Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE, IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD, AND IMAGE PROCESSING PROGRAM
Abstract:
A receiving device 4 according to the present invention comprises: a movement distance acquiring unit 432 that acquires the distance moved in the travel direction of a capsule endoscope 2 having an imaging unit on the basis of information sent from the capsule endoscope 2; and an associating unit 433 that associates, on the basis of at least the imaging distance in the direction of travel of the imaging unit and the distance the capsule endoscope 2 moved acquired by the movement distance acquiring unit 432, a first image that is captured by the imaging unit with a second image that captures an effective image pickup area that is continuous with the effective image pickup area of the imaging unit when the first image is captured. Thus, it is possible to provide an image processing device, an image processing method, and an image processing program that can associate, with a simple process, two images that indicate regions having spatial continuity.
