Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR INSTRUMENT BUCKLING DETECTION
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE DÉTECTION DU FLAMBEMENT D'UN INSTRUMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A method comprises measuring, with a sensor, a shape of a section of an elongated flexible instrument and comparing the measured shape of the section of the elongated flexible instrument to an expected shape. The method also comprises determining whether the measured shape of the section of the elongated flexible instrument differs from the expected shape by a predefined threshold
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé consistant à mesurer, à l'aide d'un capteur, une forme d'une section d'un instrument souple allongé et à comparer la forme mesurée de la section de l'instrument souple allongé à une forme prévue. Le procédé consiste également à déterminer si la forme mesurée de la section de l'instrument souple allongé diffère de la forme prévue d'un seuil prédéfini.
