Title (EN) MEDICAL METHOD AND ASSOCIATED APPARATUS UTILIZABLE IN ACCESSING INTERNAL ORGANS THROUGH SKIN SURFACE
(FR) PROCEDE MEDICAL ET APPAREIL ASSOCIE PERMETTANT D'ACCEDER DANS DES ORGANES INTERNES A TRAVERS LA SURFACE CUTANEE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A medical apparatus includes a scanner for generating raw image data of internal tissue structures of a patient, and a computer operatively connected to the scanner and programmed to derive a three-dimensional electronic map or model of the internal tissue structures from the raw data. An image reproduction device is operatively connected to the computer for reproducing the map or model in a visually readable format. The computer controls the image reproduction device to reproduce the map or model. The visually readable format includes graphical representations of the tissue structures alignable on a skin surface of the patient with the tissue structures. In use, a medical practitioner inserts a sharp instrument into a patient through the reproduced map, using; the map as a locator assist.
(FR)Un appareil médical comprend un scanner permettant de générer des données images brutes de structures tissulaires internes d'un patient et un ordinateur connecté de manière opérationnelle au scanner et programmé pour obtenir à partir des données brutes une carte ou un modèle électronique tridimensionnel(le) des structures tissulaires internes. Un dispositif de reproduction d'image est connecté opérationnellement à l'ordinateur en vue de la reproduction de la carte ou du modèle dans un format lisible visuellement. L'ordinateur contrôle le dispositif de reproduction d'image afin de reproduire la carte ou le modèle. Le format lisible visuellement comprend des représentations graphiques des structures tissulaires alignables sur la surface cutanée du patient avec les structures tissulaires. Un médecin insère un instrument incisif dans un patient à travers la carte reproduite qui sert à préciser l'emplacement.
