    Endomicroscopy system allows visualization of tissue in real time

    Cook Medical’s Urology business will begin distributing the Cellvizio Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (CLE) System manufactured by Mauna Kea Technologies. With the Cellvizio system, a physician can visualize the internal microstructure of tissues in real time during ureteroscopic and cystoscopic procedures. CLE is an endoscopic technique that incorporates laser scanning technology to generate images of the internal microstructure of tissues. Cellvizio is a probe-based CLE system that uses Confocal Miniprobes, which are made up of optical fiber bundles and other optical elements. The probes transmit the laser energy to the tissue site and detect the fluorescent light that is reflected back. This reflected light is generated into real-time images of the internal microstructure of tissues. The Cellvizio system is composed of various components that are on a portable cart. This set-up allows the system to be transported between rooms in a hospital or clinic. The sterile probes used with the system can be reprocessed up to 20 times, depending on the model, according to Cook Medical.
