Title (EN) BLADDER MEASUREMENT
(FR) MESURE DE LA VESSIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A measuring device, comprising, (a) an ultrasonic acoustic transceiver unit capable of sending and receiving acoustic signals into the body of a patient; (b) frequency modulating circuitry which drives said transceiver unit with a signal whose frequency varies with time; and (c) processing circuitry which extracts an indication of a distance, from at least one signal detected by said transceiver unit, said signal being a reflection of a transmission of said transceiver unit driven by said time varying frequency signal. Optionally, the indication is a distance between walls of a bladder.
(FR)Dispositif de mesure qui comporte (a) une unité transducteur acoustique ultrasonore capable d'envoyer des signaux acoustiques dans le corps d'un patient et de recevoir ces signaux acoustiques, (b) un circuit de modulation de fréquence qui excite ladite unité transducteur avec un signal dont la fréquence varie avec le temps et (c) un circuit de traitement qui extrait une indication de distance d'au moins un signal détecté par ladite unité transducteur, ce signal étant une réflexion d'une transmission de l'unité transducteur excitée par le signal à fréquence variant dans le temps. Eventuellement, l'indication représente une distance entre les parois de la vessie.
