Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE, IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE OPERATION METHOD, AND IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE OPERATION PROGRAM
Abstract:
This image processing device extracts light absorption information of a light absorbing body by using a plurality of images with mutually differing illumination light wavelength bands and mutually identical viewing angles. The image processing device comprises: an image acquisition unit that acquires a plurality of images; an overlap determination unit that determines, on the basis of a first image from among the plurality of images and a second image differing from the first image, whether there is an overlap between a first light absorbing body in the first image and a second light absorbing body in the second image along the in vivo depth direction in the images; and a light absorption information extraction unit that extracts light absorption information generated as a result of absorption by the first light absorbing body, such extraction carried using the first and second images and the determination results of the overlap determination unit.
