Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF MEDICAL CONDITIONS IN THE SPINE AND OTHER BODY PARTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES POUR LE DIAGNOSTIC ET LE TRAITEMENT DE CONDITIONS MÉDICALES DANS LA COLONNE VERTÉBRALE ET D'AUTRES PARTIES DU CORPS
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed are methods and systems for the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions in the spine. In one variation, the method comprises measuring a first signal from a detector positioned on or near a body part of a patient to determine a baseline signal, modifying a physiological condition of the body part; measuring a second signal from the detector; and comparing the second signal to the fist signal to determine whether a treatment is needed for the body part.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour le diagnostic et le traitement de conditions médicales dans la colonne vertébrale. Dans une variation, le procédé comprend la mesure d'un premier signal à partir d'un détecteur positionné sur ou à proximité d'une partie du corps d'un patient afin de déterminer un signal de ligne de base, la modification d'une condition physiologique de la partie du corps ; la mesure d'un second signal à partir du détecteur ; et la comparaison du second signal avec le premier signal afin de déterminer si un traitement est nécessaire pour la partie du corps.
