Title (EN) ULTRASOUND DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF À ULTRASONS
Abstract:
(EN) An ultrasound device comprises an ultrasound head at a distal end of the shaft. Electrical circuitry for driving the ultrasound head includes circuit components mounted on a flexible carrier so that they do not require a fully rigid part of the device. The transducer aperture can then be made as large as possible for a given size of rigid substrate. A reduced rigid substrate length improves maneuverability of the device. The flexible component carrier is bendable in all planes parallel to the length direction so that it forms an end section of the shaft, and which can follow any desired path.
(FR) L’invention concerne un dispositif à ultrasons qui comprend une tête à ultrasons au niveau d'une extrémité distale de l'arbre. Des circuits électriques pour entraîner la tête à ultrasons comprennent des composants de circuit montés sur un support flexible de telle sorte qu'ils ne nécessitent pas une partie entièrement rigide du dispositif. L'ouverture du transducteur peut ensuite être rendue aussi grande que possible pour une taille donnée de substrat rigide. Une longueur de substrat rigide réduite améliore la maniabilité du dispositif. Le support de composant flexible est pliable dans tous les plans parallèles à la direction de la longueur de sorte qu'il forme une section d'extrémité de l'arbre, et qui peut suivre toute trajectoire souhaitée.
