Title: A DEVICE FOR USE IN HYSTEROSCOPY
Abstract:
A device (1) for visualization of internal tissue of a patient's uterus, the device comprising a hand-held control unit (2), an elongated member (3), and an image capturing tip (10). To increase the manoeuvrability of the image capturing tip, the elongated member forms a straight portion (8) extending along a straight axis and a curved portion (9) forming a curvature away from the straight axis, the curved portion being between the image capturing tip and the straight portion. By rotation of an inner tube (24) in an outer tube (25), an image capturing structure will move along a circular path without being rotated about the centre axis of the elongated member.
