  • Publication number: 20190083178
    Abstract: A C-arm, or a mobile intensifier device, is one example of a medical imaging device that is based on X-ray technology. Because a C-arm device can display high-resolution X-ray images in real time, a physician can monitor progress at any time during an operation, and thus can take appropriate actions based on the displayed images. Monitoring the images, however, is often challenging during certain procedures, for instance during procedures in which attention must be paid to the patient's anatomy as well as a medical imaging device display. In an example, a surgical instrument assembly includes a processor, a surgical instrument configured to operate on an anatomical structure, and a display coupled to the processor and attached to the surgical instrument. The display can be configured to display visual information comprising X-ray images generated by a medical imaging device.

  • Publication number: 20190038214
    Abstract: In one example, a sensor is configured to be implanted into a patient's body. The sensor has at least one sensing element, a measurement device in communication with the at least one sensing element, and an internal wireless communicator in communication with the measurement device. The at least one sensing element includes a resistor, and the measurement device includes a capacitor. The measurement device measures a discharge time of the capacitor through the resistor so as to generate a measurement value that is proportional to a value of an anatomical property of the anatomical body, such as strain, that is observed by the sensor. The internal wireless communicator wirelessly communicates the measurement value through skin of the patient to an external wireless communicator situated outside of the patient's body.
