    Optical micro-endoscopes for 3D in-vivo imaging

    Electrothermal micromirrors and a flexible printed circuit board permit fast, small optical coherence tomography of internal organs. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a medical optical imaging technique that can achieve high-resolution 3D images (1-15μm)1 by detecting infrared light scattered by body tissue. It has an imaging depth range of about 3mm in highly-scattered tissue and has already been widely used for external imaging, e.g., for eye diseases and skin cancer diagnosis. It would be useful to apply OCT to internal imaging, since about 85% of all cancers originate from the surface layers of internal organs. As these ...
