Solid Tunable Lens Aims for Gentler Colonoscopies

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
An endoscopic probe with adjustable-focus capabilities in a slim package could facilitate more effective and less painful colonoscopies. Researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) developed the instrument using prototypical solid tunable lens technology. Although this new device still is in its early stages and has not yet been tested in a clinical setting, it is less bulky than current high-magnification endoscopes. It's a case of function following mechanical form, as current endoscope technology attempts to zoom in to the best of the camera's ability in order to...Read full article
