Title
(EN) LOCATING INTRAVASCULAR IMAGES
(FR) LOCALISATION D'IMAGES INTRAVASCULAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
The invention includes imaging catheters having image collectors co-located with radiopaque labels, methods of using the imaging catheters, and systems for locating the position of intravascular images within the body. In some instances, an angiogram is used to determine the precise location of the co-located radiopaque labels, and thus, the position of the intravascular image.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des cathéters d'imagerie ayant des collecteurs d'image co-localisés avec des marqueurs radio-opaques, des procédés d'utilisation des cathéters d'imagerie et des systèmes destinés à localiser la position d'images intravasculaires à l'intérieur du corps. Dans certains exemples, un angiogramme est utilisé pour définir l'emplacement précis des marqueurs radio-opaques colocalisés, et ainsi la position de l'image intravasculaire.
