Michelson develops OCT probe for soft tissue imaging
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging systems provider Michelson Diagnostics has developed a probe for the in vivo imaging of oral and gynecological tissue, for use with its VivoSight Multi-Beam OCT imaging system.

The Soft Tissue Probe is 9 cm long and provides both 2D and 3D images over a 5 mm x 5 mm area and will provide in vivo images at better than 7.5 µm lateral resolution, said the Kent, England-based company.

Michelson said that the probe will help physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of oral and cervical cancers, and also will be suitable for imaging tumor margins prior to surgery.
