Title
(EN) PROBE-BASED CONFOCAL LASER ENDOMICROSCOPY
(FR) ENDOMICROSCOPIE CONFOCALE À BALAYAGE LASER PAR SONDE
Abstract
(EN) This document provides methods and materials involved in obtaining images using pCLE. For example, devices (e.g., pCLE devices) and systems configured to allow a user (e.g., a clinician) to stabilize imaging probes in a manner that minimizes excessive movement during imaging are provided.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés et du matériel utilisés pour obtenir des images par endomicroscopie confocale à balayage laser par sonde. L'invention concerne, par exemple, des dispositifs (tels que des dispositifs d'endomicroscopie confocale à balayage laser par sonde) et des systèmes conçus pour permettre à un utilisateur (par exemple un clinicien) de stabiliser des sondes d'imagerie de façon à minimiser les mouvements de trop grande ampleur durant une procédure d'imagerie.
