Expanding the Visual Field of Endoscopes
Piezo technology has a part in improving minimally invasive diagnostic procedures. It makes, e.g. endoscopic applications faster, more powerful and, therefore, more patient-friendly. The smallest piezo tubes are used, for example, in scanning fiber endoscopy; allowing the visual field of the endoscope to be significantly extended. The images created in this way are characterized by a higher degree of sharpness and thus more information content.
