(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES D'IDENTIFICATION DE CALCUL
Abstract
(EN)
Aspects of stone identification methods and systems are described. According to one aspect, an exemplary method comprises: transmitting to a processing unit, with an imaging element mounted on a distal end of a scope, image data about a stone object inside a body cavity; generating from the image data, with the processing unit, a visual representation of the stone object and the body cavity; establishing from a user input, with the processing unit, a scale for the visual representation; determining from the visual representation, with the processing unit, a size of the stone object on the scale; comparing, with the processing unit, the size of the stone object with a predetermined maximum size to determine a removal status; and augmenting, with the processing unit, the visual representation to include an indicator responsive to the removal status. Associated systems are also described.

La présente invention concerne des aspects de procédés et systèmes d'identification de calcul. Selon un aspect, un procédé exemplaire comprend : la transmission à une unité de traitement, avec un élément d'imagerie monté sur une extrémité distale d'un endoscope, des données d'image concernant un objet de calcul à l'intérieur d'une cavité corporelle; la génération à partir des données d'image, avec l'unité de traitement, d'une représentation visuelle de l'objet de calcul et de la cavité corporelle; l'établissement, à partir d'une entrée d'utilisateur, avec l'unité de traitement, d'une échelle pour la représentation visuelle; la détermination à partir de la représentation visuelle, avec l'unité de traitement, d'une taille de l'objet de calcul sur l'échelle; la comparaison, avec l'unité de traitement, de la taille de l'objet en pierre ayant une taille maximale prédéterminée pour déterminer un état de retrait; et l'augmentation, avec l'unité de traitement, de la représentation visuelle pour inclure un indicateur en réponse à l'état de retrait. L'invention concerne en outre des systèmes associés.
