Abstract

A near-infrared Fourier-transform Raman fiber-optic sensor is designed to reduce the risk of perforations of the vessel wall in laser cardiovascular surgery. The sensor consists of a bundle of diagnostic fiber units and treatment fibers with masks for the selection of ablation patterns. The spatially resolved Raman signals are analyzed by a computer. By matching spectral features with the established database for the various tissues, the computer generates a cross-sectional artery image, recommended laser parameters, and ablation strategy within the area of the fiber-optic catheter.
