Abstract
(EN)
Medical imaging devices, systems, and methods thereof. The medical imaging system may include a movable station and a gantry. The movable station includes a gantry mount rotatably attached to the gantry. The gantry includes an outer C-arm slidably mounted to and operable to slide relative to the gantry mount, an inner C-arm slidably coupled to the outer C-arm and, an imaging signal transmitter and sensor attached to the C-arms. The two C-arms work together to provide a full 360 degree rotation of the imaging signal transmitter. The movable station may include a motion control system and an imaging control system. In embodiments, the motion control system includes omni-directional wheels for precision control led-movement of the movable station.

L'invention concerne des dispositifs d'imagerie médicale, des systèmes et des procédés de ces derniers. Le système d'imagerie médicale peut comprendre une station mobile et un support mobile. La station mobile comprend un montant de support mobile fixé de manière rotative au support mobile. Le support mobile comprend un bras en C externe monté de manière coulissante et conçu pour coulisser par rapport au montant de support mobile, un bras en C interne couplé de manière coulissante au bras en C externe, et un capteur et un émetteur de signal d'imagerie fixés aux bras en C. Les deux bras en C fonctionnent ensemble pour fournir une rotation complète de 360° de l'émetteur de signal d'imagerie. La station mobile peut comprendre un système de commande de mouvement et un système de commande d'imagerie. Dans des modes de réalisation, le système de commande de mouvement comprend des roues omnidirectionnelles pour un mouvement de DEL de commande de précision de la station mobile.
