Title (EN) METHOD FOR AUTOMATICALLY MEASURING A FETAL ARTERY AND IN PARTICULAR THE ABDOMINAL AORTA AND DEVICE FOR THE ECHOGRAPHIC MEASUREMENT OF A FETAL ARTERY
(FR) MÉTHODE DE MESURE AUTOMATIQUE D'UNE ARTÈRE FŒTALE ET EN PARTICULIER DE L'AORTE ABDOMINALE ET DISPOSITIF POUR LA MESURE ÉCHOGRAPHIQUE D'UNE ARTÈRE FŒTALE
Abstract:
(EN) Method for automatically measuring a fetal artery, and in particular the abdominal aorta, which comprises a step for acquiring and storing a sequence cineloop of B-mode images of the fetal abdomen by means of an ultrasonographic device; a step for the approximate identification of the abdominal aorta, by means of a bank of directional filters obtaining an approximate image; a step for the fine identification for each image of said sequence, of the walls of the abdominal aorta, starting from the aforesaid approximate image by means of a calculation model based on the active contours obtaining sequences of segmented images; a step for measuring the diameter and/or the corresponding intima- media thickness of the fetal artery and in particular of the abdominal aorta, conducted at one or more segmented images.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une méthode de mesure automatique d'une artère fœtale, et en particulier de l'aorte abdominale, qui comprend une étape d'acquisition et de stockage d'une séquence d'images en mode B Cineloop de l'abdomen fœtal au moyen d'un dispositif échographique; une étape d'identification approximative de l'aorte abdominale, au moyen d'une banque de filtres directionnels permettant d'obtenir une image approximative; une étape d'identification fine de chaque image de ladite séquence, des parois de l'aorte abdominale, à partir de ladite image approximative au moyen d'un modèle de calcul basé sur les contours actifs permettant d'obtenir les séquences d'images segmentées; une étape de mesure du diamètre et/ou de l'épaisseur intima-media correspondante de l'artère fœtale et en particulier de l'aorte abdominale, réalisée sur une ou plusieurs images segmentées.
