Light guides are used in surgical microscopy for illumination in the operation area because they exhibit excellent transmission properties, transmit bright white light, have a wide angle for illumination and have excellent color rendering.
Surgical Diagnostic endoscopes
Because of restricted space, relatively small bundles of lighting fibers in rigid or
flexible endoscopes must be used.
Sophisticated hybrid assemblies combining flexible lighting and imaging bundles enhance SCHOTTs traditional capabilities. These next generation diagnostic and therapeutic devices will be used to detect and treat diseased tissue within the human body.
SCHOTTs leached image bundles are utilized in a variety of fiber optic endoscopes found in today‘s medical, veterinary and industrial markets. Today‘s sophisticated ear, nose, throat and urological procedures utilize high resolution flexible image bundles for image transfer.
