Title (EN) DOSE DETERMINATION FOR INDUCING MICROCAVITATION IN RETINAL PIGMENT EPITHELIUM (RPE)
(FR) DÉTERMINATION DE LA DOSE NÉCESSAIRE À L'INDUCTION D'UNE MICROCAVITATION DANS L'ÉPITHÉLIUM PIGMENTAIRE RÉTINIEN (EPR)
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and systems for controlling selective targeting of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells within a treatment region of the RPE. The methods include (a) depositing a selected amount of energy on a test region of the RPE; (b) determining an extent to which microcavitation has occurred in the test region; and (c) on the basis of the determination, either depositing the selected amount of energy on the treatment region, or depositing an increased amount of energy on the test region, and repeating steps (b) and (c).
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes de contrôle du ciblage sélectif de cellules de l'épithélium pigmentaire rétinien (EPR) au sein d'une région de traitement de l'EPR. Ces procédés comprennent les étapes consistant (a) à amener une quantité d'énergie sélectionnée jusqu'à une région d'essai de l'EPR; (b) à déterminer dans quelle mesure une microcavitation est intervenue dans ladite région d'essai; et (c) sur la base de ladite détermination, soit à amener la quantité d'énergie sélectionnée jusqu'à la région de traitement, soit à amener une quantité accrue d'énergie jusqu'à la région d'essai, puis à répéter les étapes (b) et (c).
