Title (EN) MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING CAPABLE CATHETER ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE CATHETER PERMETTANT DE METTRE EN OEUVRE UNE IMAGERIE PAR RESONANCE MAGNETIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A catheter assembly which is provided with a distally positioned magnetic resonance imaging coil, comprising a cable assembly having a proximal end and a distal end, the cable assembly further comprising an outer tube, a first electronics assembly (216) disposed within the distal end of the cable assembly, a first fiber optic strand (210) disposed within the tube, and connected to the first electronic assembly; and a tip assembly connected to the distal end of the cable assembly further comprising a thin structural wall forming a cavity, and a coil assembly (220) disposed within the cavity. The catheter assembly enables high resolution magnetic resonance imaging of tissue proximate to the assembly, as well as other beneficial diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
(FR) Ensemble cathéter pourvu d'un enroulement d'imagerie par résonance magnétique positionné de manière distale, et qui comprend un ensemble câble présentant une extrémité proximale et une extrémité distale. Cet ensemble câble comporte un tuyau extérieur, un premier ensemble électronique placé à l'intérieur de l'extrémité distale de l'ensemble câble, un premier brin optique placé dans le tuyau et connecté au premier ensemble électronique ; et un ensemble pointe connecté à l'extrémité distale de l'ensemble câble, qui comporte une paroi structurale fine formant une cavité, et un ensemble enroulement placé dans la cavité. Cet ensemble cathéter permet de mettre en oeuvre une imagerie par résonance magnétique de haute résolution sur du tissu proche de l'ensemble, ainsi que d'autres procédures diagnostiques et thérapeutiques profitables.
