Title
(EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR IMAGING
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME D'IMAGERIE
Abstract
(EN)
A method for dynamic investigation of a subject lung, the method comprising the steps of: (i) imparting an oscillation to the lung at one or more forcing frequencies so as to elicit a lung response, (ii) sensing the response of the lung simultaneously with the imparting of the oscillation to elicit a lung response, (iii) choosing at least one parameter used in the sensing to define the lung motion associated with the lung response, (iv) comparing one of the chosen parameters at each forcing frequency with the response at the forcing frequency in at least one region of the lung, and (v) recording the comparison of step (iv).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'étude dynamique d'un poumon d'un sujet, le procédé comprenant les étapes consistant à : (i) conférer une oscillation au poumon à une ou plusieurs fréquences de forçage de manière à obtenir une réponse pulmonaire, (ii) détecter la réponse du poumon simultanément à la transmission de l'oscillation en vue d'obtenir une réponse pulmonaire, (iii) choisir au moins un paramètre utilisé dans la détection pour définir le mouvement pulmonaire associé à la réponse pulmonaire, (iv) comparer un des paramètres choisis à chaque fréquence de forçage à la réponse à la fréquence de forçage dans au moins une région du poumon et (v) enregistrer la comparaison de l'étape (iv).
