Title (EN) TISSUE DETECTION AND ABLATION APPARATUS AND APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ACTUATING A TUNER
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE DETECTION ET D'ABLATION DE TISSUS ET DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE POUR ACTIONNER UN SYNTONISEUR
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to an apparatus for classifying and/or ablating tissue. By directing microwave radiation through a probe (5) into tissue (6) and detecting the amplitude and phase of radiation reflected back through the probe and a reference signal, the tissue type can be classified. An impedance tuner which is actuated by magnetostrictive material (800) is also disclosed.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif permettant de classer et/ou de procéder à l'ablation de tissus. Le tissu concerné peut être classé par orientation de rayonnements hyperfréquence à travers un échantillon (5) dans le tissu (6) concerné et par détection de l'amplitude et de la phase du rayonnement réfléchi en retour à travers d'échantillon et d'un signal de référence. L'invention concerne également un syntoniseur d'impédance pouvant être actionné par matériau magnétorésistif (800).
