Paper Abstract

The paper contains considerations on the physical and technical limits to miniaturization of high-quality optical fibre image guides for medical applications. We have shown the possibility of manufacturing a 500 um diameter image-guide of TV quality. The technological experiments were performed using a newely developed mosaic-assembling technology of preform manufacturing and fibre pulling. The paper closed with a real -life medical application considerations for this micro-image-guide-cathether.
