Miniature fiber endoscopes offer a clear view inside the body
Endoscope manufacturers have recently developed new miniature fiberoptic endoscopes targeted for obstetric and gynecological (OB/GYN) applications. These miniendoscopes (less than 2 mm in diameter) are overcoming problems of poor illumination and resolution, typical of previous small endoscopes. Advances in optics, fiberoptics, and lightsource coupling are the primary reasons.
