Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR IMAGING CHANGES IN TISSUE
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'IMAGERIE DE CHANGEMENTS AU NIVEAU DE TISSUS
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides systems and methods for monitoring tissue regions. In particular, the present invention provides systems and methods for detecting changes in tissue regions over a period of time. In some embodiments, the systems and methods of the present invention are used to evaluate the effectiveness of a particular treatment of a tissue region. In some embodiments, the systems and methods of the present invention provide a parametric response map approach for detecting and analyzing changes in tissue regions over a period of time to detect and monitor disease or tissue health and to monitor the impact of therapeutic interventions.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de surveillance de régions tissulaires. En particulier, la présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de détection de changements au niveau de régions tissulaires sur une certaine période. Dans des modes de réalisation, les systèmes et procédés de la présente invention sont utilisés pour évaluer l'efficacité d'un traitement particulier d'une région tissulaire. Dans des modes de réalisation, les systèmes et procédés de la présente invention font appel à une technique basée sur une correspondance de réponse paramétrique pour détecter et analyser des changements au niveau de régions tissulaires sur une certaine période afin de détecter et de surveiller la maladie ou la bonne santé des tissus et afin de surveiller l'impact d'interventions thérapeutiques.
