BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a medical radiographic image interpretation apparatus, and more particularly to a medical radiographic image interpretation apparatus suitable for interpreting a large number of medical radiographic images while sequentially displaying them.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art In mass screening using a chest X-ray image, it is general to make a diagnosis using a roll film obtained by indirect imaging. For example, in group examinations such as lung cancer examinations and tuberculosis examinations, the images that are judged to be suspicious of disease at the time of the primary interpretation are read again (secondary interpretation).
And make a decision as to whether a more detailed examination is required. As a result of diagnosis, it is common to write the suspected disease and its position on a finding sheet as shown in FIG. In the secondary image interpretation, when an image taken in the past of the subject to be examined is recorded, usually, so-called comparative image interpretation is performed in which image interpretation is performed while comparing with the image of the past.

[0003]

As described above, in the secondary interpretation, it is effective to refer to the diagnostic result in the primary interpretation, the image taken in the past and the diagnostic result thereof. Particularly, the lung cancer examination and the tuberculosis examination are performed. It is obligatory to refer to past images in the secondary image interpretation. For this reason, it is necessary to extract only the necessary images from the film taken in the past or extract the past finding paper from the file. However, in a mass screening for interpreting and diagnosing a large number of images, such work requires a great deal of labor and time, and the diagnosis is delayed. In mass examinations, for example, statistical processing is often performed to check the detection rate for each disease, but in such a case, it is necessary to check each ledger one by one, which requires a lot of time. ing.

[0004] In particular, in the primary interpretation of lung cancer screening, two doctors usually perform the interpretation in order to reduce oversight. In this case, two doctors may read the image of one roll film at the same time,
Each doctor may read one by one in order.
In addition, since the results of diagnosis by two doctors may not necessarily match, it is common to perform a secondary image interpretation when it is determined that there is a suspicion of illness in either one. In this case, it is necessary to reassemble the diagnostic results by the two doctors and extract the image necessary for the secondary image interpretation from the roll film. However, in a mass screening for interpreting and diagnosing a large number of images, such work requires a great deal of labor and time, and the diagnosis is delayed.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a medical radiographic image interpretation apparatus which facilitates retrieval of past diagnostic results and enables efficient interpretation and statistical processing.
