Title (EN) SURGICAL DRILL SYSTEM AND SURGICAL DRILL BIT TO BE USED THEREIN
(FR) SYSTEME DE FORET CHIRURGICAL ET FORET CHIRURGICAL DESTINE A ETRE UTILISE DANS CE DERNIER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Surgical drill system comprising a mechanical drill bit and means for imaging the vicinity of the drill bit tip, said means comprising: at least one optical fiber having a distal end and a proximal end, said distal end being located adjacent said drill bit tip, an optical processing unit, said proximal end of said at least one optical fiber being operatively connected to said processing unit, said at least one optical fiber directing light transmitted therethrough to the vicinity of said drill bit tip and collecting light reflected back from the vicinity of the drill bit tip, whereby an image in the vicinity of the drill bit tip is produced, wherein at least one optical fiber is housed within the drill bit.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de foret chirurgical comprenant un foret mécanique et un moyen d'imagerie des alentours de la pointe du foret, ledit moyen comprenant : au moins une fibre optique présentant une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale, ladite extrémité distale étant située de manière adjacente à ladite pointe du foret, une unité de traitement optique, ladite extrémité proximale de ladite ou desdites fibres optiques étant reliée fonctionnelle à ladite unité de traitement, ladite ou lesdites fibres optiques dirigeant la lumière transmise à travers ces dernières aux alentours de ladite pointe du foret et collectant la lumière réfléchie depuis les alentours de la pointe du foret, une image des alentours de la pointe du foret étant ainsi produite. L'invention est caractérisée en ce qu'au moins une fibre optique est logée dans le foret.
