... bundles led to the field of RVI using fiberscopes ( Fig. 16 ). The core concepts are the same as those for rigid borescopes, with the addition of flexibility, articulation, and transmission of light and image through fibers. Imaging through the bundle occurs because the fibers are aligned coherently...
