Title: ENDOSCOPE SYSTEM, PROCESSOR DEVICE, AND METHOD OF OPERATING ENDOSCOPE SYSTEM
Abstract:
Provided are an endoscope system, a processor device and a method of operating an endoscope system with which it is possible to acquire information contributing to a diagnosis, by suppressing a processing load at a time that is probably undesirable for a user such as a doctor, and automatically carrying out processes such as identification at an appropriate time that is probably desirable for a user such as a doctor. An endoscope system (10) is provided with an image acquiring unit (54), an identification processing unit (82) and an identification process control unit (83). The image acquiring unit (54) acquires an endoscopic image by using an endoscope (12) to capture an image of an observation target. The identification processing unit (82) uses the endoscopic image to carry out an identification process, thereby identifying a part of the observation target having a specific feature. The identification process control unit (83) controls the startup or termination of the identification process on the basis of a change in the action of the endoscope (12) or on the basis of the endoscopic image.
