  • Patent number: 10347035
    Abstract: A three-dimensional region of interest (ROI) is established with a high degree of accuracy, by a simple method without increasing a burden on the operator, in generating a three-dimensional projected image from medical volume data according to rendering, achieving more efficient interpretation of three-dimensional image and streamlining of diagnostic flow, with the use of the diagnostic image generation apparatus. An energy map is generated on a predetermined tomographic plane, assuming a preset start point as a reference and searching for a path that minimizes the energy, and then the path is set as a boundary of the three-dimensional ROI. The start point may be decided on the basis of the boundary inputted by a user, or the user may set the start point. The user may be allowed to adjust the boundary having been set. The boundary may also be determined on another plane orthogonal to the predetermined tomographic plane.

  • Publication number: 20190137589
    Abstract: In a diagnostic imaging device, such as an MRI device, correction processing improves an image to be a high-quality image and an imaging time is shortened. In the diagnostic imaging device, a noise reduction unit 201 reduces a noise in observation data acquired with an observation unit 100 and converted into an image, and the image correction unit 202 corrects the noise reduced data by correction processing that uses visual characteristics of human. The image correction unit 202 separates the noise reduced data into a broad luminance component and a local variation component, and generates a correction level map using the broad luminance component. Correcting the noise reduced data using this correction level map and the local variation component acquires a high-quality image that is competent in the clinical field.
