Title
(EN) TRANSDUCER-MOUNTED NEEDLE ASSEMBLY WITH IMPROVED ELECTRICAL CONNECTION TO POWER SOURCE
(FR) ENSEMBLE AIGUILLE MONTÉ SUR TRANSDUCTEUR À CONNEXION ÉLECTRIQUE AMÉLIORÉE AVEC UNE SOURCE D'ALIMENTATION
Abstract
(EN)
A needle assembly for use with an ultrasound imaging system includes a needle having a proximal end and a distal end. The distal end is adapted to be inserted into a patient. The needle assembly also includes a transducer mounted to an exterior surface of the needle at the distal end. Further, the needle assembly includes a flexible printed circuit board mounted on the exterior surface of the needle from the proximal end to the distal end. As such, the flexible printed circuit board electrically connects the transducer to a power source
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un ensemble aiguille destiné à être utilisé avec un système d'imagerie ultrasonore comprenant une aiguille comportant une extrémité proximale et une extrémité distale. L'extrémité distale est conçue pour être insérée dans le corps d'un patient. L'ensemble aiguille comprend également un transducteur monté sur une surface extérieure de l'aiguille au niveau de l'extrémité distale. En outre, l'ensemble aiguille comprend une carte de circuit imprimé flexible montée sur la surface extérieure de l'aiguille de l'extrémité proximale à l'extrémité distale. Ainsi, la carte de circuit imprimé flexible assure la connexion électrique du transducteur et d'une source d'alimentation.
