Abstract
The use of optical fibers for illumination and imaging of internal organs and tissue in conventional and transcutaneous endoscopy is described. The fabrication of flexible and rigid multifibers and of optical fibers with graded refractive index for imaging is discussed. Low-loss optical fibers for medical application are described in conjunction with the transmission of white laser light for illumination and in the application of high-power lasers in surgery. References to published work on the development and use of fiberscopes in medicine are given.
