Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR NON-INVASIVELY MEASURING THE VOLUME OF URINE IN A HUMAN BLADDER
(FR) APPAREIL POUR MESURER DE MANIERE NON INVASIVE LE VOLUME D'URINE DANS UNE VESSIE HUMAINE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for measuring the volume of urine in a human bladder, including a means for transmitting a plurality of ultrasound signals (10, 24) through the bladder and for receiving the returned ultrasound signals (10, 24). The apparatus further includes means for processing the received analog signals (26), means for converting the analog signal into a series of digital data elements and means for processing the data elements to detect selected portions of the border of the bladder, determine the interwall separation and compute the volume of urine in the bladder (12, 34).
(FR) Appareil permettant de mesurer le volume d'urine dans une vessie humaine comportant un moyen pour transmettre une pluralité de signaux ultrasonores (10, 24) à travers la vessie et pour recevoir les signaux ultrasonores (10, 24) renvoyés. L'appareil comprend également des moyens pour traiter les signaux analogiques reçus (26), des moyens pour convertir le signal analogique en une série d'éléments de données numériques, ainsi que des moyens pour traiter les éléments de données afin de détecter des parties sélectionnées du bord de la vessie, de déterminer la séparation interparoi et de calculer le volume d'urine dans la vessie (12, 34).
