Title (EN) AUTOMATED THREE DIMENSIONAL ACOUSTIC IMAGING FOR MEDICAL PROCEDURE GUIDANCE
(FR) IMAGERIE ACOUSTIQUE TRIDIMENSIONNELLE AUTOMATISÉE POUR GUIDAGE D'INTERVENTION MÉDICALE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method of three dimensional acoustic imaging for medical procedure guidance includes receiving (410) an acoustic signal that is scanned to interrogate a volume of interest; determining (430) a location of a procedural device within the interrogated volume from the acoustic signal; and displaying (470) on a display device (130) a first view of a first plane perpendicular to an orientation of the procedural device. Beneficially, a second view of at least one plane perpendicular to the first plane is also displayed. Also beneficially, a third view of a third plane perpendicular to the first plane and to the second plane is also displayed. Also beneficially, the first, second, and third views are displayed at the same time.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système et un procédé d'imagerie acoustique tridimensionnelle pour guidage d'intervention médicale, qui comprennent la réception (410) d'un signal acoustique qui est balayé pour vérifier un volume d'intérêt ; la détermination (430) d'un emplacement d'un dispositif procédural dans le volume interrogé à partir du signal acoustique ; et l'affichage (470) sur un dispositif d'affichage (130) d'une première vue d'un premier plan perpendiculaire à une orientation du dispositif procédural. Il est en outre utile d'afficher également une seconde vue d'au moins un plan perpendiculaire au premier plan. Il est également utile d'afficher une troisième vue d'un troisième plan perpendiculaire au premier plan et au second plan. Il est également utile d'afficher simultanément les première, seconde et troisième vues.
