  • Publication number: 20210315540
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus includes processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to acquire a current position information of an ultrasonic probe in three-dimensional space. The processing circuitry is further configured to switch from a body mark indicating one body part to a body mark indicating the other body part, when a body mark indicating one body part of a pair of left and right body parts is displayed, and when the ultrasonic probe is positioned at a position farther than a predetermined distance from a midpoint of the pair of left and right body parts toward the other body part.

  • Publication number: 20200077983
    Abstract: The ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus according to a present embodiment includes processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to acquire a contrast image and a vascular structure image which includes the vascular structure in an image acquisition mode capable of capturing the vascular structure. The processing circuitry is configured to extract data indicating the vascular structure from the vascular structure image. The processing circuitry is configured to superimpose the data indicating the vascular structure on the contrast image to generate a superimposed image. The processing circuitry is configured to display the superimposed image on a display.

  • Publication number: 20180206822
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an ultrasound diagnosis apparatus is capable of receiving an operation instruction via a touch panel. The ultrasound diagnosis apparatus includes a storage, an identification unit, and a controller. The storage stores association information in which operation instructions are each associated with a finger type. The identification unit identifies the finger type of a finger that has touched any position on the touch panel. The controller performs one of the operation instructions associated with the finger type identified based on the association information.
