Title
(EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR IN-VIVO POSITIONING
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE POSITIONNEMENT IN VIVO
Abstract
(EN)
An In-Vivo Object (IVO) location determination system, a method for providing treatment to a patient, and a device, the IVO location determination system comprising: an external device adapted to be positioned externally to a body of a patient, the external device comprising one or more acoustic waves transmitters; an IVO comprising one or more acoustic waves receivers; a controller for controlling the transmission of acoustic waves by the acoustic waves transmitters; and a processor configured to determine a location of the IVO relative to the external device, based on time differences between transmission times and receiving times of acoustic waves, wherein the acoustic waves transmitters and the acoustic waves receivers include four or more transducers comprising acoustic waves receivers or acoustic waves transmitters.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de détermination d'emplacement d'objet in vivo (IVO), un procédé permettant de fournir un traitement à un patient, et un dispositif, le système de détermination d'emplacement IVO comprenant : un dispositif externe conçu pour être positionné à l'extérieur du corps d'un patient, le dispositif externe comprenant un ou plusieurs émetteurs d'ondes acoustiques ; un IVO comprenant un ou plusieurs récepteurs d'ondes acoustiques ; un dispositif de commande pour commander la transmission d'ondes acoustiques par les émetteurs d'ondes acoustiques ; et un processeur conçu pour déterminer un emplacement de l'IVO par rapport au dispositif externe, sur la base de différences temporelles entre des temps de transmission et des temps de réception des ondes acoustiques, les émetteurs d'ondes acoustiques et les récepteurs d'ondes acoustiques comprenant quatre transducteurs ou plus comprenant des récepteurs d'ondes acoustiques ou des émetteurs d'ondes acoustiques.
