For example, there is an image processing in which image information obtained by overlaying temperature analysis image information on an image generated by internal structure analysis image information is generated, and image information in a certain temperature range is deleted from the generated image. It becomes possible. As a result, analysis of internal structure analysis image information and image processing can be performed more compoundly.

The internal structure analysis image information is mainly an image for analyzing the internal structure of the object. However, in the present invention, not only the internal structure of the object but also an external structure analysis image of the object may be used.

The first object image analyzing means for generating the internal structure analysis image information of the object acquires and generates the internal structure of the object as a planar (2D image) or a stereoscopic (3D image) image. It is made to do. The part (part) of the internal structure is composed of one or more parts, and the first object image analysis means acquires and generates image information of the part to be generated. When the first object image analysis unit acquires and generates the internal structure analysis image information of the object, any method (technology, apparatus) may be used as the acquisition method and generation method.

The first object image analysis means includes, for example, a transmission image technique (radiation transmission image generation technique, X-ray transmission image technique), a magnetic resonance image technique (MRI technique), and the like. However, the configuration of the first object image analysis means is not limited to the techniques and methods listed here, but a technique, device, which can analyze and analyze the internal structure of the object, and obtain and generate the analyzed image information. Any system can be used.

To do.

Here, the temperature analysis image information refers to image information acquired and generated by analyzing different temperatures depending on the part (part) of the object.

The second object image analyzing means for generating the temperature analysis image information of the object detects, for example, infrared radiation energy emitted from the object, converts it into an apparent temperature, and displays the temperature distribution as an image. It consists of analysis image technology (thermal analysis image technology). However, the second object image analysis means is not limited to the technique and method described here, and any technique, apparatus, or system that acquires and generates temperature analysis image information of the object can be used. It may be a thing.

The internal structure analysis image information of the object and the image information of the temperature analysis image information of the object may be a still image or a moving image. However, in the case of a moving image, it is preferable that the internal structure analysis image information of the object and the temperature analysis image information of the object are synchronized or synchronized.

The multilayer image generation means includes the internal structure analysis image information of the object generated by the first object image analysis means and the temperature analysis image information of the object generated by the second object image analysis means. Multi-layered image information is generated.

Here, “overlay” means to superimpose two or more pieces of image information.

When overlaying the internal structure analysis image information of the object and the temperature analysis image information of the object, the overlay image generation means can adjust the transparency of the overlaid image so that both image information can be recognized and confirmed There may be provided a means.

Further, the multi-layer image generation means may include means for freely replacing the upper and lower image information. And when the upper and lower image information is exchanged, a means for enabling adjustment of the transparency of the upper image may be provided.

The transplanting means uses part or all of the temperature analysis image information of the object generated by the second object image analysis means, and the internal structure analysis image information of the object generated by the first object image analysis means. In addition, transplant image information obtained by performing transplant (paste, synthesis) is generated.

As a matter of course, the transplanting means uses a part or all of the internal structure analysis image information of the object generated by the first object image analyzing means as the object generated by the second object image analyzing means. It is also possible to generate transplant image information obtained by performing transplantation on the temperature analysis image information.

The transplanting means, for example, extracts the temperature distribution information of the temperature analysis image information of the object divided into digital information bit units, and transplants (pastes) the extracted bit unit temperature distribution information into the internal structure analysis image information. The transplant image information is generated. However, the transplanting means is not limited to the method mentioned here, and generates transplantation image information in which part or all of the temperature analysis image information of the object is reflected in the internal structure analysis image information of the object. Any method may be used.

Note that the transplanting means may be provided as a part of the multilayer image generating means.

In this case, the second object image analysis means also includes, for example, transmission / reception means for receiving the data. The method for transmitting the data from the storage means to the second object image analyzing means may be any method as long as it is an information transmitting / receiving means. Further, the data providing means may simply include a transmitting means, and the second object image analyzing means may simply include a receiving means.

As a result, for example, when the multi-layer image generating means, the transplanting means, and the synchronizing means generate the image information or perform the processing of the internal structure analysis image information and the temperature analysis image information, the internal structure analysis image information and the temperature analysis If the information of the image information is analyzed and acquired under the same conditions, more accurate multi-layer image information, transplanted image information, and synchronized image information can be generated.
