1. An image processing system comprising:

  • a stereoscopic display apparatus configured to display a stereoscopic image enabled for a stereoscopic vision using a plurality of parallax images;

    a rendering processor configured to generate a plurality of parallax images by applying a rendering process to volume data that is three-dimensional medical image data, from a plurality of viewpoint positions having different relative positions with respect to the volume data; and

    a display controller configured to cause the stereoscopic display apparatus to display a graphic image that includes a cursor that is operable by a given input unit in a three-dimensional stereoscopic image space in which a stereoscopic image is displayed on the stereoscopic display apparatus and an image of a given graphic indicating a depth-direction position of the cursor in a three-dimensional space represented by a coordinate system of the volume data, together with the parallax images generated by the rendering processor, whereinthe cursor is applied with a different color corresponding to the depth-direction position of the cursor andthe image of the given graphic indicates a distribution of colors that are applied to the cursor corresponding to the depth-direction position and having a shape extending in the depth direction.
