Title (EN) ENDOSCOPE LOCALIZATION USING TRANSMISSION ULTRASONOGRAPHY
(FR) LOCALISATION D'ENDOSCOPE PAR ÉCHOGRAPHIE DE TRANSMISSION
Abstract:
(EN) A system for determining a location of a tool within a patient includes a tool and a sensor. The tool is configured to be introduced into a patient. The tool includes a flexible tubular member, a laser coupled to the flexible tubular member, and a cap coupled to the laser. A plurality of waves are generated when a beam of light from the laser shines upon the cap. The sensor is configured to be coupled to an exterior of the patient. The sensor is configured to receive the waves, and a location of the tool within the patient is configured to be determined based at least partially upon the waves received by the first sensor.
(FR) Un système pour déterminer une localisation d'un outil à l'intérieur d'un patient comprend un outil et un capteur. L'outil est conçu pour être introduit dans un patient. L'outil comprend un élément tubulaire flexible, un laser couplé à l'élément tubulaire flexible, et un capuchon couplé au laser. Une pluralité d'ondes sont générées lorsqu'un faisceau de lumière provenant du laser rayonne sur le capuchon. Le capteur est configuré pour être couplé à un extérieur du patient. Le capteur est configuré pour recevoir les ondes, et une localisation de l'outil à l'intérieur du patient est configurée pour être déterminée sur la base au moins partiellement des ondes reçues par le premier capteur.
