Inexpensive, Portable System Expands OCT's Reach in the Body

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Researchers from Duke University have developed a way to use optical coherence tomography (OCT) in hard-to-reach areas of the body such as joints. The method may allow the technique to see use in further surgical and medical applications. The researchers used a rigid borescope, essentially a thin tube of lenses, to deliver the infrared light necessary to perform OCT. Measuring just 4 mm in diameter, the borescope makes the beam delivery portion of the device very slim without sacrificing imaging performance. Researchers used a new endoscopic OCT system to visualize variances in pig...Read full article
