Title (EN) MULTIPLE SENSOR DEVICE FOR MEASURING TISSUE TEMPERATURE DURING THERMAL TREATMENT
(FR) DISPOSITIF À CAPTEURS MULTIPLES POUR MESURER LA TEMPÉRATURE DE TISSUS PENDANT UN TRAITEMENT THERMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to devices and methods for measuring tissue temperature during thermal treatment of a body. More particularly, the present invention relates to a thermal probe comprising a plurality of thermal sensors operable to measure tissue temperatures during thermal treatments such as cryosurgery. Embodiments of the invention enable simultaneous measurements, using a single probe, of temperatures at a plurality of positions within body tissues. A preferred embodiment enables movement of sensors with respect to tissues while the probe is immobilized by being embedded in frozen tissue.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à des dispositifs et à des procédés destinés à mesurer la température des tissus pendant le traitement thermique d'un corps. Plus particulièrement, la présente invention se rapporte à une sonde thermique comprenant une pluralité de capteurs thermiques pouvant fonctionner pour mesurer des températures de tissus pendant des traitements thermiques tels que de la cryochirurgie. Des modes de réalisation de l'invention permettent des mesures simultanées de températures, en utilisant une unique sonde, au niveau d'une pluralité de positions à l'intérieur des tissus du corps. Un mode de réalisation préféré permet le mouvement de capteurs par rapport aux tissus alors que la sonde est immobilisée en étant intégrée dans un tissu congelé.
