Title (EN) ULTRASOUND SYSTEM WITH DOCKING STATION AND DOCKABLE ULTRASOUND PROBE
(FR) SYSTÈME ULTRASONORE À STATION D'ACCUEIL ET SONDE À ULTRASONS POUVANT ÊTRE ANCRÉE
Abstract:
(EN) An ultrasound system comprising a portable ultrasound probe and a docking station provides enhanced ultrasound functionality. One or more first transducer elements transmit an ultrasound signal toward a target structure in a region of interest. Processing circuitry controls transmission of the ultrasound signal, while driving circuitry that is operatively coupled to the one or more first transducer elements and the processing circuitry drives the transmission of the ultrasound signal. The ultrasound probe further includes one or more second transducer elements that receive echo signals returning from the target structure in response to transmission of the ultrasound signal, and a power supply that provides power to the driving circuitry for transmission of the ultrasound signal. The docking station includes an interface that is couplable to the ultrasound probe and circuitry that electrically couples to the ultrasound probe via the interface and enhances the ultrasound functionality of the ultrasound probe.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système ultrasonore comprenant une sonde à ultrasons portable et une station d'accueil et dont fonctionnalité ultrasonore est améliorée. Un ou plusieurs premiers éléments transducteurs transmettent un signal ultrasonore vers une structure cible dans une région d'intérêt. Le circuit de traitement commande la transmission du signal ultrasonore, tandis qu'un circuit de commande qui est couplé de manière opérationnelle au(x) premier(s) élément(s) transducteur(s) et au circuit de traitement commande la transmission du signal ultrasonore. La sonde à ultrasons comprend en outre un ou plusieurs seconds éléments transducteurs qui reçoivent des signaux d'écho revenant de la structure cible en réponse à la transmission du signal ultrasonore, et une alimentation électrique qui alimente le circuit de commande pour la transmission du signal ultrasonore. La station d'accueil comprend une interface qui peut être couplée à la sonde à ultrasons et un circuit qui se couple électriquement à la sonde à ultrasons par l'intermédiaire de l'interface et améliore la fonctionnalité ultrasonore de la sonde à ultrasons.
