Title (EN) PHYSIOLOGY WORKSTATION WITH REAL-TIME FLUOROSCOPY OR ULTRASOUND IMAGING
(FR) POSTE DE TRAVAIL PHYSIOLOGIQUE PRESENTANT UNE IMAGERIE PAR ULTRASONS OU PAR FLUOROSCOPIE EN TEMPS REEL
Abstract:
(EN) A physiology workstation (206) is provided that comprises an physiology input configured to receive physiology signals from at least one of an intracardiac (IC) catheter (240) inserted in a subject and surface ECG leads (212) provided on the subject. The physiology signals are obtained during a procedure. A video input is configured to receive image frames, in real-time during the procedure . The image frames contain diagnostic information representative of data samples obtained from the subject during the procedure. A control module (208) controls physiology operations based on user inputs. A display module is controlled by the physiology control module. The display module displays the physiology signals and the image frames simultaneously, in real-time, during the procedure. Optionally, the workstation may include a video processor module (216) that formats the physiology signals into a display format. The video processor module may include an video processor and an external video processor (222) that receive and control display of the physiology signals and image frames, respectively. The image frames may include at least one of ultrasound images obtained from a surface ultrasound probe, intravenous ultrasound images obtained from an ultrasound catheter and fluoroscopy images obtained from a fluoroscopy system.
(FR) L'invention concerne un poste de travail physiologique (206) comprenant une entrée physiologique conçue pour recevoir des signaux physiologiques provenant d'au moins un cathéter intracardiaque (IC) (240) inséré dans un patient et des conducteurs ECG de surface (212) posés sur le sujet. Les signaux physiologiques sont obtenus pendant une procédure médicale. Une entrée vidéo est conçue pour recevoir des trames d'image, en temps réel, pendant la procédure. Les trames d'image contiennent des informations de diagnostic représentant des échantillons de données prélevés sur le sujet pendant la procédure. Un module de commande (208) commande des opérations physiologiques en fonction d'entrées d'utilisateur. Un module d'affichage est commandé par le module de commande physiologique. Le module d'affichage affiche les signaux physiologiques et les trames d'image simultanément, en temps réel, pendant la procédure. Eventuellement, le poste de travail peut comprendre un module de processeur vidéo (216) qui formate les signaux physiologiques pour les transformer au format d'affichage. Le module de processeur vidéo peut comprendre un processeur vidéo et un processeur vidéo extérieur (222) qui reçoivent et qui commandent respectivement l'affichage de signaux physiologiques et de trames d'image. Les trames d'image peuvent comprendre au moins une des images ultrasonores obtenues à partir d'une sonde ultrasonore de surface, des images ultrasonores intraveineuses obtenues à partir d'un cathéter ultrasonore et des images de fluoroscopie obtenues par un système de fluoroscopie.
