Medical RGB-IR Image Sensor

OmniVision Technologies, Inc., Santa Clara, CA, has released an RGB-IR medical image sensor, which provides simultaneous white-light RGB captures and infrared monochrome captures in a single CMOS sensor. While endoscopic precancer and cancer detection procedures are performed using IR light, surgeons also need RGB light to confirm any abnormalities detected using infrared. The OH02A1S enables the designers of chip-on-tip endoscopes for cancer detection to eliminate a second image sensor, thereby overcoming the drawbacks of a two-imager design. These improvements allow the development of small outer diameter (OD) endoscopes for cancer detection and diagnostic procedures such as indocyanine green (ICG), and fluorescence, chromo, and virtual endoscopy.
