Laser Combiner Enables Scanning Fluorescence Endoscopy

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Dan Callen and Matthias Schulze, Coherent Inc.

A laser-scanning fiber endoscope uses a plug-and-play laser combiner to enable high-contrast images suitable for detecting early-stage precancerous lesions. Detection of early cancerous lesions using molecular imaging can improve disease diagnosis and increase survival rate – this is well established. For example, fluorescently labeled antibodies can be combined with laser excitation in various types of imaging endoscopes to deliver images highlighting precancerous tissue. This can enable real-time in vivo screening by allowing the endoscopist to identify areas for testing and/or...Read full article
