Title (EN) AN APPARATUS AND METHOD OF FREQUENCY COMPOUNDING TO PERFORM CONTRAST IMAGING
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE DE COMBINAISON DE FREQUENCES POUR MISE EN OEUVRE D'UNE IMAGERIE DE CONTRASTE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus and method of imaging contrast agents within a patient's body. The apparatus includes an imaging system transmitting at multiple frequencies to elicit a response from the contrast agent at corresponding multiple frequencies, forms images corresponding to each frequency, and the combines the formed images.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé permettant de représenter des agents de contraste dans le corps d'un patient. Le dispositif comprend un système imageur qui émet sous de multiples fréquences pour déclencher une réponse de l'agent de contraste sous des fréquences multiples correspondantes, forme des images correspondant à chaque fréquence et combine les images ainsi formées.
