Hakamata Kazuo: Fluorescent endoscope apparatus. Fuji Photo Film, October 31, 2001: EP1149555-A2

A fluorescent endoscope apparatus in which fluorescent light noise (e.g. generated by the photographic elements of the endoscope) is reduced as compared to the autofluorescent light emitted from the living-tissue being tested. This, in turn, improves the ability to distinguish between normal and des ...
