Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR REMOTE ELECTRICAL IMPEDANCE TOMOGRAPHY THROUGH A COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE TOMOGRAPHIE D'IMPEDANCE ELECTRIQUE A DISTANCE UTILISANT UN RESEAU DE COMMUNICATION
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for imaging the internal structure of biological tissue from a remote location using electrical impedance tomography. The method and apparatus accomplish this by separating the functions of data acquisition from those of processing and imaging, and by connecting the data acquisition, processing and imaging components through a communications network, thus permitting the data acquisition, processing and imaging functions to be carried out at disparate locations within said network.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant d'obtenir des images de la structure interne de tissus biologiques par tomographie d'impédance électrique depuis un emplacement éloigné. Ce procédé consiste à séparer les fonctions d'acquisition de données des fonctions de traitement et d'imagerie et à relier les composantes d'acquisition de données, de traitement et d'imagerie par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau de communication, les fonctions d'acquisition de données, de traitement et d'imagerie pouvant ainsi être mises en oeuvre à des emplacements différents dudit réseau.
