(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR UN DISPOSITIF D'IMAGERIE OPTIQUE À COMMANDE ACTIVE
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure provides a common-path optical waveguide probe. The common-path optical waveguide probe includes an optical waveguide, a lens, and a reference reflector. The optical waveguide includes a proximal end and a distal end. The lens is coupled to the distal end. The reference reflector is positioned between the optical waveguide and the lens. The disclosure also provides a catheter and an optical coherence tomography system utilizing the common-path optical waveguide probe. The disclosure also provides methods of making and using the common-path optical waveguide probe.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une sonde à guide d'ondes optiques à trajet commun. La sonde à guide d'ondes optiques à trajet commun comprend un guide d'ondes optiques, une lentille et un réflecteur de référence. Le guide d'ondes optiques possède une extrémité proximale et une extrémité distale. La lentille est accouplée à l'extrémité distale. Le réflecteur de référence est positionné entre le guide d'ondes optiques et la lentille. L'invention concerne également un cathéter et un système de tomographie par cohérence optique utilisant la sonde à guide d'ondes optiques à trajet commun. L'invention concerne également des procédés de fabrication et d'utilisation de la sonde à guide d'ondes optiques à trajet commun.
