Abstract

A mobile confocal microendoscope for use in a clinical setting has been developed. This system employs an endoscope consisting of a custom designed objective lens with a fiber optic imaging bundle to collect in-vivo images of patients. Some highlights and features of this mobile system include frame rates of up to 30 frames per second, an automated focus mechanism, automated dye delivery, clinician control, and the ability to be used in an area where there is a single 110V outlet. All optics are self-contained and the entire enclosure and catheter can be moved between surgical suites, sterilized and brought online in under 15 minutes. At this time, all data have been collected with a 488 nm laser, but the system is able to have a second laser line added to provide additional imaging capability. Preliminary in vivo results of images from the ovaries using topical fluorescein as a contrast agent are shown. Future plans for the system include use of acridine orange (AO) or SYTO-16 as a nucleic acid stain.
