Title (EN) ULTRASOUND TRANSDUCER WITH ELECTRODE FEELERS
(FR) TRANSDUCTEUR À ULTRASONS COMPORTANT DES PALPEURS À ÉLECTRODES
Abstract:
(EN) An elongate member (22) has a proximal portion and a distal portion. An extracorporeal controller (40) is coupled to the proximal portion of the elongate member, and includes a user interface (42) and control circuitry (44). An effector unit (30) is coupled to the distal portion of the elongate member, defines a longitudinal axis, and has a contracted state and an expanded state. The effector unit includes a plurality of electrodes (32) and an ultrasound transducer (34). The electrodes are operable by the control circuitry, and are disposed circumferentially around the central longitudinal axis of the effector unit. The ultrasound transducer is operable by the control circuitry. In the expanded state, each electrode is disposed further radially outward from (i) the central longitudinal axis of the effector unit, and (ii) the transducer compared to the contracted state, and the transducer is oriented to direct ultrasound radially outwardly.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un élément allongé (22) présentant une partie proximale et une partie distale. Un dispositif de commande extracorporel (40) est accouplé à la partie proximale de l’élément allongé, et comprend une interface utilisateur (42) et un circuit de commande (44). Une unité effectrice (30) est accouplée à la partie distale de l’élément allongé, délimitant un axe longitudinal, et présentant un état contracté et un état expansé. L’unité effectrice comprend une pluralité d’électrodes (32) et un transducteur à ultrasons (34). Les électrodes peuvent être actionnées par le circuit de commande, et sont disposées dans la circonférence autour de l’axe longitudinal central de l’unité effectrice. Le transducteur à ultrasons peut être actionné par le circuit de commande. Dans l’état expansé, chaque électrode est disposée en outre radialement vers l’extérieur depuis (i) l’axe longitudinal central de l’unité effectrice, et (ii) le transducteur comparé à l’état contracté, et le transducteur est orienté pour diriger les ultrasons radialement vers l’extérieur.
