Abstract:
The present dual field of view flexible colonoscope can provide both forward view and radial or backward view of the colon to improve detection of cancerous polyps. The colonoscope has its own illumination that illuminates the parts of the colon viewed by imaging optics. The optical system, limited only by the diffraction effects at the exit pupil over the entire visible spectrum, can provide high resolution and is suitable for color imaging. The flexible colonoscope has an on-board sensor at the proximal end of the colonoscope to improve resolution. The proximal end of colonoscope measures only 8 mm in diameter and 20 mm in length. The present colonoscope has the potential to be scaled down to as small as 6 mm inner diameter from the present 8 mm.
