  • Publication number: 20150042643
    Abstract: Provided is one example of a medical X-ray apparatus used as a C-arm fluoroscopy apparatus for endoscopy. Firstly, a three-dimensional image (CBCT volume data) is obtained through cone beam CT imaging (CBCT imaging). Then a stereogram (right and left fluoroscopy images) is generated through endoscopy (fluoroscopy). Thereafter, a stereoscopic image (right and left CBCT images) is generated based on the three-dimensional image (CBCT volume data) in projection directions in the stereogram. The three-dimensional image (stereoscopic image) and the stereogram are same in terms of an X-ray image. Accordingly, these images are superimposed to be displayed in real time on a display unit. This allows identification of a position and a direction of an object under fluoroscopy. Moreover, a three-dimensional coordinate of the object is detected from the stereogram in real time. Consequently, the position and the direction under fluoroscopy can be identified much readily, leading to perform accurate navigation.

  • Publication number: 20140337617
    Abstract: Long-term signature data is formed at a server side while a private key and the like are held at a client side. The long-term signature data is configured by arranging ES, STS, verification information, ATS (1st), and ATS (2nd) in a predetermined long-term signature format. Among these elements, those for which processing using the private key and original data are necessary are ES and ATS. Due to processing where the original data and the private key is necessary being performed by a client terminal 3 and processing where the long-term signature data is analyzed and generated being performed by a long-term signature server 2, the long-term signature data is generated in the long-term signature server 2 while the original data and the private key are held in an inner portion of the client terminal 3.

  • Patent number: 8798231
    Abstract: One object of this invention is to provide radiography apparatus with suppressed exposure to a subject in tomography mode. An FPD provided in X-ray apparatus according to this invention converts X-rays into electric signals, and thereafter amplifies the signals to output them to an image generation section. According to this invention, an amplification factor is higher in a tomography mode than in a spot radiography mode. A tomographic image is obtained through superimposing two or more fluoroscopic image. In comparison of the fluoroscopic images, they differ from one another in appearance of the false image. Accordingly, superimposing the images may achieve cancel of the false images. In this way, the tomographic image finally obtained has no false image.
