(FR) APPAREIL, SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES COMMANDANT ET FACILITANT LE RECUEIL D'INFORMATIONS AU MOYEN D'UN CATHETER A CAPSULE ATTACHEE
Abstract:
(EN) Exemplary apparatus can be provided which includes a capsule catheter first arrangement, a tether second arrangement which connected to the first arrangement; and a weighted structure connected to or provided in the first arrangement. For example, the weighted structure can have a particular weight that causes the first arrangement to interact with gravity. In this exemplary manner, that the first arrangement can be controllably translated and positioned within a luminal anatomical structure and/or provide information about anatomic features of imaged organ.
(FR) Dans une forme de réalisation donnée à titre d'exemple, l'invention concerne un appareil qui comprend un premier agencement de cathéter à capsule, un second agencement d'attache relié au premier agencement ; et une structure pesée, reliée au premier agencement ou prévue dans celui-ci. La structure pesée peut, par exemple, présenter un poids particulier faisant interagir le premier agencement avec la gravité. Dans ce premier exemple, le premier agencement peut être déplacé par translation de manière contrôlée et positionné à l'intérieur d'une structure anatomique luminale et/ou fournir des informations relatives à des caractéristiques anatomiques d'un organe imagé.
