Title
(EN) ULTRASOUND GUIDANCE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE GUIDAGE ULTRASONORE
Abstract
(EN)
A compact ultrasound needle guidance system and method of use is described. The needle guidance system has components to adjustably target a needle's destination in the plane of a two-dimensional ultrasound image before insertion of a needle into a patient. Needle movement is tracked using a position detector that provides a visual display of the needle path on the ultrasonic image.
(FR)
La présente invention a trait à un système compact de guidage par aiguilles à ultrasons et son procédé d'utilisation. Le système de guidage par aiguilles à ultrasons comporte des éléments pour le ciblage réglé d'une destination de l'aiguille dans le plan d'une image ultrasonore bidimensionnelle préalablement à l'insertion d'une aiguille dans le corps d'un patient. Le déplacement de l'aiguille est suivie à l'aide d'un capteur de position qui fournit une présentation visuelle du trajet de l'aiguille sur l'image ultrasonore.
