Title (EN) DEVICE, SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR IN-VIVO IMAGING OF A BODY LUMEN
(FR) DISPOSITIF, SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'IMAGERIE IN VIVO D'UNE LUMIERE CORPORELLE
Abstract:
(EN) An in vivo device (10), system and a method for imaging a body lumen, typically liquid filled body lumen. The in vivo device (10) may have a specific gravity of about 1 or a volume to weight ratio that enables it to float. The in vivo device (10) may include a sensor, for example an image sensor (32), and may be attached to or set in one or more buoyant bodies (14). The in vivo device (10) may be moved through the body lumen by the liquid movement in that lumen.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un dispositif, à un système et à un procédé in vivo permettant d'imager une lumière corporelle, en général une lumière corporelle remplie de liquide. Le dispositif in vivo selon l'invention peut présenter une densité relative d'environ 1 ou un rapport volume/poids qui lui permet de flotter. Le dispositif in vivo peut comprendre un capteur, par exemple un capteur d'images, et peut être fixé à un ou plusieurs corps flottants ou logé dans ces derniers. Le dispositif in vivo peut se déplacer à travers la lumière corporelle sous l'effet du mouvement du liquide contenu dans ladite lumière corporelle.
