Three-dimensional image display technique is becoming very important in the field of diagnosis of human fetus by ultrasound B-mode image. We apply the technique of holographic stereogram (HS) to the ultrasound B-mode human fetus images and display a 3-D image which is the real stereoscopic image. In this case each sectional diagram of the human body is measured by the ultrasound B-mode method and the human fetus image is extracted and then a 3-D surface image is reconstructed with the digital image processing. Then the 3-D image is projected to a plane and films which are composed of the various viewpoints are taken. Next, HS is constructed using these films. Then we make clear the condition of making HS. The rainbow hologram is made using the HS as the master hologram and we consider the characteristics of the reconstructed image. Also, the special image reconstructing lamp house is developed for medical application, and we discuss the possibility of this method for the medical diagnosis.
