Claim of US Patent No. 10,363,357

1. A system for contrast agent-based medical imaging, comprising:a gantry of a medical imaging device;
a contrast agent injection device; and
a support arm including a frame element, a first connecting element and a second connecting element,
wherein the frame element is connected to a stationary support frame of the gantry via the first connecting element such that at least part of the frame element is mounted to be movable relative to the stationary support frame of the gantry, and wherein the contrast agent injection device is connected to at least part of the frame element via the second connecting element such that the contrast agent injection device is mounted to be movable relative to at least part of the frame element, wherein at least one of
the first connecting element includes a first mounting region,
the frame element is mounted by way of the first mounting region so as to be rotatable about a first axis of rotation relative to the stationary support frame of the gantry, and
the first connecting element includes a second mounting region, wherein the frame element is mountable by way of the second mounting region so as to be tiltable about a first tilt axis relative to the stationary support frame of the gantry.
