  • Publication number: 20190231297
    Abstract: A radiographic imaging system, a radiographic imaging method, and a storage medium are capable of avoiding the collision of the operations, even if the operations based on a plurality of terminal apparatuses occur. The radiographic imaging system includes a radiographic imaging apparatus configured to generate a radiographic image based on radiation emitted from a radiation generating apparatus, and a control unit configured to control the radiographic imaging apparatus based on instructions from a first terminal apparatus and a second terminal apparatus. The second terminal apparatus acquires a right to control the control unit from the first terminal apparatus, and the control unit controls the radiographic imaging apparatus based on an instruction from the second terminal apparatus.

  • Patent number: 9036945
    Abstract: A medical image handling system includes a monitor for displaying a medical image, an input device for inputting an image reading report corresponding to the medical image displayed on the monitor, and a processor. The processor judges the presence or absence of an image reading report corresponding to the medical image displayed on the monitor, and restricts a change of the medical image in a case where the image reading report is judged as being absent.

  • Publication number: 20150135106
    Abstract: A radiation imaging apparatus for imaging a radiation image inputs an operation instruction from a user and performs display control of a screen that has an input region in which one or more information input regions for having various types of information input thereto are disposed, and a workflow region in which workflow information related to imaging of the radiation image is disposed. Here, when a confirmation instruction indicating confirmation of an operation is input, the radiation imaging apparatus moves the one or more information input regions of the input region toward a prescribed region of the workflow region, and performs display using animation that sequences the movement of the one or more information input regions.

  • Patent number: 8849068
    Abstract: An image management system, image management method and program are provided that can favorably manage images for displaying images that underwent optimization processing or images for creating and displaying difference images in which the generation of artifacts is suppressed. An image from image generator 100 is input to server 109 and stored in storage device 105. The system then determines whether an image including attendant information that is the same as that of the input image is already registered in the system. When such an image is not already registered, attendant information included in the input image is read out and newly registered in association with the input image. In contrast, when an image including attendant information that is the same as that of the input image is registered in the system and the attendant information is registered, information indicating the fact that the image was input is registered.

  • Patent number: 8537971
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus having an X-ray detector and an image display unit comprises first and second display magnification calculation units and a selection unit. The first display magnification calculation unit receives information of the detected image size, a binning condition and a display frame size, and thereby calculating a first display magnification so as to maximize a display area of the detected image. The second display magnification calculation unit temporarily changes the received binning condition, and by using the temporarily changed binning condition and the received detected image size, and calculates a second display magnification so as to maximize a display area. The selection unit selects the first display magnifications and the temporarily change binning condition if the first display magnification is closer to one and the second display magnification with one.

  • Patent number: 8379796
    Abstract: A radiation imaging apparatus includes an imaging unit to capture a radiation image of an object, a discrimination unit to discriminate whether the current imaging mode is a mode of storing radiation images or a mode of storing no radiation image, a first calculation unit to calculate image size information, a second calculation unit to calculate image display region information indicating the size of an image display region, a first decision unit to decide a rotation condition for the rotation of an displayed image, and a second decision unit to decide an enlargement/reduction condition. If discriminated at the start of radiation irradiation that the current mode is the mode of storing no image, the second decision unit decides an enlargement/reduction condition from image size information and image display region information to maximize the ratio of an overall radiation image rotated under the rotation condition decided.
