Research output: Patent


A fiber-optic multimodal multi-spectral (MS), Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), photoacoustic (PA) endoscope with beam scanning by a two-dimensional Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) scanner present in the endoscopic head, combined in a synergetic way in a single endoscopic system. The PA, OCT and MS light sources are coupled to the endoscopic head through an optical switcher. Using a single optical endoscopic head and an electro-optical switch the endoscope of the invention is capable of sequential or parallel MS, OCT and PA imaging. The endoscope provides real-time imaging with a rate of 5 to 60 frames per second for each of the three imaging modalities.
