Surgical Instrument and Systems with Integrated Optical Sensor
A surgical instrument has a surgical tool that has a proximal end and a distal end, and an optical sensor that has at least a portion attached to the surgical tool. The surgical tool has a portion that is suitable to provide a reference portion of the surgical tool, and the optical sensor has an end fixed relative to the reference portion of the surgical tool such that the reference portion of the surgical tool can be detected along with tissue that is proximate or in contact with the distal end of the surgical tool while in use.
