Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MAPPING A STRUCTURE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE CARTOGRAPHIE D'UNE STRUCTURE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A volume of a patient can be mapped with a system operable to identify a plurality of locations and save a plurality of locations of a mapping instrument. The mapping instrument can include one or more electrodes that can sense a voltage that can be correlated to a three dimensional location of the electrode at the time of the sensing or measurement. Therefore, a map of a volume can be determined based upon the sensing of the plurality of points without the use of other imaging devices. An implantable medical device can then be navigated relative to the mapping data.
(FR)Selon l'invention, un volume d'un patient peut être cartographié à l'aide d'un système pouvant identifier et sauvegarder une pluralité d'emplacements d'un instrument de cartographie. L'instrument de cartographie peut comprendre une ou plusieurs électrodes qui détectent une tension pouvant être corrélée à un emplacement tridimensionnel de l'électrode au moment de la détection ou de la mesure. Ainsi, la carte d'un volume peut être établie sur la base de la détection de la pluralité de points, sans recourir à d'autres dispositifs d'imagerie, ce qui permet d'explorer un dispositif médical implantable en fonction des données cartographiques.
