1. A medical diagnostic imaging apparatus comprising a scanner that images an imaging target site of an object and generates medical image data, wherein:
the scanner is configured to:
acquire a detection target site corresponding to a required imaging target site from a table in which multiple imaging target sites are associated with multiple detection target sites of the object, respectively,
acquire biological information from a sensor configured to detect the biological information at the required detection target site, the acquired biological information changing according to a movement of the acquired detection target site,
identify a start of movement of the object based on the acquired biological information, and
start an imaging of the imaging target site based on the identified start of movement of the object.
