A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11849922B2) discloses a unique light source system designed for medical applications. The system includes multiple LED light sources emitting different wavelengths of light, each concentrated by pairs of Fresnel lenses with corrugated surfaces. A beam splitter then separates and guides the concentrated light beams through a light guide, ensuring collimation. The system can accommodate various combinations of LED light sources, including white light sources and exciting light sources with specific wavelength ranges, catering to different medical imaging and diagnostic needs.

Furthermore, the patent also covers the integration of this innovative light source system into medical cameras for photodynamic diagnostic and therapeutic devices. By incorporating the system into a medical camera setup with a video scope and color monitor, the devices can offer enhanced imaging capabilities for medical professionals. The system's ability to provide collimated light beams of different wavelengths can improve the accuracy and effectiveness of photodynamic diagnostic procedures, as well as enable targeted photodynamic therapy. Overall, the patented technology represents a significant advancement in medical imaging and treatment modalities, offering a versatile and efficient solution for various medical applications.
