Title (EN) TEMPERATURE MAPPING ON STRUCTURAL DATA
(FR) MAPPAGE DE TEMPERATURE SUR DES DONNEES STRUCTURELLES
Abstract:
(EN) Temperature imaging has been recognized to improve a variety of diagnostic and interventional procedures and to predict and prevent failures of electrical circuits and equipments. A system design and method is disclosed, wherein the thermal data is fused and mapped with the data streams coming from a US, CT, or MR scanner, giving the doctors or industrial investigators the impression of being working with a known US, CT, or MR system which has been augmented by the temperature mapping capability.
(FR) L'imagerie de température permet d'améliorer plusieurs procédures de diagnostic et d'intervention et de prévoir et d'empêcher des pannes de circuits et de matériels électriques. L'invention porte sur un système et un procédé selon lesquels des données thermiques sont fusionnées et mappées au moyen de flots de données issues d'un scanner US, CT, ou MR, ce qui donne aux médecins ou aux chercheurs dans l'industrie l'impression de travailler avec un système US, CT, ou MR connu qui a été amélioré par la capacité de mappage de température.
