Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for treatment of soft tissue includes a source of radiation, a handpiece which is adapted to transmit radiation emitted from the source of radiation to a region of soft tissue, resulting in irradiated soft tissue, said handpiece being positioned adjacent to or in contact with said soft tissue region, a grid element adapted to hold at least one temperature sensor in contact with or embedded in said region of soft tissue, and a microprocessor, which converts a signal from the at least one temperature sensor into a measure of damage produced in at least two components of the irradiated soft tissue, said components comprising at least one normal tissue component and at least one malignant, hypertrophic, diseased, or unwanted component.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil pour le traitement de tissu mou qui comprend une source de rayonnement, une pièce à main qui est adaptée pour transmettre un rayonnement émis depuis la source de rayonnement vers une région de tissu mou, conduisant à un tissu mou irradié, ladite pièce à main étant en position adjacente à ou en contact avec ladite région de tissu mou, un élément de grille adapté pour soutenir au moins un capteur de température en contact avec ou incorporé dans ladite région de tissu mou, et un microprocesseur, qui convertit un signal provenant de l'au moins un capteur de température en mesure de dommages produits dans au moins deux composants du tissu mou irradié, lesdits composants comprenant au moins un composant de tissu normal et au moins un composant malin, hypertrophié, malade, ou indésirable.
