Title: Operating method implemented through a user interface for a computed tomography examination

Abstract: In an operating method for user interface for a computed tomography examination procedure a menu and a workflow list are merged on a computer screen. One or more scanning programs can be selected in a parameter setting area on the computer screen, each scanning program corresponding to one default patient posture. When an "end of examination" option in the workflow list is selected, job status information is displayed in the parameter setting area, prompting an operator to check the status of the job selected in set reconstruction parameters. Using the interface the user can improve operational efficiency, thereby saving operational time and shortening time spent in examining each patient.
