BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to an imaging apparatus and an imaging method used for, for example, a portable X-ray imaging apparatus using an X-ray flat panel sensor as imaging means.
[0002]
[Prior art]
Conventionally, for example, as an X-ray imaging apparatus, there is a portable X-ray imaging apparatus for imaging a patient who cannot be carried to an X-ray imaging room. This X-ray imaging apparatus includes an X-ray tube, a high-pressure generator, a battery, and the like, and is carried and used in a plurality of hospital rooms together with an imaging plate using a film cassette or a photostimulable fluorescent screen.
[0003]
On the other hand, in recent years, an X-ray imaging apparatus using an X-ray flat panel sensor made of amorphous silicon or the like instead of a film has been proposed. An X-ray imaging apparatus using such a sensor is
・ The captured image can be confirmed immediately after shooting.
-Multiple images can be taken with a single sensor.
-Image processing, image transfer, or filing as a digital image becomes easy.
It is thought that it will spread further in the future.
[0004]
FIG. 6 shows a configuration of an in-hospital X-ray imaging system 800 using an X-ray flat panel sensor.
In the hospital room here, as shown in FIG. 6, there are three general radiographing rooms 810 (1) to 810 (3), and each radiographing room 810 (1) to 810 (3) The standing position photographing apparatus and the standing position photographing apparatus controlled by the control unit are installed one by one.
For example, in the photographing room 810 (1), a standing photographing device 810 (1-a) and a standing photographing device 810 (1-b) are installed, and these standing photographing devices 810 (1-a). And the supine photographing apparatus 810 (1-b) is controlled by the control unit 820 (1).
[0005]
For the sake of simplicity, in the following description, any of the shooting rooms 810 (1) to 810 (3), the shooting rooms 810 (X) of the shooting rooms 810 (1) to 810 (3), In addition, attention is paid to the control unit (X), the standing position photographing apparatus 810 (X-a), and the lying position photographing apparatus 810 (X-b) related thereto.
[0006]
The control unit 820 (X) performs various types of image processing on the captured image obtained by photographing with the standing photographing device 810 (Xa) or the standing photographing device 810 (Xb), and performs the processing. The subsequent captured image is transmitted to the printer 830, the image filing device 840, the viewer 850, or the like via the image network 860.
[0007]
In addition to the above configuration, a network (RIS network) 880 for a radiation information system (RIS) is provided in the hospital.
The RIS information (RIS information) includes various information such as a patient name, patient ID, imaging region, number of images, imaging conditions, doctor name in charge. Such RIS information is transferred via the RIS network 880 to RIS terminals 870 (1) to 870 (3) provided corresponding to the imaging rooms 810 (1) to 810 (3).
[0008]
Accordingly, the photographer in the radiographing room 810 (X) uses the RIS terminal 870 (X) to confirm the patient to be radiographed, and then the standing radiographing apparatus 810 (Xa) or the supine radiographing apparatus 810 (Xb). Start shooting with.
[0009]
At this time, the control device 820 (X) sends a patient to the standing imaging device 810 (X-a) and the supine imaging device 810 (X-b) based on the RIS information from the RIS terminal 870 (X). Name, patient ID, imaging region, imaging conditions, etc. are automatically set.
Similarly, the control device 820 (X) also applies to the X-ray generator (not shown) based on the RIS information from the RIS terminal 870 (X), the X-ray tube voltage, the X-ray tube current, and the imaging time. , X-ray diaphragm etc. are automatically set.
[0010]
When the photographing in the photographing room 810 (X) (photographing based on the various automatic settings described above) is completed, the control unit 820 (X) displays the standing photographing device 810 (X-a) or the standing photographing device. RIS information from the RIS terminal 870 (X) is added as supplementary information to the photographed image obtained at 810 (X-b), and the photographed image after the supplementary information is added, for example, as a medical image transfer protocol Using standard DICOM (Digital Imaging & Communication in Medicine) 3.0 or the like, the data is transferred to the printer 830, the image filing device 840, or the viewer 850 via the image network 860. This completes the series of shooting.
[0011]
As described above, in the imaging room 810 (X), the RIS terminal 870 (1) on the RIS network 880, the standing position imaging apparatus 810 (X-a) and the supine position imaging apparatus 810 (in the imaging room 810 (X) X-b), the printer 830, the image filing device 840, the viewer 850, etc. on the image network 860 function organically, contributing to labor saving and automation of X-ray imaging.
[0012]
On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 6 above, a portable X-ray imaging apparatus 900 that carries a set of devices to a hospital room and cannot capture images cannot be connected to other devices via a network or the like. Various methods have been proposed to match information (patient information) related to a patient as a subject and various imaging conditions.
[0013]
For example, in a portable X-ray imaging apparatus using a film cassette, the following method is adopted as a method for matching patient information, imaging conditions, and the like with a captured image.
First, the doctor in charge of the patient writes the examination site of the patient in the examination request form, and sends the examination request form to the person in charge of radiography (radiologist).
Next, the radiologist who has received the examination request form creates an ID imprint card on which the patient name, patient ID, date of birth, examination site, etc. are written based on the examination request form.
When the imaging of the patient is completed, the radiologist writes the information on the ID copying card on the film by the information copying device. Thereby, the captured image on the film can be matched with the patient information.
[0014]
[Problems to be solved by the invention]
However, the captured image on the film used in the conventional portable X-ray imaging apparatus as described above, information on the patient who is the subject of the captured image (patient information), various imaging conditions, and the like. In the method for matching, since the amount of information that can be written on the ID imprint card is limited in space, only the minimum necessary information can be imprinted on the film. Therefore, there is a problem that sufficient information about the patient or the like corresponding to the captured image is not transmitted to the radiogram interpreter.
In addition, since this method is a method of writing information in an analog manner, it is not suitable for searching, filing, and the like today as digitization progresses.
[0015]
Therefore, in order to solve the above-mentioned problem, for example, in Japanese Patent Publication No. 06-202254, etc., a radiographic image and radiation information (patient) in a portable X-ray imaging apparatus using a storage phosphor as follows. A method for matching information, etc.) has been proposed.
In this method, first, a nonvolatile memory that can be read from the outside is attached to the cassette, and a patient identification code, a storage phosphor identification code, an imaging region, an imaging condition, and the like are read by a portable barcode reader before imaging. To write to the non-volatile memory. And simultaneously with reading an image with an imaging device, radiation information is read from the said non-volatile memory, and this radiation information is finally added to an image.
According to this method, images and radiation information can always be matched, and when a cassette using a stimulable phosphor is carried to multiple hospital rooms and it is not clear which cassette will be used until shooting, the captured image It is effective to match the radiation information after imaging.
[0016]
However, in the method described in Japanese Patent Publication No. 06-202254, etc., when a lot of information is necessary as radiation information, the photographer or the like needs to read the information with a bar code reader. The larger the radiation information, the greater the burden on the photographer, which is very inconvenient.
[0017]
Therefore, the present invention has been made to eliminate the above-described drawbacks, and it is possible to easily, efficiently, and reliably match a captured image with information related to the shooting (shooting information). Another object of the present invention is to provide a recording medium in which a computer stores a photographic device, a photographing system, a photographing method, and processing steps for implementing the photographing device in a readable manner.
[0018]

It is connected so as to be able to communicate with are.
[0038]
The portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 takes advantage of the feature that a digital photographed image can be obtained directly after photographing, particularly by using the X-ray flat sensor 309, and the digital photographed image directly after photographing and information on the subject. And can be matched with each other.
[0039]
In the X-ray imaging system 100 as described above, processing for X imaging and captured images is performed as follows.
The operation of the X-ray imaging system 100 described below (imaging operations indicated by “S201” to “S203” in FIG. 1) is stored in the storage unit 105 or 312 by the central control unit 302, for example. This is realized by reading and executing the processed processing program.
[0040]
Step S201:
When performing X imaging using the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107, first, RIS information (imaging information) is written into the portable storage medium 102 from the RIS terminal 101 connected to the RIS network 108.
The imaging information here includes all information related to imaging of the subject to be imaged, such as an identifier (patient ID) indicating a patient as a subject, patient name, date of birth, sex, imaging region, imaging conditions, and the like.
The portable storage medium 102 in which the imaging information is written is inserted into a portable storage medium reading unit 104 provided in the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107.
[0041]
Step S202:
The photographer carries the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 to a hospital room where a patient to be imaged is waiting.
[0042]
When the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 carried into the patient's room is turned on by the radiographer, the central control unit 302 records in the portable storage medium 102 in the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 (see FIG. 2 above). The acquired imaging information is taken into the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 by the portable storage medium reading unit 104.
[0043]
The central control unit 302 causes the display unit 303a of the operation unit 303 to display, as an imaging list, information related to the patient among the imaging information mixed in the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 via the display / input interface 304. .
As the display portion 303a here, a display portion having a touch panel type liquid crystal display function is used.
[0044]
FIG. 3 shows an example of the display screen of the display unit 303a at this time.
The photographer confirms the name of the patient to be imaged by referring to the imaging list as shown in FIG. 3, and displays the imaging number associated with the patient (“No” in FIG. 3 above). Select above. This selection information is recognized by the central control unit 302.
Instead of selecting the appropriate imaging number after the photographer confirms the patient name, the barcode label for patient identification attached to the patient's arm etc. is read by the barcode reader and automatically selected from the imaging patient list It is also possible to do.
[0045]
The central control unit 302 sends all the shooting information corresponding to the shooting number indicated by the selection information (all shooting information including shooting conditions) to the display unit 303a of the operation unit 303 via the display / input interface 304. Display.
[0046]
FIG. 4 shows an example of the display screen of the display unit 303a at this time.
As shown in FIG. 4, the display unit 303a displays patient information corresponding to the selected imaging number, an imaging region, imaging conditions, and the like.
Here, as an example, the imaging region is “thoracic cage” and the imaging conditions are “70 kV, 500 mA, 50 ms”.
[0047]
In addition, the central control unit 302 captures imaging conditions (X-ray tube voltage, X-ray tube current, imaging time, etc.) included in imaging information captured from the portable storage medium 102, that is, imaging information obtained by the RIS terminal 101. ) Is set for the X-ray high-voltage power supply 306 via the X-ray control unit 305. As a result, the X-ray tube 307 can irradiate X-rays under imaging conditions instructed from the RIS terminal 101 during imaging.
Note that the photographing conditions here can be partially changed by the photographer at the photographing site, for example, by a predetermined operation on the operation unit 303.
[0048]
Then, the central control unit 302 causes the X-ray flat sensor 309 to transition to the imaging ready state via the X-ray flat sensor control device 308. In this state, preparation for shooting is completed.
[0049]
The photographer presses the first stage of an X-ray irradiation switch (not shown) provided on the operation unit 303. Thereby, the rotor (not shown) in the X-ray tube 307 starts to rotate.
When the photographer recognizes that the rotor has reached a steady state, the photographer presses the second stage of the X-ray irradiation switch. As a result, X-rays are immediately emitted from the X-ray tube 307 to the patient, and a captured image of the patient is recorded in the X-ray flat sensor 309.
[0050]
When the X-ray flat sensor 309 detects the end of the X-ray irradiation, the X-ray flat sensor 309 starts reading out the charges of the captured image accumulated in the sensor.
The X-ray flat sensor control unit 308 amplifies the charges read from the X-ray flat sensor 309 and digitizes them, and then supplies the digital data to the central control unit 302.
[0051]
The central control unit 302 temporarily accumulates digital data (captured image data) from the X-ray flat sensor control unit 308 in the storage unit 312, and compensates for sensor dark current with respect to the accumulated data (captured image data). Processing such as gain correction, defective pixel correction, frequency processing, and gradation processing is performed for each.
At this time, the central control unit 302 adds shooting information acquired from the RIS terminal 101 via the portable storage medium 102 as supplementary information to the shot image data after the above processing, and finally a storage medium such as a hard disk Write to 105.
[0052]
When shooting is actually performed by changing the shooting information (shooting conditions) acquired from the RIS terminal 101 via the portable storage medium 102, the changed shooting information is added to the shot image data as supplementary information. . In this case, a process of writing the changed shooting information into the portable storage medium 102 is also performed.
[0053]
The imaging operation as described above is repeatedly executed for all patients (all patients instructed from the RIS terminal 101) indicated by the imaging list as shown in FIG.
[0054]
Step S203:
When imaging for all the patients is completed, the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 is carried to a station capable of network connection.
Then, the portable storage medium 102 is removed from the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 and set in the RIS terminal 101.
[0055]
The RIS terminal 101 reads the recording information (imaging information at the time of actual photographing) of the set portable storage medium 102 and transfers the recording information to the RIS workstation (not shown) via the RIS network 108. To notify the end of all shooting.
At the same time, in the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107, the central control unit 302 converts the captured image stored in the storage unit 105 into the network connection interface 310, the network connection connector 311, the image network connector 103, and the image network 106. Are sequentially transferred to an image filing device, a printer, or the like.

A portable storage reading unit 104 for reading information is provided in the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107, and the portable X-ray imaging apparatus 107 performs imaging based on imaging information read by the portable storage reading unit 104, and immediately thereafter. The shooting information is added to the shot image. Thereby, it is possible to easily and efficiently match the photographed image with information related to photographing of the subject (patient) without imposing a burden on the photographer.
Further, the captured image with the shooting information added is stored in the storage unit 105, and after all the shootings are completed, the storage information (the shot image data with the shooting information added) in the storage unit 105 is stored in the network connection interface 310 or the network connection connector. 311 is transferred to an image filing device, a printer, or the like, and the photographing information is transferred to a RIS workstation (RIS server) by the portable storage medium 102, the RIS terminal 101, or the like. Thereby, filing of a photographed image and the like can be performed easily and efficiently.
[0057]
