(DE) VERARBEITUNGSVORRICHTUNG FÜR ENDOSKOPBILDER
(EN) ENDOSCOPE IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE TRAITEMENT D'IMAGES D'ENDOSCOPE
Abstract
(EN) Disclosed is an image processing device for estimating a landing zone of a medical device extendable from a tip of an endoscope, the endoscope comprising one or more sensors including an image capturing device, the image processing device comprising a processing unit operationally connectable to the one or more sensors of the endoscope. The processing unit is configured to: obtain a stream of images captured by the image capturing device of the endoscope; process first sensor data recorded by the one or more sensors to estimate the landing zone of the medical device; andprovide the stream of images with a visual indication, indicating the estimated landing zone.
