  • Patent number: 10441229
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an X-ray CT apparatus includes a gantry, a table on which an object is placed, a bed, and processing circuitry. The gantry is equipped with an X-ray source and an X-ray detector. The bed includes a moving mechanism which is configured to move the table in a horizontal direction and in a vertical direction. The processing circuitry performs a main scan and a prescan. The prescan is performed prior to the main scan. The processing circuitry calculates displacement of the table in the vertical direction and also calculates an angle of the table from the horizontal direction using data acquired in the prescan, and controls a position of the table and an angle of the gantry based on the displacement of the table and the angle of the table.

  • Patent number: 9326740
    Abstract: A radiographic system is provided that can shorten the work time required for adjusting the initial values. The radiographic system comprises: an X-ray tube controller; an initial value calculator; and a storage. The X-ray tube controller is configured to control a filament current flowing through a filament of the X-ray tube for stabilizing the tube current at a desired value, the tube current otherwise tending to fluctuate at activation. The initial value calculator is configured to calculate an initial value for the filament current that is to be applied at next activation, based both on a stable value of the filament current while the tube current has been stable and on the image-capturing conditions at the time. The storage configured to store the calculated initial value, the image-capturing conditions, and a radiographic history that includes radiographed dates.

  • Patent number: 8914193
    Abstract: The magnitude of a linear damping coefficient Cs is set so as to decrease the greater a maximum amplitude value ? of an intermediate frequency sprung acceleration is. In the case where a damping force control apparatus carries out control for dampening vibrations of a sprung member using a nonlinear H-infinity control theory, the linear damping coefficient Cs is set to a high value when the maximum amplitude value ? of the intermediate frequency sprung acceleration inputted to a suspension apparatus is low. Accordingly, a requested damping force Freq also increases, which makes it possible to quickly dampen vibrations in the sprung member. Meanwhile, in the case where the maximum amplitude value ? of the intermediate frequency sprung acceleration is high, the linear damping coefficient Cs is set to a low value.
