Title
(EN) A METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR GUIDING A DIAGNOSTIC OR THERAPEUTIC INSTRUMENT TOWARDS A TARGET REGION INSIDE THE PATIENT'S BODY
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME DE GUIDAGE D'UN INSTRUMENT DIAGNOSTIQUE OU THERAPEUTIQUE VERS UNE REGION CIBLE SITUEE A L'INTERIEUR DU CORPS D'UN PATIENT
Abstract
(EN) A guiding apparatus for diagnostic or therapeutic instrument (20) towards a desired target in the patient's body (10) employs a rigid frame (12) with a plurality of markers (14) and a stereotactic guide (18). Signals from these elements are sent to a computer (24) to generate a combined structural and functional image of the patient's body, including the target for guiding the instrument (20) to the target.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un système de guidage d'un instrument diagnostique ou thérapeutique vers une cible correcte située à l'intérieur du corps d'un patient. Ce procédé consiste à utiliser une image combinée en enregistrant des images structurelles et fonctionnelles d'au moins une portion du corps du patient comprenant la zone cible, et à utiliser simultanément un dispositif de guidage, lequel comprend un indicateur associé à l'instrument et peut fonctionner pour fournir des données indiquant une position d'un point de l'instrument par rapport à tout autre point situé dans au moins ladite zone cible du corps du patient. Ce dispositif de guidage peut se connecter à un ordinateur qui affiche l'image combinée et fonctionne ainsi pour guider l'instrument vers la cible.
