Title: Method of apparatus for generating fluorescence diagnostic information

Abstract: First fluorescence diagnostic information reflecting a first characteristic value obtained on the basis of first fluorescence information on fluorescence emitted from an object part exposed to first stimulating light is output. Second fluorescence diagnostic information reflecting a second characteristic value obtained on the basis of second fluorescence information on fluorescence emitted from an object part exposed to second stimulating light is output. The wavelength of the first stimulating light is such that when the first stimulating light is projected onto clean object parts different in properties, different first characteristic values are obtained from the different object parts, and the wavelength of the second stimulating light is such that when the second stimulating light is projected onto a clean object part and an unclean object part, different second characteristic values are obtained from the clean object part and the unclean object part.
