Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging system for diagnosing digestive diseases was newly developed in order to obtain information on pathology beyond morphology of lesions. In order to guide light reflected from a lesion, a baby fiber, which can be inserted in a forceps channel of the electronic endoscope, was also developed. The performance of the system was evaluated by animal experiment. Obtained hyperspectral data were found to have sufficient quality endurable to practical use. Harmful phenomena to a living body were not observed within the experiment. It was considered from the animal experiment that the present system could be practically used for humans.
