  • Patent number: 9715575
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining image data for a patient. The image data corresponds to acquisition data from an imaging acquisition from a set of planned image acquisitions in an examination plan for the patient. The method further includes analyzing the image data with a processor based on an imaging practice guideline and producing electronically formatted data indicative of the analysis. The processor generates a signal indicative of a recommendation of a change to the examination plan based on the data indicative of the analysis.

  • Patent number: 9568578
    Abstract: A magnetic resonance imaging scan using a MR scanner receives via a user interface a MR imaging protocol categorizable into a MR scan type of a predefined set of MR scan types. Further, a database is queried by providing to the database scan information permitting the database to identify the MR scan type of the MR imaging protocol. Statistical information on the MR scan type which can include statistics on modifications of individual scan parameters of the MR scan type is received from a database, and the statistical information is provided to the user interface. Modifications of the MR imaging protocol can be received from the user interface, resulting in a modified MR imaging protocol, according to which the MR imaging scan can be performed.
