Title: MEDICAL IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE, MEDICAL IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD, AND PROGRAM
Abstract:
The present technology relates to a medical image processing device, a medical image processing method, and a program for enabling a plurality of images to be displayed in an easily viewable manner to a user. The medical image processing device is provided with: a conversion unit which sets one of a plurality of images, respectively captured by a plurality of imaging units, as a main image and sets another of the images as a sub-image, and converts the sub-image into a superimposition image; and a superimposition unit which superimposes the converted image at a predetermined position in the main image. When a display position is moved, the conversion unit converts the sub-image to a sub-image corresponding to the movement. The sub-image display position and display area are set with reference to the size of a major subject in the main image. The present technology can be applied in an endoscope.
