Scan method of the SFE. A piezoelectric tube is driven with a sinusoid where the X and Y axes are 90 degrees out of phase while the signal amplitude is modulated. This results in a space-filling spiral scan. Backscattered light measured by the detector at each pixel location is assembled to form an image displayed on a screen. Between frames (*) the fiber scanner is brought to rest and a spectroscopic measurement can be made to diagnose tissue or high-power laser light can be turned on for laser therapy in a frame-sequential manner.

Figure 4. From: Scanning Single Fiber Endoscopy: A new platform technology for integrated laser imaging, diagnosis, and future therapies.

Images of a US Air Force standard resolution target acquired with a monochrome SFE. Figures 4A–C shows an image was acquired with a 30Volt, 15V and 5V scan, respectively. The scanning fiber system acquired these images at 30 Hz, at 250 spirals per scan or 500 lines per image. The SFE used to acquire these images is 1.2 mm in diameter, with a single ring of 50 μm glass multimode fibers used to collect the backscattered light to photomultiplier detectors, and a PENTAX lens assembly was used to focus laser light projected from the scanning fiber. The bar-space patterns on the image are separated by 88.3 μm at location 2–4, 27.9 μm at location 4–2, and by 13.9 μm at location 5–2, top right in 4C. Note there is an ovular indentation marked on the test target that is visible in the magnified images.

Distal tip of a SFE probe in cross-section view (vertical expanded 2X more than horizontal for viewing): 1. tube piezoelectric drive signal wiring, 2. piezoelectric mount collar, 3. ring of light collection multimode optical fibers, 4. illumination lens package, 5. piezoelectric tube actuator, 6. scanning single mode optical fiber as a base-excited cantilever, 7. stainless steel tube enclosure. Current size of the rigid distal tip is 1.2 mm in outer diameter and 8 to 10 mm in length for fiber scanning at 30 frames per second at 500-lines per color image. Side-viewing is possible by adding 90-degree reflection at the tip.
