Paper Abstract

In 2004, Microvision presented "Scanned Beam Medical Imager" as an introduction to our MEMS-based, full color scanned beam imaging system. This presentation will provide an update of the technological advancements since this initial work from 2004. This recent work includes the development of functional prototypes that are much smaller than previous prototypes using a design architecture that is easily scalable. Performance has been significantly improved by increasing the optical field of views and video refresh rate. Real-time image processing capabilities have been developed to enhance the image quality and functionality over a wide range of operating conditions. Actual images of various objects will be presented.
