|1. (WO2017033728) ENDOSCOPE DEVICE|
This endoscope device 1 comprises: a CCD 31 for generating an image signal; a CCU 47 for processing the image signal to generate image data; a display unit 12a for displaying the image of an object; an insertion portion 11 equipped with the CCD 31 at the tip; a curving driver 43 for changing the imaging visual field of the CCD 31 by curving the tip of the insertion portion 11; and a CPU 47 for controlling the curving driver 43 while setting first and second measurement points on the object, and calculating the spatial coordinates of the first and second measurement points on the object, and first and second object distances from the first and second measurement points to the imaging surface of the CCD 31. The CPU 47 calculates the difference between the first and second object distances, and controls the curving driver 43 so as to decrease the difference.
