  FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram showing an overall configuration of an in-vivo information acquiring system according to the present embodiment. As shown in FIG. 1, the in-vivo information acquiring system according to the present embodiment is introduced into a body of a receiving device 2 having a receiving function and the subject 1, and captures an in-vivo image to the receiving device 2. And a capsule endoscope 3 for transmitting data. The in-subject information acquisition system also performs image transfer between the image display device 4 that displays an image in the body cavity based on data received by the reception device 2 and the reception device 2 and the image display device 4. A portable recording medium 5. The receiving device 2 includes a receiving jacket 2a worn by the subject 1 and an external device 2b that performs processing of radio signals transmitted and received through the receiving jacket 2a.

  The image display device 4 is for displaying an in-vivo image captured by the capsule endoscope 3 and includes a workstation that displays an image based on data obtained by the portable recording medium 5. The image display device 4 sequentially displays a plurality of still images captured by the capsule endoscope 3. Hereinafter, the sequentially displayed images are referred to as pseudo moving images.

  The portable recording medium 5 is detachable with respect to the external device 2b and the image display device 4, and has a structure capable of outputting or recording information when attached to both. Specifically, the portable recording medium 5 is inserted into the external device 2 b and transmitted from the capsule endoscope 3 while the capsule endoscope 3 is moving in the body cavity of the subject 1. Record the data. Then, after the capsule endoscope 3 is ejected from the subject 1, that is, after the imaging of the inside of the subject 1 is finished, the capsule endoscope 3 is taken out from the external device 2b and inserted into the image display device 4, and the image is displayed. Data recorded by the display device 4 is read out. The data exchange between the external device 2b and the image display device 4 is performed between the external device 2b and the image display device 4 in addition to the configuration performed by the portable recording medium 5 such as a compact flash (registered trademark) memory. It is also possible to take a wired connection configuration.

  Here, the image display device 4 will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 2 is a block diagram showing a schematic configuration of the image display device 4 shown in FIG. As shown in FIG. 2, the image display device 4 includes an input unit 20, a display unit 30, a storage unit 40, and a control unit 50.

  The input unit 20 is realized by a pointing device such as a keyboard or a mouse, and inputs an operation instruction of the image display device 4 and instruction information of processing performed by the image display device 4, and sends each instruction information to the control unit 50. The input unit 20 inputs selection information for selecting a desired reduced image from the reduced images displayed on the display unit 30. For example, when the reduced image is selected by clicking the left button of the mouse of the input unit 20, the input unit 20 inputs selection information for selecting the reduced image. Further, the input unit 20 inputs moving image instruction information for instructing display of a moving image including a desired reduced image. For example, when a reduced image is selected by double-clicking the left button of the mouse of the input unit 20, the input unit 20 inputs moving image instruction information for instructing display of a moving image starting from a desired reduced image.

  The display unit 30 is realized by a CRT display, a liquid crystal display, or the like, and displays instruction information or an instruction result of the input unit 20. The display unit 30 selects a predetermined pseudo moving image display area in which images of the image group Pa stored in the folder F1 of the storage unit 40 are sequentially displayed and a selection image group Pb stored in the folder F2 of the storage unit 40. And a predetermined reduced image display area in which a reduced image of the image is displayed.

  The storage unit 40 is realized by a hard disk device, for example, and holds various images. For example, in the folder F1, an image group Pa captured by the capsule endoscope 3 is stored. In the folder F2, a selected image group Pb selected in advance from the image group Pa stored in the folder F1 is stored. In addition, you may make it discriminate | determine whether it is a selection image by giving a predetermined flag to the image selected beforehand among the image groups Pa stored in the folder F1. The image group Pa stored in the folder F1 is assigned a frame number for each image according to the order of reception of the image data in the receiving device 2.

  The control unit 50 controls each process or operation of the input unit 20, the display unit 30, and the storage unit 40. The control unit 50 includes a display control unit 51 having a selected image extraction unit 52. Based on the selection information input from the input unit 20, the selection image extraction unit 52 extracts an image for the reduced image selected by the selection information from the image group Pa of the folder F1. The display control unit 51 has a function of controlling display processing in the display unit 30, and displays images of the image group Pa on the display unit 30 sequentially in the order of frame numbers as pseudo moving images. For this reason, the frame number assigned to each image of the image group Pa is a display number corresponding to the display order on the display unit 30. The display control unit 51 displays the image extracted by the selected image extraction unit 52 in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30 as an image larger than the reduced image displayed in the reduced image display area. The display control unit 51 switches at least one of the images displayed in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30 to the image extracted by the selected image extracting unit 52, and displays this image in the pseudo moving image display area. To display.

  In addition, when the moving image instruction information is input from the input unit 20, the selected image extraction unit 52 includes a continuous image together with an instruction image that is an image corresponding to a reduced image specified by the moving image instruction information from the image group Pa. As a result, a predetermined number of images are extracted in order of closeness to the frame number. For example, when moving image instruction information for instructing display of a moving image starting from a desired reduced image is input, the selected image extraction unit 52, together with the image for the reduced image specified by the moving image instruction information, A predetermined number of images having a later frame number are extracted. The display control unit 51 generates a moving image based on the instruction image and the continuous image extracted by the selected image extraction unit 52. The display control unit 51 switches to a moving image generated at least one of images sequentially displayed in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30 and displays the moving image in the pseudo moving image display area.

  Next, an image display processing procedure by the control unit 50 will be described with reference to FIG. In FIG. 3, the control unit 50 determines whether or not there is instruction information for instructing the pseudo moving image display of the image group Pa from the input unit 20 (step S102). The control unit 50 repeats the determination in step S102 until there is instruction information for instructing the pseudo moving image display. When the control unit 50 determines that there is instruction information for instructing pseudo moving image display (step S102: Yes), the display control unit 51 reads out the selected image group Pb stored in the folder F2 of the storage unit 40 and reduces it. A reduced image of the selected image read out is displayed in the image display area (step S104). The display control unit 51 initializes the frame number of the image indicating the display target image and sets it to 0 (step S106). The display control unit 51 reads the image group Pa instructed to display the pseudo moving image from the folder F1.

  The display control unit 51 displays the next display target image in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30 based on the frame number of the display target image, and causes the display unit 30 to display the pseudo moving image ( Step S108). The display control unit 51 adds a numerical value corresponding to the number of images displayed in the pseudo moving image display area to the frame number of the image (step S110). The display control unit 51 adds 2 to the frame number when two images are displayed in the pseudo moving image display area.

  After that, the display control unit 51 determines whether there is instruction information for instructing the end of image display from the input unit 20 (step S112). If there is this instruction information (step S112: Yes), The image display on the display unit 30 is terminated. On the other hand, when the display control unit 51 determines that there is no instruction information for instructing the end of image display from the input unit 20 (step S112: No), the display unit 30 is the image instructed to display the pseudo moving image. It is determined whether or not the final image of the group Pa has been displayed (step S114). When the display control unit 51 determines that the display unit 30 has displayed the final image of the image group Pa (step S114: Yes), the display control unit 51 ends the pseudo moving image display in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30.

  On the other hand, if the display control unit 51 determines that the final image of the image group Pa has not been displayed (step S114: No), the reduced image display area is determined based on the presence / absence of the selection information input from the input unit 20. It is determined whether or not there is a selection of the reduced image displayed in (Step S116). If the display control unit 51 determines that no reduced image has been selected (step S116: No), the display control unit 51 proceeds to step S108, and selects the next image to be displayed in the image group Pa as a pseudo moving image on the display unit 30. The image is displayed in the display area, and the display unit 30 displays the pseudo moving image (step S108).

  If the display control unit 51 determines that there is a reduction image selection (step S116: Yes), the display control unit 51 selects the reduction image selected based on the presence / absence of the moving image instruction information input from the input unit 20. It is determined whether or not there is an instruction to display a moving image including the image (step S118).

  When the display control unit 51 determines that there is no instruction to display a moving image including the selected reduced image (step S118: No), the selected image extraction unit 52 selects from the image group Pa of the folder F1. An image corresponding to the reduced image selected by the information is extracted (step S120). The display control unit 51 performs display switching processing for switching at least one of the images displayed in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30 to the image extracted by the selected image extraction unit 52 (step S122). The unit 51 displays the image extracted by the selected image extraction unit 52 in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30. In this case, the image corresponding to the reduced image selected by the selection information is not reduced, but is displayed in the same size as other images displayed in the pseudo moving image display area. Thereafter, the process proceeds to step S108, in which the next image to be displayed in the image group Pa is displayed in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30, and the display unit 30 displays the pseudo moving image (step S108). In this case, one of the image groups Pa displayed in the pseudo moving image display area is an image corresponding to the reduced image selected by the selection information, and therefore, the image group Pa displayed in the pseudo moving image display area. The number of images is reduced by one compared to before the reduced image is selected. Alternatively, after step S122, the moving image display in the pseudo moving image display area may be paused until a user instruction is given.

  On the other hand, if the display control unit 51 determines that there is an instruction to display a moving image for the selected image (step S118: Yes), the selected image extraction unit 52 instructs the reduced image selected by the moving image instruction information. A continuous image is extracted together with the image (step S126). The display control unit 51 generates a moving image based on the instruction image and the continuous image extracted by the selected image extraction unit 52 (step S128). The display control unit 51 performs a display switching process for switching to a moving image that has generated at least one of the images displayed in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30 (step S130). The obtained moving image is displayed in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30. In this case, the moving image corresponding to the generated reduced image is displayed in the same size as other images displayed in the pseudo moving image display area, not in a reduced state. Thereafter, the process proceeds to step S108, in which the next image to be displayed in the image group Pa is displayed in the pseudo moving image display area of the display unit 30, and the display unit 30 displays the pseudo moving image (step S108). In this case, one of the images in the image group Pa displayed in the pseudo moving image display area is a moving image corresponding to the reduced image selected by the moving image instruction information, and thus is displayed in the pseudo moving image display area. The number of images in the image group Pa is automatically reduced by one as compared with that before selection of a reduced image. Alternatively, all the images displayed in the pseudo moving image display area may be switched to the moving image generated in step S128.

  Next, with reference to FIG. 4, an image display process for the selected reduced image on the display screen of the display unit 30 will be described. FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating an example of the display screen of the display unit 30, and a window W is displayed on the display screen of the display unit 30. The window W is roughly provided with a pseudo moving image display area A1 and a reduced image display area A2. In the pseudo moving image display area A1, the image group Pa stored in the folder F1 is sequentially displayed. In the reduced image display area A2, reduced images corresponding to images previously selected from the image group Pa are displayed according to the order of imaging. The user changes the reduced image displayed in the reduced image display area A2 by operating the mouse of the input unit 20 and moving the slider Sa up and down.

  When the start of the pseudo moving image display of the image group Pa is instructed by clicking the playback button 24 with the mouse, the images of the image group Pa are sequentially displayed every two images in the pseudo moving image display area A1, and the reduced image display is performed. In the area A2, a reduced image of the selected image of the selected image group Pb is displayed.

  The case where the user selects the reduced image Pe21 displayed in the reduced image display area A2 will be described as an example. In this case, the user operates the mouse to move the cursor 23 onto the desired reduced image Pe21 and clicks the left button. As a result, the input unit 20 inputs selection information for selecting the reduced image Pe21 to the control unit 50. Receiving this selection information, the selected image extraction unit 52 extracts an image P21 for the reduced image Pe21 selected by the selection information from the image group Pa. In the display control unit 51, the selected image extraction unit 52 extracts, for example, one image displayed in the left region of the pseudo moving image display region A1 from the two images displayed in the pseudo moving image display region A1. Switching to the image P21, this image P21 is displayed in the left area of the pseudo moving image display area A1.

  As a result, as shown by the arrow Y1 in FIG. 5, the image P21 corresponding to the reduced image Pe21 selected by the user is displayed in the left side area A3 of the pseudo moving image display area A1 in the same manner as the image displayed in the pseudo moving image display area A1. Is displayed in the size of. In the right area of the pseudo moving image display area A1, an image P13 having the next frame number of the images P11 and P12 is displayed. When the user double-clicks on the reduced image Pe21, moving image instruction information for instructing a moving image starting from the reduced image Pe21 is input to the control unit 50 from the input unit 20. In this case, the selected image extraction unit 52 and the display control unit 51 generate a moving image based on the image P21 corresponding to the reduced image Pe21 and a predetermined number of images that are frames after the image P21. The generated moving image is displayed in the left area A3 of the pseudo moving image display area A1 in the same size as P13 displayed in the pseudo moving image display area A1.

  As described above, according to the image display apparatus according to the first embodiment, an image corresponding to the reduced image selected by the user is automatically displayed as a pseudo moving image with an image larger than the reduced image displayed in the reduced image display area. Since the image is displayed in the display area, the user can reconfirm the reduced image selected by the user in an enlarged state without performing complicated processing such as image search. For this reason, according to the first embodiment, particularly when the user confirms the captured image and confirms the captured image again with reference to the selected image after the user confirms the captured image and selects the image. The user can smoothly check the image.

  As shown in FIG. 5, the display control unit 51 may display a marker Ma indicating that the image corresponds to the reduced image selected by the user in the vicinity of the image P21 displayed in the left region. . As a result, the user can easily visually recognize which of the images P21 and P13 displayed in the pseudo moving image display area A1 is the image corresponding to the selected reduced image. The display control unit 51 displays a frame C surrounding the selected reduced image Pe21 on the reduced image display area A2. As a result, the user can easily visually recognize which of the reduced images displayed in the reduced image display area A2 corresponds to the image P21 displayed in the pseudo moving image display area A1. Further, as shown in FIGS. 4 and 5, markers Ma and Mb color-coded for each processing content for the reduced image may be displayed in the vicinity of the reduced image displayed in the reduced image display area A2. For example, the marker Ma displays an image selected by the user, and the marker Mb displays that it is an image used for creating a medical certificate or the like by the user. Furthermore, the marker displayed in the vicinity of the image P21 displayed in the left area A3 of the pseudo moving image display area A1 may be displayed in correspondence with the markers Ma and Mb displayed in the vicinity of the corresponding reduced image.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 6, icons Ia and Ib may be displayed on the reduced images displayed in the reduced image display area A2, respectively. The icon Ia displays the time when the image corresponding to the reduced image is captured. When the icon Ia is clicked, the icon Ia2 changes to an icon Ia2 that displays the date on which the image corresponding to the reduced image is captured, and when the icon Ia is double-clicked, the imaging part of the image corresponding to the reduced image is displayed. The icon changes to Ia3. The icon Ib indicates that a comment is added by the user, and the comment by the user is displayed by clicking the icon Ib.

(Embodiment 2)
Next, a second embodiment will be described. In the second embodiment, the selected image having the frame number closest to the frame number of the image displayed in the pseudo moving image display area is reduced and displayed in accordance with the pseudo moving image displayed in the pseudo moving image display area. However, the selected image having the closest frame number to the simulated moving image displayed in the simulated moving image display area can be easily visually recognized.
