Paper Abstract

Recently, optical imaging system is widely used in medical purpose. By using optical imaging system specific diseases can be easily diagnosed at early stage because optical imaging system has high resolution performance and various imaging method. These methods are used to get high resolution image of human body and can be used to verify whether the cell is infected by virus. Confocal microscope is one of the famous imaging systems which is used for in-vivo imaging. Because most of diseases are accompanied with cellular level changes, doctors can diagnosis at early stage by observing the cellular image of human organ. Current research is focused in the development of endo-microscope that has great advantage in accessibility to human body. In this research, I designed small probe that is connected to confocal microscope through optical fiber bundle and work as endo-microscope. And this small probe is mainly designed to correct chromatic aberration to use various laser sources for both fluorescence type and reflection type confocal images. By using two kinds of laser sources at the same time we demonstrated multi-modality confocal endo-microscope.
