  • Publication number: 20210315540
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus includes processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to acquire a current position information of an ultrasonic probe in three-dimensional space. The processing circuitry is further configured to switch from a body mark indicating one body part to a body mark indicating the other body part, when a body mark indicating one body part of a pair of left and right body parts is displayed, and when the ultrasonic probe is positioned at a position farther than a predetermined distance from a midpoint of the pair of left and right body parts toward the other body part.

  • Publication number: 20200330074
    Abstract: An ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus according to an embodiment includes a processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to display, as a live image, an image that data output from an ultrasonic probe represents; recognize an image type of the live image; extract, out of past data collected before the live image, data at least a part of which is in common to the image type of the live image; and display an image that the extracted data represents on the same screen as that of the live image.

  • Publication number: 20190320992
    Abstract: The X-ray diagnostic apparatus according to a present embodiment includes processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to: generate an X-ray image of an object by irradiating the object with X-rays; acquire an evaluation result of at least one of elasticity evaluation of a blood vessel of the object and thickness evaluation of a wall of the blood vessel of the object; generate a superimposed image in which the evaluation result is superimposed on the X-ray image; and display the superimposed image on a display.

  • Patent number: 10417778
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus includes memory circuitry configured to store a program and processing circuitry configured, by executing the program, to perform alignment between one of live images and one of reference images. The live images include a fundamental image and a harmonic image both of which are acquired by contrast imaging, the reference images are acquired prior to the live images, and the alignment is performed by using the fundamental image as one of the live images.

  • Publication number: 20190239859
    Abstract: The medical image diagnostic apparatus according to a present embodiment includes processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to display an ultrasonic image and a non-ultrasonic medical image to a display. The processing circuitry is configured to determine which of a displayed ultrasonic image and a displayed non-ultrasonic medical image is live. The processing circuitry is configured to inform information indicating which any one of the displayed ultrasonic image and the displayed non-ultrasonic medical image is live in accordance with the determination.

  • Publication number: 20180028148
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an ultrasound diagnosis apparatus includes an acquisition unit and an individual image generating unit. The acquisition unit acquires multiple cross-sectional image data that are ultrasound image data for simultaneously displaying a plurality of cross sections of a subject. The individual image generating unit generates individual image data for each of the cross sections based on the position information of the cross section along with the display of the multiple cross-sectional image data.
