  • Patent number: 10976397
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an MRI apparatus includes a memory storing a predetermined program and processing circuitry. The processing circuitry configured, by executing the predetermined program, to generate a first image based on first data acquired from an object with Ultrashort TE (UTE), generate a second image based on second data acquired from the object with non-UTE, generate a mask image from the second image, and perform mask processing, by using the mask image, to remove or reduce an undesired signal around the object depicted in the first image.

  • Publication number: 20180064403
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a medical image diagnostic apparatus includes a display and processing circuitry. The display displays a relationship diagram indicating a relationship between values which are respectively set for imaging parameters relating to an imaging condition of medical imaging. The processing circuitry updates the relationship diagram in accordance with a moving operation of a point corresponding to each of the values on the relationship diagram, or a change operation of the imaging condition. The processing circuitry changes the imaging condition before the moving operation or the change operation to an imaging condition which reflects the moving operation or the change operation.

  • Publication number: 20140236012
    Abstract: Ultrasound diagnosis apparatus is provided which easily recreates test conditions same as the past, comprising scanner, signal processor, display controller, storage, detector, collator, and controller. Scanner scans a subject with ultrasound waves through ultrasound probe. Storage previously stores first relevant information in which operation of the scanner, the signal processor, or the display controller in past test is related to a first relative position which is the relative position of ultrasound probe for the subject in the same past test. Detector detects a second relative position which is the present relative position of ultrasound probe for the subject. Collator collates the first relative position and the second relative position detected by the detector. Controller controls the scanner, the signal processor or the display controller based on the operation related to the first relative position, when the first relative position and the second relative position are matched in collation.
