|Title:||SYSTEMS, METHODS, AND DEVICES FOR PROVIDING ILLUMINATION IN AN ENDOSCOPIC IMAGING ENVIRONMENT|
The disclosure relates to an endoscopic system. The system may include a single optical fiber. The system may further include a light source which transmits light into the single optical fiber. An image sensor may be provided within the endoscopic system and disposed at a distal end of the single optical fiber. The endoscopic system may be additionally fitted with a diffuser on the distal end of the single optical fiber which outputs a light cone that is broader than an output of the single optical fiber without the diffuser.
