Title (EN) DUAL- FREQUENCY ENDO-RECTAL MR RECEIVE-ONLY PROBE
(FR) SYSTEMES, PROCEDES ET APPAREIL POUR UNE SONDE ENDORECTALE EXCLUSIVEMENT RECEPTRICE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems, methods and apparatus are provided through which a compact pod insertable into the rectum for Magnetic Resonance Imaging/Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) examination of the prostate and containing two receive coils, each connected to transmit blocking and pre-tuned trap circuitry which can be superimposed within the pod in close proximity, can, without either circuit interfering with the other, efficiently gather, for imaging and tissue analysis, radio frequency signals emanating from magnetically disturbed nuclei in prostate tissue.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés et un appareil à travers lequel une nacelle compacte pouvant être insérée dans le rectum pour un examen par imagerie par résonance magnétique/spectroscopie par résonance magnétique (IRM/SRM) de la prostate et contenant deux bobines réceptrices, chacune étant connectée pour transmettre un blocage et des circuits pièges pré-accordés pouvant être superposés dans la nacelle à proximité étroite, peut, sans qu’un circuit interfère avec l’autre, rassembler efficacement pour imagerie et analyse du tissu, des signaux de fréquence radio émanant des noyaux perturbés magnétiquement dans le tissu de la prostate.
