Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE FOR ENDOSCOPE
Abstract:
An image processing device (1) for an endoscope comprises: a magnification/reduction unit (31) that magnifies or reduces a special light image and a plurality of color component images that constitute a normal light image; a blended image generation unit (32) that combines one magnified or reduced image from among the color component images and a magnified or reduced special light image to generate a blended image; and a superimposed image generation unit (33) that combines the blended image and another magnified or reduced image from among the color component images to generate a color superimposed image. The blended image generation unit (32) replaces some of the pixels of the one color component image with the corresponding pixels of the special light image so that the distribution of the pixels of the one color component image and the pixels of the special light image is substantially uniform across the entire blended image.
