Confocal endoscopy via structured illumination

SCANNING 24 (6): 301-304 NOV-DEC 2002 Karadaglic D, Juskaitis R, Wilson T

We describe a simple modification to a rigidendoscope so as to provide both high-quality conventionaland confocal images of reasonably accessible regions of thebody. This versatile system uses a structured illuminationapproach together with a conventional incoherent illuminationsource. Images taken in fluorescence are presentedusing this combined conventional and confocal endoscope.
