Abstract

A probe for optically imaging a pathway and associated methods is described. The probe includes a series of optical imaging units that include a beam splitter that rotates about an axis. The beam splitter directs a first portion of sensing light traversing a light path out from the probe in a radial direction onto a wall portion of the pathway and passes a second portion of the sensing light towards an adjacent optical imaging unit of the probe. Returned light from the wall portion of the pathway is received and directed back along the light path.
