According to an embodiments, the invention relates to a n X-ray system (800) for taking an X-ray image of an object. The system comprises an X-ray source (808), an X-ray detector (811), depth camera(s) (801 ) covering at least an area covered by an X-ray bundle and configured to obtain depth images (852) and a client device (851) comprising a display adapted to display an impression image (854) to a user. The system further comprises a controller (850) configured to derive the impression image comprising a representation of this area from the depth images; and to obtain from the client device a first geometric position correction of the X-ray imaging system with respect to this impression image; and to convert the first geometric position correction (855) to an actual geometric position configuration (853) of the X-ray imaging system by an known relation between the one or more depth cameras and the X-ray imaging system.


The present invention relates to a method for triggering image capture by a group of simultaneously X-ray exposed multiple wirelessly interlinked self -triggering direct radiography (DR) detector assemblies, comprising the steps of performing an initiation step to identify said group of participating DR detector assemblies prior to X-ray exposure, detecting said X-ray exposure by a first participating DR detector assembly, said first participating DR detector assembly performing a trigger step to signal all participating DR detector assemblies to start image capture.

In a computer-implemented method of querying a data repository wherein a software image is generated of a at least one of a pre-compiled semantic reasoning engine, a set of pre-compiled fact data and pre-compiled reasoning rules. At runtime additional run time data and / or run time reasoning rules are loaded. A query is specified and solved by means of the software image and the additional run time data and / or runtime rules.

The motion correction method is a 2 step method. The first step comprises a global motion correction using the bilinear warping technique and a rough delineation of the lung fields. One of the native images (low energy image, high energy image) is deformed to match the other image. In a second step local motion corrections are applied to the globally motion corrected image by computing a proximity value in small overlapping tiles. Only tiles with a sufficient high proximity value are taken into account. The maximum shift applied in this second step is limited to a few pixels to avoid strong deformations of the native images.
