  • Development of a vascular endoscopic system for observing inner wall of large arteries for the use of endovascular intervention

    We have been developing an endoscopic system for observing inner wall of large arteries. The purpose of this system is to visualize the inner wall of large arteries, e.g., an aorta, without blocking off the blood stream for the use of an assistive technique for endovascular interventions such as stent-graft placement for aortic aneurysm. The technique newly introduced for this purpose was the use of intermittent high-pressure saline jet synchronized to heart beat (diastolic phase). In the previous paper, we reported performance of a prototype system using a commercially available bronchoscope having an outer diameter of 5 mm with a biopsy channel. A discharging system for intermittent high-pressure saline jet was also constructed using a high-speed solenoid valve and a pressurizing tank. In this study, we tried to introduce a special hood (we call “Hemo-visor”) on the tip of the endoscope in order to more clearly observe the target (inner wall of artery). From in vitro tests using a mock circulation system, it was confirmed that the Hemo-visor was highly effective for keeping saline solution around the endoscope tip against the blood stream, and for improving the quality of the picture obtained.

  • Design and fabrication of mechanical resonance based scanning endoscope

    Here we present a new microfabricated optical endoscope using a fully integrated optical waveguide with a push-pull piezoelectric actuator design. This new scanning probe was constructed using SU-8 epoxy-based photoresist as a resonant cantilever. The scanner was driven with a frequency of 25 Hz in the horizontal direction and a frequency of 4.71 kHz in the vertical direction. The best resolution obtained by the scanner is ~4 μm. A specific application for the design is in the area of endoscopy, where there is a need for a minimally invasive device that reduces the discomfort experienced by the patient by reduces the overall geometry of the endoscope.

  • Adaptive illumination in wireless capsule endoscopy system

    Wireless capsule endoscopy is used to capture images from inside body which are used for diagnosis of various diseases. Diagnosis of disease and detail analysis of endoscopic images is based on the quality of image which is heavily dependent on the image size, frame rate and illumination system. The design of illumination system involves choice and placement of proper light source. Light emitting diodes (LED) are widely used as light source for illumination. The brightness in a captured image depends on the distance of the object from the light source and surrounding environment. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm that uses the captured image for determining the proper illumination condition for future frames. Based on it, the brightness of the LEDs is controlled individually in real-time to give proper illumination for clear image acquisition.

In recent years, this system is suggested combining with capsular endoscopes being used to diagnose digestive organs. In this paper, we proposed a receiving antenna which is assumed to be stowed in the capsular endoscope to transceive wireless signal for medical applications. This antenna is designed to operate in 430 MHz band. The results show that the capsular endoscope can be received required power for operation.

  • Design and Implement the Stimuli Capsule at In-vitro Experiment

    Recently, the capsule endoscope has been developed to observe image from the inside intestine. Such a capsule endoscope does not have locomotion or hold by it self. To get proper diagnosis and meditation, it is necessary to control capsule from outside to enable to guide locomotion. The designed and implemented capsule has feasibility to contracts the small intestine by electrical stimulus from stimulus pad. When the small intestine is contracted by electrical stimulus, the capsule can move to opposite direction which can boost moving speed of the capsule or change moving direction. The implemented stimuli capsule always monitors excessive energy transmit and automatically shut down electrical stimuli to make more secure. Also the stimuli capsule goes to stand by mode to save battery, and reset by comparator circuit which is connected to two stimulus pad. To verify the design and implement stimuli capsule, <i>in-vitro</i> experiments are performed with pig's small intestine.

  • Channel characterization and diversity feasibility for in-body to on-body communication using low-band UWB signals

    This paper aims at the feasibility study of a wireless link for capsule endoscope by using of low-band ultra wideband (UWB) signals. The UWB technique has a potential to provide real-time image transmission from the inside to outside of the body, but it suffers from the large attenuation in the human tissue. We employ the finite difference time domain (FDTD) numerical technique together with an anatomical human body model to derive the channel characteristics such as the path loss and shadow fading. We also investigate the feasibility to use a space diversity technique to improve the communication performance. The results have shown a possibility to use the low-band UWB technique to realize a data rate as high as 80 Mbps for the capsule endoscope application.

  • Improved Color Clustering Vector Applied in Endoscope Image Retrieval

    In this paper, improved CCV is extracted as retrieval feature using a new quantification method which is proposed based on the analysis of endoscope image color distribution in different color spaces. It is proved that with this quantification, the improved CCV displays better retrieval effect.

  • Simultaneous high-speed digital recording of vocal fold vibration and speech signal

    A new method for the high-speed digital recording of the vocal fold vibration is presented. The method employs a solid endoscope, a solid-state image sensor and a digital image memory. About 100 frames of continuous image data with 50 × 50 picture elements can be stored in the image memory at one time. Image recording at a rate of 2000 frames per second was achieved using a small light source of a 250 W halogen lamp. The method enables to record the speech signal without special consideration on the camera noises, and also to observe the recorded image on the spot through CRT display. An example of the image data with simultaneously recorded speech and EEG signals are presented comparing the male and female voices, and the chest voice, falsetto and breathy voice.

  • Simultaneous optical mapping system of endocardial and epicardial excitation

    The cardiac excitation propagation during arrhythmia shows a three-dimensional complex excitation behavior. Numerous optical measurements of the propagation and action potentials of the cardiac muscles have been made to elucidate the detailed arrhythmia phenomenon. The conventional optical measurement system mainly observes the action potential signal of the epicardium, and the endocardial signal measurement without incising the heart is difficult. In addition, an incised heart no longer exhibits the natural excitation behavior. Therefore, we constructed a simultaneous measurement system that integrates the conventional epicardial measurement system and the endocardial measurement system by using an endoscope for an intact heart. Then, we proposed a line- laser registration method that can match correspondence between the epicardial and endocardial images for a short period. We demonstrated that this registration method has a sub-millimeter accuracy. Subsequently, we succeeded in simultaneous optical measurement of the excitation propagation of the epicardium and endocardium of the right heart wall by using an isolated rabbit heart.

  • Automatic surface reconstruction for endoscopy-MR image fusion in image guided procedures

    Endoscope based minimally invasive abdominal procedures provide potential advantages over conventional open surgery such as reduced trauma, shorter hospital stay, and quick recovery. One of the major limitations of the use of this technique is the small area that the endoscope covers resulting in the lack of proper 3D context of the surgical site. We propose a rapid and accurate approach to reconstruct the surface from intra-operative stereo endoscopic images of the surgical site which is projected with gridline light patterns. The reconstructed surface is then registered with the surface extracted from pre-operative MR images for fusion of endoscopic and MR images to guide these surgical procedures. We validate our proposed method on a liver phantom and achieve the surface registration error of 0.76 ± 0.11 mm.
