      MedTechPartners and Scinvivo

      Optical Coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technique that resembles the effect of ultrasound, but uses light instead of sound waves. OCT provides cross-sections of the area to be investigated that can be combined into a 2D image. OCT is widely used in ophthalmology and increasingly also to acquire images in the body. With this new diagnostics it can be prevented that operations are wrongly carried out, a problem that plays a role in current diagnostics (false positives). The inventor presents an innovative technology in the field of OCT, which is placed as a catheter in an endoscope. In this ...
