sonda a uncino

illuminated pick > illuminatore a uncino

Non sono certa che sia l'esatto termine tecnico, ma forse il suggerimento ti potrà servire comunque. Si tratta di strumenti a uncino usati in oftalmologia chirurgica, ti metto una descrizione e alcuni link con le foto. Bisognerebbe trovare una traduzione che fughi ogni dubbio oppure un esperto in oculistica...non semplicissimo...in bocca al lupo.

F. Intraocular Endoilluminators
Specialized endoilluminators are used in retinal–
vitreous surgery. In vitrectomy there are two commonly
used endoscopic illuminators: a flat-end probe
or a “bullet” probe, which emits a fan-shaped beam
for wide-angle illumination, and a chandelier probe,
which provides an annular beam of light around a
surgical probe. Yet another endoilluminator is
termed the “pick” illuminator.
