Title (EN) MAGNETIC RESONANCE MONITORING OF THERMAL THERAPY
(FR) SURVEILLANCE PAR RESONANCE MAGNETIQUE DE THERAPIE PAR VOIE THERMIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention is a system for selectively applying heat (30) to destroy tumorous tissue (66) while using a double echo line scan sequence (50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 56, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64) generating two parallel scrolling displays during the heat therapy. One of the displays provides a temperature map, and the other display provides images of tissue damage by showing tissue intensity values.
(FR)Cette invention a trait à un système permettant de procéder à un apport sélectif de chaleur (30) afin de détruire des tissus tumoraux (66) et ce, en utilisant une séquence de balayages horizontaux à double écho (50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 56, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64) produisant deux affichages parallèles de défilement durant la thérapie par voie thermique. L'un de ces affichages donne une carte des température et l'autre fournit des images des dommages subis par les tissus en montrant des valeurs d'intensité du tissu.
