Researchers 3D print endoscopic imaging device for improved cardio care

An international group of scientists led by the University of Adelaide and the University of Stuttgart has used 3D microprinting to develop an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) endoscope.  The research team’s novel probe fabrication technique uses side-facing freeform micro-optics (less than 130 µm in diameter) to 3D print directly onto single-mode fibers. Measuring just 0.48mm, the resulting […]
