Abstract:
For our senior design project, the goal was to design, build and fully characterize an endoscope to be used for cancer research. Currently, medications to be FDA approved for cancer treatment, are tested on mice, in which the only way to obtain data is to periodically euthanize a portion of the mice and perform autopsies to see their colons. This endoscope will allow cancer researchers to observe the distal colons of these mice by allowing researchers to obtain optical coherent tomography, surface magnifying chromendoscopy and laser-induced fluorescence images.
