  • Publication number: 20210100519
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer-readable storage medium storing a program causes a computer to perform an analysis process based on a radiation moving image in which a dynamic state of a specific site of a subject is captured. The program includes the analysis process in which, an analysis is performed based on the radiation moving image wherein when a plane in which the specific site is movable is to be a movable plane, the radiation moving image is obtained by irradiating radiation on the specific site in a state in which the radiation is orthogonal to the movable plane.

  • Patent number: 10765391
    Abstract: A dynamic analysis system includes a hardware processor. A first plurality of frame images showing a dynamic state of a chest of an intubated first examinee is obtained by radiation imaging of the chest of the first examinee.
