Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DETECTING MIDDLE EAR CONTENT AND/OR CONDITION
(FR) MÉTHODE ET DISPOSITIF DE DÉTECTION DE CONTENU ET/OU D'ÉTAT D'OREILLE MOYENNE
Abstract
(EN) Some embodiments relate to a device for assessing middle ear content or condition, comprising: a body which tapers towards a narrow end having a diameter small enough to be introduced into an external ear canal; a plurality of light sources arranged peripherally around the wide end of the body and directed such that the emitted light is transmitted through a solid portion of the body; a distally facing imager for obtaining images of the tympanic membrane; the device being in communication with circuitry configured to analyze spectral images obtained by the imager to assess middle ear content or condition.
(FR) L'invention, selon certains modes de réalisation, concerne un dispositif d'évaluation de contenu ou d'état d'oreille moyenne, comprenant : un corps qui va en diminuant en direction d'une extrémité étroite ayant un diamètre suffisamment petit pour être introduit dans un conduit auditif externe; une pluralité de sources de lumière disposées de manière périphérique autour de l'extrémité large du corps et orientées de façon à transmettre la lumière émise à travers une partie solide du corps; un imageur orienté de manière distale servant à obtenir des images de la membrane tympanique; le dispositif étant en communication avec des circuits conçus pour analyser des images spectrales obtenues par l'imageur de façon à évaluer un contenu ou un état d'oreille moyenne.
