Image processing apparatus

Image Number 16 for United States Patent #7805006.

An image processing apparatus is made up of a processing target area specification section for specifying a processing target area; a circumferential direction specification section for specifying the circumferential direction of a contour circle in the processing target area; an edge detection region specification section for specifying three or more regions made different in position in the circumferential direction in the processing target area as edge detection regions based on the processing target area and the circumferential direction; an edge position identification section for identifying edge positions with respect to the radial direction based on the intensity distribution in the edge detection regions; and a contour circle determination section for determining a contour circle based on the edge positions identified relative to the edge detection regions.
