Fiber optic manometry catheters for in vivo monitoring of peristalsis in the human gut

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The human body presents some unique challenges for sensors. The sensing volume is not large, and the point of interest is never more than a few centimeters away from the “outside world”; however, many regions of the body have stubbornly resisted attempts at detailed measurement without simultaneously perturbing the self-same systems and processes under investigation.
