  • Patent number: 10429457
    Abstract: In a method for operating a medical imaging apparatus in which an examination object is situated, information is detected indicating that at least one image of the examination object is to be created by the medical device. Next, a selection of an examination sequence is made from multiple stored, predefined examination sequences, and subsequently a detection occurs as to the step in the selected examination sequence at which the medical device is currently operating. Thereafter, a specification of the next step to be undertaken from the selected examination sequence is presented to a person operating the medical imaging apparatus.
