OCT endoscopic imaging system / cholangioscopy / esophagoscopy
At the heart of the NvisionVLE® Imaging System is our state-of-the-art Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging hardware, providing physicians with comprehensive volumetric images of the esophagus and bile duct in real-time.
OCT transmits infrared (invisible) light into tissue, and measures back-reflected light from the tissue microstructure to see beneath the surface. While similar in concept to ultrasound, OCT uses light instead of ultrasonic waves to produce higher-resolution images.
Subsurface: Image up to 3 mm beneath the tissue surface
Volumetric: Image 100% of the tissue over a 6 cm scan length
High Resolution: 7 microns
Real-time: User-controlled imaging
Fast: Complete automated volumetric scans in as little as 20 seconds
