Abstract

Coherent Raman scattering methods allow for label-free imaging of tissue with chemical contrast and high spatial and temporal resolution. However, their imaging depth in scattering tissue is limited to less than 1mm, requiring the development of endoscopes to obtain images deep inside the body. Here, we describe a coherent Raman endoscope that provides stimulated Raman scattering images at seven frames per second using a miniaturized fiber scanner, a custom-designed objective lens, and an optimized scheme for collection of scattered light from the tissue. We characterize the system and demonstrate chemical selectivity in mouse tissue images.
