  • Patent number: 11058386
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a medical image diagnosis system includes a plurality of devices, operating circuitry, processing circuitry, and a display. The plurality of devices is to be inserted into a body of an object. The operating circuitry operates at least one of the devices. The processing circuitry obtains a medical image of the object and specifies a device being operated based on movement of the device in the medical image when the device is being operated by the operating circuitry. The display identifiably displays a device to be operated by the operating circuitry based on a result of specification by the processing circuitry.

  • Patent number: 10285660
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an X-ray diagnostic apparatus includes a support frame, an input button, and processing circuitry. The support frame supports an X-ray detector which detects X-rays. The input button provides on at least one of an exterior of the support frame and an exterior of the X-ray detector and inputs an instruction to implement an assigned moving operation pattern of a plurality of moving operation patterns concerning movement of at least one of the support frame, the X-ray detector, and a table top. The processing circuitry assigns the input button with an instruction to implement a moving operation pattern, of the plurality of moving operation patterns, which is selected by an operator.

  • Publication number: 20180000438
    Abstract: An X-ray diagnostic apparatus according to an embodiment includes an X-ray tube, an X-ray detector, an arm holding the X-ray tube and processing circuitry. The processing circuitry obtains body thickness information of a subject in an acquisition direction of an X-ray image at an arm position different from an arm position at a start of acquiring X-ray images. The processing circuitry sets, based on the body thickness information of the subject, acquisition condition at the start of acquiring the X-ray images. The processing circuitry starts acquiring of the X-ray images with the set acquisition condition. The processing circuitry acquires the X-ray images sequentially by rotating the arm while iteratively,setting the acquisition condition by feedback control.
