  • Publication number: 20200327645
    Abstract: A medical information processing apparatus according to an embodiment includes processing circuitry. The processing circuitry calculates noise intensity from first data acquired during a first scan. The processing circuitry calculates a denoising intensity used for a denoising process based on the noise intensity and the difference between an imaging condition for the first scan and an imaging condition for a second scan, the denoising process being applied to second data obtained by the second scan.

  • Patent number: 9842121
    Abstract: A medical information processing apparatus includes an exam reservation information receiver and an image processor. The exam reservation information receiver receives exam reservation information for multiple image generating apparatuses, from an exam reservation apparatus. The image processor determines a type of image processing based on the received exam reservation information, and applies the determined type of image processing to original images as medical images generated by the multiple image generating apparatuses to generate a processing result image as the medical image.

  • Publication number: 20130204976
    Abstract: A medical image management system includes a plurality of servers, a determination means, a forwarding-destination determination part, and a forwarding processing means. The plurality of servers each comprise a memory that stores medical images to which supplementary information is attached, and performs image processing on medical images instructed by a client. The determination means determines whether or not to forward medical images based on the free space required for the image processing and the free space in the memory of the server. The forwarding-destination determination part determines a forwarding destination server to which the medical images are forwarded. The forwarding processing means forwards the medical images used for the image processing to the server determined by the forwarding-destination determination part.

  • Publication number: 20110152663
    Abstract: A medical image diagnostic apparatus includes an input unit to input personal information of a subject, a communication unit to communicate with a personal information managing server for storing the personal information, and a judge unit to judge whether the personal information can be transmitted to a personal information managing server. The communication unit transmits the personal information to the personal information managing server and receives personally-identifying information for identifying the personal information in response to the personal information transmitted, when the judge unit judges that the personal information can be transmitted. A memory for examination information stores the personally-identifying information.
