  • Publication number: 20220031269
    Abstract: A medical image diagnosis apparatus according to an embodiment includes: a first supporting part, a second supporting part, and one or more columns. The first supporting part is configured to support an imaging system related to imaging a subject to be examined. The second supporting part is configured to support the first supporting part from underneath the first supporting part. The one or more columns are configured to support the second supporting part so as to be movable along a vertical direction.

  • Publication number: 20220022825
    Abstract: A medical image diagnosis apparatus according to an embodiment of the present disclosure includes: a gantry, one or more columns, a processing circuitry, and, and a supporting and moving mechanism. The gantry includes an imaging system related to imaging a patient. The one or more columns are each configured to support the gantry so as to be movable in a vertical direction. The processing circuitry generates an image on the basis of an output from the imaging system. The supporting and moving mechanism is configured to support the patient from underneath, while being installed so as to be movable in a direction intersecting the moving direction of the gantry. The processing circuitry controls the moving of the supporting and moving mechanism.

  • Patent number: 7502438
    Abstract: A receiving medium comprising N components is assigned to a channel comprising N components respectively and provided along the circumference around which a rotating frame rotates. At a position facing the receiving medium corresponding to the rotation, the transmission medium of M components (M?2N, N represents an integer more than 2) are arranged separately in a line along the circumference of the rotating frame. A signal generation device produces the signal containing data relating to an object obtained by detection of the X-ray detector device. When the transmission medium is rotated according to the carrier signal to face any of the receiving medium, a switching device transmits the signal from the channel to one of the corresponding receiving medium. When the interval between the two adjacent transmission medium passes through the receiving medium, the signal from the same channel may be transmitted to the two adjacent transmission medium.

  • Publication number: 20070165776
    Abstract: A receiving medium comprising N components is assigned to a channel comprising N components respectively and provided along the circumference around which a rotating frame rotates. At a position facing said receiving medium corresponding to the rotation, the transmission medium of M components (M>2N, N represents an integer more than 2) are arranged separately in a line along the circumference of the rotating frame in a state such as charge-coupling. A signal generation device produces the signal containing data relating to an object obtained by detection of the X-ray detector device, which is for example, a carrier signal modulated with the data.
