Mosaicing of Widefield Endomicroscopy Images

Add One

The Bioengineering Department at Rice University in Texas has been developing fibre-bundle based widefield endomicroscopes for several years. While these devices lack the depth sectioning capabilities of confocal endomicroscopes, they can still produce useful images from certain tissues if a suitable topical fluorophore is applied. A recent paper from Richards-Kortum’s Group at Rice has demonstrated ‘real time’ mosaicing using their endomicroscope, allowing characterisation of much larger areas of tissue than would otherwise be possible.
