Title (EN) REFLECTANCE-FACILITATED ULTRASOUND TREATMENT AND MONITORING
(FR) TRAITEMENT PAR ULTRASONS FAVORISÉ PAR LA RÉFLEXION, ET SURVEILLANCE CORRESPONDANTE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus for ablating tissue of a subject is provided. The apparatus includes a reflection-facilitation element (20) having an inflatable element (22), which is placed at a first side of the tissue of the subject; and an introducer (24), coupled to the inflatable element which delivers a fluid to the first side of the tissue, such that a portion of the fluid is disposed within the inflatable element, and another portion of the fluid is disposed outside of the inflatable element. The apparatus also includes an ultrasound tool (90), having at least one ultrasound transducer (92), which is placed at a second side of the tissue, and applies ultrasound energy such that at least a portion of the applied energy is reflected by the fluid. Other applications are also described.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil pour l'ablation de tissu chez un patient. L'appareil comprend un élément (20) favorisant la réflexion et présentant un élément gonflable (22), lequel est placé d'un premier côté du tissu du sujet; et un dispositif d'introduction (24) accouplé à l'élément gonflable qui distribue un fluide du premier côté du tissu, de sorte qu'une partie du fluide est disposée dans l'élément gonflable, et qu'une autre partie du fluide est disposée à l'extérieur de l'élément gonflable. L'appareil comprend également un instrument ultrasonore (90) présentant au moins un transducteur ultrasonore (92), qui est placé d'un second côté du tissu et applique une énergie ultrasonore de sorte que ladite partie de l'énergie appliquée est réfléchie par le fluide. L'invention concerne également d'autres applications.
