Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR IMAGING BLOOD IN A TARGET REGION OF TISSUE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ D'IMAGERIE DU SANG DANS UNE RÉGION CIBLE DE TISSU
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, an apparatus for imaging blood within a target region of tissue includes an imaging device configured to output image data associated with light received by the imaging device having a first and second spectral ranges, wherein the absorptivity by blood of light having the first spectral range is less than the absorptivity by blood of light having the second spectral range, and a controlling element configured to capture the image data associated with light received by the imaging device and to process the captured image data associated with light having the first spectral range and the captured image data associated with light having the second spectral range to generate compound image data associated with an amount of blood within the target region of tissue.
(FR) Dans certains modes de réalisation, un appareil d'imagerie du sang à l'intérieur d'une région cible de tissu comprend un dispositif d'imagerie configuré pour délivrer en sortie des données d'image associées à la lumière reçue par le dispositif d'imagerie présentant une première plage spectrale et une seconde plage spectrale, l'absorptivité par le sang de la lumière de première plage spectrale étant inférieure à l'absorptivité par le sang de la lumière de seconde plage spectrale, et un élément de commande configuré pour capturer les données d'image associées à la lumière reçue par le dispositif d'imagerie et pour traiter les données d'image capturées associées à la lumière de première plage spectrale et les données d'image capturées associées à la lumière de seconde plage spectrale pour générer des données d'image composées associées à une quantité de sang à l'intérieur de la région cible de tissu.
