  • Publication number: 20210030394
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to the assessment and imaging of bodily organs, including transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). For example, some embodiments of the present disclosure provide for a TEE probe having removable or modular components, such that the TEE probe can be disassembled and reassembled by a physician. In some embodiments, the TEE probe may be compatible with components, such as gastroscopes, having various differences in size, shape, and configuration. In some embodiments, a TEE probe may comprise a gastroscope and a handle, wherein the handle and the gastroscope are removably coupled to one another by an interface, such that when the gastroscope and handle are removably coupled, a user can control various functions of the gastroscope, such as the ultrasonic imaging of an ultrasonic transducer of the gastroscope, and the movement of a distal portion of the gastroscope.

  • Publication number: 20200359997
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to the assessment and imaging of bodily organs, including transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). For example, some embodiments of the present disclosure provide for remote and/or wireless control of a transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) probe. For example, in some embodiments a TEE probe comprises a gastroscope for insertion into a patient's esophagus, a handle coupled to the gastroscope, and a wireless module coupled to the handle and configured to receive a command signal from a user to remotely control aspects of a TEE scan. Some aspects to be controlled by a user remotely may include movement of a distal portion of the gastroscope within the patient's esophagus. Other aspects may include initiation of an ultrasonic imaging procedure by an ultrasonic transducer. In some embodiments, the wireless module may also be configured to wirelessly transmit electrical signals to a console.

  • Publication number: 20200176922
    Abstract: A medical imaging device connector assembly for connecting a medical imaging device to a terminal of a medical imaging system is provided. The medical imaging device connector assembly includes a top housing having a first base cutout; a bottom housing configured to couple to the top housing, the bottom housing including a second base cutout; a base housing positioned within the first and second base cutouts; a plurality of printed circuit boards (PCBs) disposed between the top housing and the bottom housing; an electrical connector positioned within the base housing; and an elastic seal member surrounding a circumference of the base housing. When the top housing is coupled to the bottom housing, the elastic seal member is compressed by the plurality of PCBs in a first direction and by the top and bottom housings in a second direction perpendicular to the first direction to prevent fluid ingress.
