Title (EN) DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING METHOD
(FR) METHODE D'IMAGERIE DIAGNOSTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a diagnostic imaging method for interventional radiology. According to this method layer images (1, 2) of the examination zone are reproduced in a three-dimensional view in such a manner that the trajectory of the interventional instrument (4) forms the common line of intersection (3) of the image planes of the layer images (1, 2). In accordance with the visualization method of the invention, at the same time a target zone (6, 6') that is to be reached by the interventional instrument (4) is displayed, so that the operating surgeon can interactively guide the interventional instrument (4) towards the target zone (6, 6').
(FR) L'invention concerne une méthode d'imagerie diagnostique pour la radiologie d'intervention. Selon le procédé de l'invention, des images en couches (1, 2) de la zone examinée sont reproduites dans une vue tridimensionnelle, de manière que la trajectoire de l'instrument d'intervention (4) forme la ligne commune d'intersection (3) des plans d'image des images en couches (1, 2). Selon le procédé de visualisation de l'invention, une zone cible (6, 6') destinée à être atteinte par l'instrument d'intervention (4) est affichée simultanément, de sorte que le chirurgien intervenant guide de manière interactive l'instrument d'intervention (4) en direction de la zone cible (6, 6').
