Abstract
(EN)
There is described medical devices and methods for measuring a target tissue, for example prostatic tissue. In some examples, there is described a medical device that has a deployable stimulation element, which may be deployable from the device to target tissue. That stimulation element can be used to stimulate a particular target tissue. In addition, an optical system may be usable to generate data associated with simulated target tissue so as to permit measurement of target tissue. That data may include optical coherence elastography data.

L'invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés médicaux permettant de mesurer un tissu cible, par exemple un tissu prostatique. Dans certains exemples, l'invention concerne un dispositif médical muni d’un élément de stimulation déployable, qui peut être déployable à partir du dispositif jusqu’au tissu cible. Ledit élément de stimulation peut être mis en œuvre afin de stimuler un tissu cible particulier. En outre, un système optique peut être utilisé afin de générer des données associées à un tissu cible stimulé de manière à permettre la mesure du tissu cible. Lesdites données peuvent comprendre des données élastographiques de cohérence optique.
