To improve early detection of ovarian cancer, we have designed and built a microendoscope that combines optical coherence tomography (OCT) and multispectral fluorescence imaging (MFI) into a 0.7 mm diameter package. An endoscope of this size allows access to the ovaries through the fallopian tubes creating a minimally invasive procedure. We characterize the falloposcope’s imaging behavior and show that this system provides contrast on ex vivo surgical samples of ovary and fallopian tube. In addition, we show the mechanical performance of the endoscope in an anatomically correct model of the female reproductive treatment.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
