(EN) HEATABLE CONTACT SURFACE FOR USE IN MEDICAL IMAGING
(FR) SURFACE DE CONTACT CHAUFFANTE DESTINÉE À ÊTRE UTILISÉE DANS UNE IMAGERIE MÉDICALE
Abstract
(EN)
The present application relates to a heatable system suitable for use in a patient contacting plate used in medical imaging. The system comprises a heatable laminated structure with a plurality of layers each of which is transparent to imaging radiation and allows for thermal transfer. A heater layer, located between two of the plurality of layers, comprises an electrically resistive material and is transparent to imaging radiation. The laminated structure further includes a conductive path suitable for use in coupling a voltage source to the electrically resistive material in the heatable laminated structure, whereby the laminated structure is heated when current is passing through the conductive path. Also disclosed is a compression plate system and an imaging medical device comprising the heatable system. Methods of making the heatable system and of using it in medical imaging are also disclosed.

La présente invention concerne un système chauffant approprié pour être utilisé dans une plaque de contact avec un patient utilisée dans une imagerie médicale. Le système comprend une structure stratifiée chauffante ayant une pluralité de couches, chacune d'entre elles étant transparente au rayonnement d'imagerie et permettant un transfert thermique. Une couche d'élément chauffant, située entre deux couches de la pluralité de couches, comprend un matériau électriquement résistif et est transparente au rayonnement d'imagerie. La structure stratifiée comprend en outre un chemin conducteur approprié pour être utilisé pour coupler une source de tension au matériau électriquement résistif dans la structure stratifiée chauffante, ce par quoi la structure stratifiée est chauffée lorsqu'un courant passe à travers le chemin conducteur. La présente invention concerne également un système de plaque de compression et un dispositif médical d'imagerie comprenant le système chauffant. La présente invention concerne également des procédés de fabrication du système chauffant et d'utilisation de celui-ci dans une imagerie médicale.
