Borescopes and Endoscopic cameras. From a bird’s eye view, these may seem similar: a flexible or rigid tube with Chip-on-Tip / CMOS technology. Zooming in, we can appreciate the powerful capabilities they provide for a spectrum of visualization applications -- in aerospace, industrial inspection, defense/security, research, and of course, cutting-edge medicine. Let’s examine some innovations and trends.
Medical cameras, such as endoscopes and fiberscope cameras, enable clinicians to see directly into the body and view tissue and vessels in-detail directly.
Thanks to continual advances and miniaturization, today’s sophisticated medical cameras can see where our eyes cannot: for diagnosis, delivering therapy, performing surgery, as well as researching tomorrow’s treatments.
