  • Publication number: 20200205757
    Abstract: The present invention provides a scan gantry for a medical imaging system. The scan gantry comprises a bottom supporting frame and a tilt supporting frame that are connected to each other, wherein the tilt supporting frame is tiltable relative to the bottom supporting frame. The scan gantry further comprises a locking mechanism connected between the bottom supporting frame and the tilt supporting frame. In the process that the tilt supporting frame is being tilted relative to the bottom supporting frame, the locking mechanism is in an unlocked state; and when the tilt supporting frame is stationary relative to the bottom supporting frame, the locking mechanism is in a locked state to prevent the tilt supporting frame from moving relative to the bottom supporting frame.

  • Patent number: 10126941
    Abstract: This document describes tools associated with symbol entry control functions. In some implementations, the tools identify a first finger that is in tactile contact with a touch screen. The first finger can select a subset of symbols from a plurality of symbols that can be entered via the touch screen. The tools can also identify whether one or more other fingers are in concurrent tactile contact with the first finger on the touch screen. The tools can select an individual symbol from the subset based on whether the one or more other fingers are in concurrent tactile contact with the first finger on the touch screen.

  • Patent number: 9549706
    Abstract: A cradle drive mechanism, a table and a patient imaging and carrying apparatus are provided. The cradle drive mechanism includes: a first portion, which is arranged on a main base and has a belt drive structure, wherein the belt drive structure is used to connect a cradle and drive the cradle to make a reciprocating motion; a second portion, which is arranged on a secondary base and has a secondary supporting and rotating member, wherein the second portion and the first portion form a gap therebetween, and the secondary supporting and rotating member is used to support the cradle; and two guiding and rotating members, which are arranged on the second portion and/or the first portion for guiding the cradle to move linearly. The present application can simplify the structure by adoption of the belt drive structure. Further, the gap between the second portion and the first portion does not attenuate the X-ray additionally, so the dose of the X-ray emitted can be decreased.

  • Patent number: 9014341
    Abstract: A CT collimator comprising a rotating slot part on a rotation shaft and having a plurality of blades, each blade has a slot of a different width and a radiation beam entering the collimator can only pass via a slot in one of the blades, each edge of each blade slot along a longitudinal direction has a convex curved surface structure, and in a vertical plane along a longitudinal direction, two side edges of the slot are curved, and each blade is arranged to be eccentric to the center of the rotation shaft. A CT system using the CT collimator, the detection area of the radiation rays projected to the radiation detector via the CT collimator can be maintained unchanged by adjusting the rotation angle of the blade, under the circumstance where the focus of the radiation source shifts during a CT scan.
