Then, an ultrasonic image included in the selected storage file is extracted based on a predetermined setting condition, and a plurality of thumbnail images are generated in time series by performing pixel thinning and reduction processing of the extracted ultrasonic image. The conditions for generating thumbnails here, for example, how many thumbnail images are generated from one moving image file, are set in advance. The generated thumbnail image is associated with the ultrasonic image in the main storage unit 8.

  The editing unit 10 groups the plurality of generated thumbnail images. For example, in the case of ultrasonic imaging in which the time measuring unit 5 is used as in contrast examination, thumbnails corresponding to ultrasonic images captured while the time measuring unit 5 is in the on state to the off state are used. Group images as a group.

  The thumbnail images are displayed in time series by the display device 7. Further, thumbnail images included in each group grouped by the editing unit 10 are displayed in association with each other according to the display form. The display device 7 displays the thumbnail images belonging to the same group so that each group can be visually recognized, for example, by attaching the same color frame. In addition to the color frame, a bar of a desired color may be attached on the thumbnail image, a frame with the same hatching may be attached to the thumbnail images belonging to the same group, or the same mark may be attached. These display forms are set by the control unit 11 that has received an operation from the operation unit 12.

  In the thumbnail display, as described above, the thumbnail image group corresponding to the ultrasonic image obtained from the on state to the off state of the time measuring unit 5 is automatically displayed as a group. By the grouped display, for example, it becomes easy to find a thumbnail image obtained by a specific contrast examination from the entire ultrasonic examination.

  The operator selects a desired thumbnail image via the operation unit 12 to display a corresponding full-data ultrasonic image on the display device 7 for use in diagnosis or the like (step ST8).

  For example, when it is desired to correct and add a grouping to the thumbnail display (step ST6), the operator selects a desired thumbnail image group via the operation unit 12 to perform grouping ( Step ST7). Information relating to grouping is stored in the main storage unit 8, and in the next thumbnail display, thumbnail display with new grouping added is performed.

  As described above, according to the display device 7 according to the present embodiment, among the thumbnail images displayed in a plurality of arrangements, a plurality of thumbnail images included in a series of ultrasonic imaging are displayed in association with each other according to the display form. Therefore, a series of related thumbnail images can be grasped at a glance from the entire thumbnail images.

  Therefore, according to the ultrasonic imaging apparatus provided with the display device 7 described above, since a series of related thumbnail images can be grasped at a glance from the entire thumbnail image, the ultrasonic image search after the imaging can be performed. Can be easily.

The present invention is not limited to the description of the above embodiment.
For example, even if the time measurement unit is not provided, the editing unit 10 can automatically perform grouping by inputting instructions for starting and ending ultrasonic imaging using the operation unit 12. In this case, the editing unit 10 may group a plurality of thumbnail images corresponding to the ultrasonic images included in the time between the start instruction and the end instruction input by the operation unit 12 as one group. Good.

  For example, in the present embodiment, the contrast inspection is described as an example, but there is no limitation on the inspection items to be manually grouped. For example, when ultrasonic imaging is performed before and after treatment, before treatment and after treatment may be displayed in groups. In addition, in the case of a stress echo examination of the heart, thumbnail images corresponding to ultrasonic images after returning to a steady state after applying stress, after applying stress, may be manually displayed in a group. Good.

Even in the case of manual grouping, for example, an operator who is involved in ultrasonic imaging manually edits after the inspection, so that the same or another operator passes the time from the inspection and uses the thumbnail image for the ultrasonic. It becomes easy to search for images.
In addition, various modifications can be made without departing from the scope of the present invention.
