Abstract

PURPOSE: To provide an ultrasonic sectional image of a high accuracy while maintaining favorable contact with a living organism in accordance with the changes in shape and size of the living organism by transmitting ultrasonic waves through a water containing gel to the living organism while sliding over the water containing gel and receiving the ultrasonic echo.
CONSTITUTION: Before diagnosis, water containing gel 30 is placed in close contact with the breast 10 and its surrounding area 20 of a subject. With the subject lying on its back, arranged vibration piece probe 520 is set to the diagnosis starting position on the water containing gel 30 placed in close contact with the breast 10 of the subject, and slides in a main scanning direction (Sn) over the water containing gel 30. Because the surface of the breast 10 is three dimensionally curved and expressed as z=f(x, y), a power factor sensor 590 detects during scanning over the surface of the breast 10 detects vertical changes of the arranged vibration probe 520, and a z-direction control section 570 makes the arranged vibration probe 520 move up and down by a small amount (Δz) so that the arranged vibration probe 520 comes in contact with the water containing gel 30 with a specified pressure according to the shape of the breast 10.
