Title (EN) TRANSESOPHAGEAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY SIMULATOR
(FR) SIMULATEUR D'ÉCHOCARDIOGRAPHIE TRANSOESOPHAGIENNE
Abstract:
(EN) A simulator system can be used to train personnel regarding transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) performance techniques. TEE is an ultrasonic imaging modality that can be used to capture images of a subject's heart. An imaging probe is inserted into the esophagus of the subject and positioned/aimed toward the subject's heart to capture the images. The TEE training system described is a system for ultrasonic diagnosis training (e.g., targeting the heart) which can be operated using an actual echocardiography machine used in clinic setting, and allows the practice of both acquisition and manipulation of images by the user so as to provide multiple aspects of learning 3D TEE.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de simulateur pouvant être utilisé afin de former le personnel concernant des techniques de réalisation d'échocardiographie transoesophagienne (TEE). La TEE constitue une modalité d'imagerie ultrasonore pouvant être utilisée afin de capturer des images du cœur d'un patient. Une sonde d'imagerie est insérée dans l'œsophage du sujet et positionnée/dirigée vers le cœur du patient afin de capturer les images. Le système de formation de TEE de l'invention constitue un système de formation par diagnostic ultrasonore (par exemple, dirigé vers le cœur) pouvant être exploité à l'aide d'une machine d'échocardiographie réelle utilisée dans un réglage clinique, et permet la pratique à la fois de l'acquisition et de la manipulation d'images par l'utilisateur de façon à fournir des aspects multiples d'apprentissage de TEE 3D.
