Title (EN) SONIC ENDOVENOUS CATHETER
(FR) CATHÉTER ENDOVEINEUX SONIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device and method to improve the ultrasound visibility of a catheter placed inside the body is described. The catheter is sonically vibrated by an external driver device that transmits the acoustic vibration down the catheter and inside the body. An ultrasound transducer is used to pick up the ultrasound vibrations directly or detects the sonic vibrations using a Doppler mode ultrasound machine.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé pour améliorer la visibilité ultrasonore d'un cathéter positionné à l'intérieur du corps. Un dispositif de moteur externe fait vibrer le cathéter de manière sonique, lequel dispositif de moteur externe transmet la vibration acoustique en bas du cathéter et à l'intérieur du corps. Un transducteur ultrasonore est utilisé pour capturer directement les vibrations ultrasonores ou détecte les vibrations soniques à l'aide d'une machine ultrasonore en mode Doppler.
