Title: WIRELESS OPTICAL CURETTE SYSTEM
Abstract:
A wireless optical curette system is disclosed for allowing a user to visually examine in real-time and debride a target surface within a cavity of a patient. In at least one embodiment, at least one instrument attachment provides at least one fiber optic bundle extending between a working end of the instrument attachment and an opposing engagement end of the instrument attachment. An imaging assembly is selectively engagable with the engagement end of the instrument attachment and provides at least one light source and at least one imaging sensor in selective optical communication with the at least one fiber optic bundle, along with at least one microprocessor configured for wirelessly transmitting captured digital images, via at least one transceiver positioned within the imaging assembly, to at least one of a computing device and an imaging display for displaying the digital images in real-time.
