Title (EN) CARDIAC MRI WITH AN INTERNAL RECEIVING COIL AND AN EXTERNAL RECEIVING COIL
(FR) PROCEDE D'IMAGERIE CARDIAQUE PAR IRM METTANT EN OEUVRE UNE BOBINE RECEPTRICE INTERNE ET UNE BOBINE RECEPTRICE EXTERNE
Abstract:
(EN) This invention is a method of imaging the heart or the vessels emanating from the heart with the use of a first magnetic resonance receiving coil (24) and a second magnetic resonance receiving coil (32). The image is obtained by passing the first magnetic resonance coil into the oesophagus. The first magnetic resonance coil is positioned within the oesophagus adjacent the heart and the aortic arch. A first signal is generated from the first magnetic resonance coil. A first image of the heart or the vessels emanating from the heart is generated from the first signal. The second magnetic resonance coil is positioned on the torso proximate to the heart. A second signal is generated from the second magnetic resonance coil. A second image of the heart or the vessels emanating from the heart is generated from the second signal. A combined image of the heart or the vessels emanating from the heart is generated from the combination of the first image and the second image.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un procédé d'imagerie cardiaque qui permet d'obtenir des images du coeur ou des vaisseaux partant du coeur à l'aide de première et deuxième bobines réceptrices (24, 32) de résonance magnétique. On obtient l'image en faisant passer la première bobine de résonance magnétique dans l'oesophage. On place cette première bobine dans l'oesophage juste à côté du coeur et de l'arc aortique et il génère un premier signal qui produit une première image du coeur ou des vaisseaux partant du coeur. On place la deuxième bobine de résonance magnétique sur le torse à proximité du coeur, cette deuxième bobine générant un deuxième signal qui produit une deuxième image du coeur ou des vaisseaux partant du coeur. La combinaison des première et deuxième images produit une image combinée du coeur ou des vaisseaux partant du coeur.
