Title
(EN) MEDICAL COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY IMAGING APPARATUS FOR IMAGING EXTREMITIES
(FR) APPAREIL D'IMAGERIE MÉDICALE PAR TOMOGRAPHIE INFORMATISÉE, DESTINÉ À PRÉSENTER EN IMAGE DES EXTRÉMITÉS
Abstract
(EN) The invention relates to a medical computed tomography imaging apparatus for imaging extremities, which apparatus includes a support construction (1) which is arranged to support a substantially ring-shaped structure supporting imaging means (2), which imaging means include a source of radiation (21) and a receiver of image information (22), which imaging means are arranged within said substantially ring-shaped structure supporting the imaging means (2) substantially to the opposite sides of each other and to be moved inside said ring-shaped structure supporting the imaging means (2). The apparatus according to the invention is arranged with at least one padding element (15) to at least one such point whereto the patient can when positioning oneself to be imaged, in connection with the actual patient positioning and/or during the actual imaging, depending on the imaging mode in question touch, lean on, kneel, sit on or step on.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil d'imagerie médicale par tomographie informatisée, destiné à prendre en image des extrémités. L'appareil comprend une construction de support (1) conçue pour recevoir une structure sensiblement annulaire servant de support à des moyens d'imagerie (2). Les moyens d'imagerie, qui comprennent une source de rayonnement (21) et un récepteur de données d'image (22), sont installés mobiles à l'intérieur de ladite structure sensiblement annulaire servant de support aux moyens d'imagerie (2), sensiblement sur leurs côtés opposés. L'appareil de l'invention comporte au moins un élément de rembourrage (15) permettant au moins au patient de venir au contact dudit élément ou de s'y appuyer, s'y agenouiller, s'y asseoir ou s'y tenir debout lorsqu'il s'installe lui-même pour une prise d'images par rapport à un positionnement effectif et/ou pendant la prise d'images effective, selon le mode d'imagerie adopté.
