Title
(EN) HEART TREATMENT KIT, SYSTEM, AND METHOD FOR RADIOSURGICALLY ALLEVIATING ARRHYTHMIA
(FR) KIT DE TRAITEMENT CARDIAQUE, SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR ATTÉNUER L'ARYTHMIE PAR RADIOCHIRURGIE
Abstract
(EN)
Radiosurgical treatments of tissues of the heart mitigate arrhythmias and treat other tumerous and non-tumerous disease using an implanted fiducial positioned in or near the heart using cardiac catheterization techniques. The fiducials may be implanted after diagnostic and planning images of the target tissues have been acquired. Fiducial implantation may take place the day of a scheduled radiosurgical treatment. Techniques to accommodate post-planning fiducial implantation may include registration of the implanted fiducial location with the treatment plan, and active fiducials may limit collateral imaging radiation exposure while enhancing tracking accuracy.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des traitements radiochirurgicaux de tissus du cœur, qui atténuent les arythmies et traitent d'autres maladies tumorales et non tumorales en utilisant un repère implanté positionné dans ou à proximité du cœur en utilisant des techniques de cathétérisation cardiaque. Les repères peuvent être implantés après le diagnostic et l'acquisition d'images de planification des tissus cibles. L'implantation des repères peut avoir lieu le jour d'un traitement radiochirurgical programmé. Des techniques pour permettre une implantation de repères après la planification peuvent inclure l'enregistrement de l'emplacement des repères implantés dans le programme de traitement, et des repères actifs peuvent limiter l'exposition collatérale à des rayonnements d'imagerie, tout en améliorant la précision du suivi.
