Patent Searching and Data

Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP6405054
Kind Code:
An MRI system (100) acquires magnetic resonance data (158, 168) from a subject. The execution of machine-executable instructions (180, 182, 184, 186, 188) causes a processor (144) to: receive (300) a baseline medical image (152) data descriptive of one or more internal structures (126) of the subject; receive (302) a baseline scan geometry (154); acquire (304) survey magnetic resonance data (158) from the subject by controlling the magnetic resonance imaging system with survey pulse sequence data, wherein the survey pulse sequence data comprises instructions for controlling the magnetic resonance imaging system to acquire magnetic resonance data descriptive of a three-dimensional volume (124) of the subject; reconstruct (306) the survey magnetic resonance data into a three-dimensional survey image (160); calculate (308) location data by processing the three dimensional survey image with an organ detection algorithm (182), wherein the location data is descriptive of a target region (128); assign (310) a predefined region of interest (130) to the three dimensional survey image using the location data; calculate (312) registration data (164) by registering the baseline medical image to the three dimensional survey image.
