Title
(EN) STYLUS-AIDED TOUCHSCREEN CONTROL OF ULTRASOUND IMAGING DEVICES
(FR) COMMANDE PAR ECRAN TACTILE ET STYLET POUR DISPOSITIFS D'IMAGERIE ULTRASONORE
Abstract
(EN) A system (500), method and device (201-202) as well as an improvement for existing equipment is provided comprising a combination touchscreen/stylus (201-202) control for an ultra sound device such that high-resolution graphical input can be provided, especially concurrent with scanning of a subject. The ultra sound device can be controlled with only the provided touchscreen/stylus (201-202), or traditional trackball, mouse and keyboard input devices can also be provided for non-graphical input. An implementation approach that utilizes existing software for processing stylus input is also provided as an improvement to existing ultra sound devices.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système (500), un procédé et un dispositif (201-202) ainsi qu'une amélioration apportée à un équipement existant, l'invention comprenant une combinaison de commande par écran tactile et stylet (201-202) pour un dispositif à ultrasons, avec possibilité de saisie graphique haute résolution, notamment simultanément au balayage d'un sujet. Le dispositif à ultrasons peut être commandé avec seulement l'écran tactile/le stylet (201-202) fourni, ou bien au moyen d'une boule de commande classique ou d'une souris, des dispositifs de saisie sur clavier pouvant également servir à la saisie de données non graphiques. La présente invention porte également sur une réalisation qui fait appel au logiciel existant pour traiter la saisie au stylet, cette réalisation représentant une amélioration relativement aux dispositifs à ultrasons existants.
