  • Publication number: 20210219960
    Abstract: An ultrasound diagnostic apparatus 1 includes an ultrasound probe 2; an image acquisition unit 17 that acquires an ultrasound image of a subject by performing transmission and reception of an ultrasound beam to and from the ultrasound probe 2 in accordance with a predetermined transmission/reception condition; a display unit 16 that displays the ultrasound image acquired by the image acquisition unit 17; a constipation evaluation unit 18 that performs constipation evaluation based on the ultrasound image acquired by the image acquisition unit 17; and a urine volume measurement availability determination unit 21 that determines whether or not urine volume measurement is available, from the ultrasound image acquired by the image acquisition unit 17 in accordance with the transmission/reception condition which is used to perform the constipation evaluation by the constipation evaluation unit 18.

  • Publication number: 20210219941
    Abstract: An ultrasound diagnostic apparatus 1 includes an image acquisition unit 17 that acquires an ultrasound image of a subject a bladder extraction unit 18 that extracts a bladder from the ultrasound image; a prostate extraction unit 19 that extracts a prostate or cervix from the ultrasound image from which the bladder is extracted; a region-of-interest setting unit 20 that sets a region of interest at a depth position in the ultrasound image based on a position of the extracted prostate or cervix in a case where the prostate or cervix is extracted and that sets a region of interest at a depth position in the ultrasound image based on a position of the extracted bladder in a case where the prostate or cervix is not extracted; and an image quality adjustment unit 21 that adjusts the transmission/reception condition according to the depth position of the region of interest.

  • Publication number: 20210224996
    Abstract: An ultrasound diagnostic apparatus 1 includes a bladder pattern storage unit 22, a reference pattern setting unit 21, a bladder extraction unit 18 that extracts a bladder region from an ultrasound image, a bladder extraction success/failure determination unit 19 that determines whether the bladder region represents a bladder having the reference pattern, and an image quality adjustment unit 20 that adjusts the image quality of the ultrasound image in a case where determination is made that the bladder region does not represent the bladder having the reference pattern, in which in a case where the determination is made that the bladder region does not represent the bladder having the reference pattern even in an ultrasound image of which the image quality is adjusted, the bladder extraction success/failure determination unit 19 determines whether the bladder region represents the bladder having the abnormal bladder pattern.

  • Publication number: 20190378262
    Abstract: There are provided an image evaluation apparatus, an image evaluation method, and an image evaluation program capable of highly evaluating an image having an impression of a user's preference. A plurality of images included in a first image group are input to an image evaluation apparatus (step 21). A plurality of representative image candidates are displayed (step 22), and the user selects a desired representative image from the representative image candidates (step 23). The difference between the impression value of the representative image and the impression value of the input image is calculated (step 24), and the image quality of the input image is determined (step 25). An image evaluation value is calculated so as to become higher as the difference between the impression values becomes smaller and the image quality becomes higher (step 26).

  • Patent number: 10296539
    Abstract: There are provided an image extraction system, an image extraction method, and an image extraction program for extracting images valuable to a user and a recording medium storing the program. An image set including three or more images is classified into a plurality of clusters, and an annotation indicating a subject or a scene of each image is acquired from a plurality of images included in each cluster. Image co-occurrence probabilities in a plurality of images are calculated from the acquired annotations, and an image with an image co-occurrence probability equal to or less than a threshold value is extracted.
