The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "All of the optical components such as collimation and focal lenses, reflection mirror, PZT linear actuator and MR sensor were wholly packaged in a single scanning probe with a volume of 3.57 cm(3). This endoscopic probe has the advantages of having a small volume, extended stroke length (4.5 mm), high scanning speed (18.2 mm/s), efficient recoupling ratio (78.3%) and high spatial resolution (11.7 mu m) compared to conventional endo-scopes."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Consequently, it showed the potential for improving the endoscopic imaging system and utilizing the image-guided robotic surgery system."
