Abstract

We have developed a mobile confocal microendoscope system that provides live cellular imaging during surgery to aid in diagnosing microscopic abnormalities including cancer. We present initial clinical trial results using the device to image ovaries in-vivo using fluorescein and ex-vivo results using acridine orange. The imaging catheter has improved depth control and localized dye delivery mechanisms than previously presented. A manual control now provides a simple way for the surgeon to adjust and optimize imaging depth during the procedure while a tiny piezo valve in the imaging catheter controls the dye delivery..
