted to a camera body that is used in a fixed location outdoors for many years for security purposes or is used inside a building that is subject to a variety of variations, such as a camera that is used for quality-checking purposes or the like at a production site in a factory. [Solution] The lens barrel (1) in this invention has the following: a fixed tube section (10) that is mounted to a camera body (B) ; a movable tube section (20) that is movably screwed to the fixed tube section (10); and a nut member (12) that, screwed to the movable tube section (20), is energized towards top end (10b) of the fixed tube section (10). The nut member (12) acts as a double nut, making it possible to inhibit rotation of the fixed tube section (10) and the movable tube section (20) relative to each other, preventing focus or zoom slippage or the like.
