Daniel R Lobb, Robert N West: Laser scanning imaging apparatus and method of ranging. Keymed, Beveridge DeGrandi & Weilacher, September 3, 1991: US05045936 (178 worldwide citation)

A laser beam is projected through the optical system of an endoscope and scanned in raster fashion by means of a scanning head at a proximal end of the endoscope tube. The beam is projected from a distal end of the endoscope tube so as to be scanned over an object. Light reflected from the object is ...
