Abstract

The diagnostic appts. includes a magnetic resonance system and a positioning device for the object under investigation, e.g. a patient. A light transmitter can be coupled to the positioning device at different positions. The light transmitter directs light via a fibre bundle towards the patient. The same portion of the patient can be illuminated regardless of the movement of the positioning device. The light source can be placed on different parts of the positioning device to illuminate different portions of the patient. The magnetic resonance system can be open or placed in a measurement tunnel.

Description

Insbesondere bei der Untersuchung eines Objektes mittels ei nes Magnetresonanzsystemes besteht häufig der Bedarf auch Licht zum Objekt zu führen, um somit einen Bereich auszu leuchten. often exists in particular in the investigation of an object by means of ei nes magnetic resonance system, the need also to guide light to the object, thus an area for For light.

Aus der DE 42 25 433 C2 ist ein Magnetresonanzsystem mit ei ner außerhalb eines Meßtunnels angeordneten Lichtquelle be kannt, deren Licht über eine Lichtleiteranordnung aus Licht leitfasern einem flächenhaften Lichtaustrittsbereich im Meß tunnel zugeführt wird. From DE 42 25 433 C2 describes a magnetic resonance system with egg ner outside a Meßtunnels arranged light source is be known, whose light is fed via a light conductor arrangement of light conductive fibers a surface light exit region in the measuring tunnel. Die Ankopplung einer vorzugsweise als Halogenlampe ausgebildeten Lichtquelle an die Lichtleiteran ordnung erfolgt über ein optisches Anschlußstück. The coupling of a preferably formed as a halogen lamp light source to the Lichtleiteran order via an optical connector.

Wird die Position des Objektes beispielsweise über eine Lage rungsvorrichtung verändert, so wird dann auch ein unter schiedlicher Bereich des Objektes beleuchtet. If the position of the object changes approximately device for example via a position, it is then also an illuminated area of ​​the object under schiedlicher. Dies ist nach teilig, da die Beleuchtung dann so verändert werden muß, daß der ursprüngliche Bereich wieder beleuchtet wird. This is by piece, because the lighting has to be changed so then that the original area is illuminated again.

Aufgabe der Erfindung ist es daher, eine medizindiagnostische Untersuchungseinrichtung der eingangs genannten Art so aus zu führen, daß bei einer Ortsveränderung des Objektes keine Nachführung der Beleuchtung erfolgen muß. The object of the invention is therefore to perform a medical diagnostic examination device of the type mentioned in such a way that there must be no tracking of the illumination at a change of location of the object.

Die Aufgabe wird erfindungsgemäß durch den Gegenstand des Pa tentanspruches 1 gelöst. The object is solved by the subject matter of the tentanspruches 1 Pa.

Vorteil der Erfindung ist, daß durch die Ankopplung der Lichtsendeeinrichtung an die Lagerungsvorrichtung auch bei einer Ortsveränderung der Lagerungsvorrichtung immer derselbe Bereich beleuchtet wird, so daß eine Nachführung nicht mehr erforderlich ist. The advantage of the invention that the same area is by the coupling of the light emitting device to the storage device even when a change in location of the bearing device is always illuminated, so that tracking is no longer required.

Weitere Vorteile und Einzelheiten der Erfindung ergeben sich aus der nachfolgenden Beschreibung eines Ausführungsbeispie les anhand der Zeichnung in Verbindung mit den Unteransprü chen. Further advantages and details of the invention will become apparent from the following description of Ausführungsbeispie les reference to the drawings in conjunction with the Unteransprü chen.

In der Figur ist ein in prinzipieller Weise dargestelltes Ma gnetresonanzsystem mit dem Bezugszeichen 1 gekennzeichnet. In the figure shown in a principle manner Ma is gnetresonanzsystem marked with the reference numerals. 1 Diesem Magnetresonanzsystem 1 ist eine Lagerungsvorrichtung 2 für ein Untersuchungsobjekt 3 zugeordnet, die räumlich ver stellbar ist. This magnetic resonance system 1 is assigned for an examination subject 3, a storage device 2 which is spatially adjustable ver. Das Licht einer Lichterzeugungseinrichtung 4 wird über ein Faserbündel 5 zu einer Lichtsendeeinrichtung 6 geleitet, die an die Lagerungsvorrichtung 2 angekoppelt ist. The light from a light generating means 4 is passed via a fiber bundle 5 to a light emitting device 6, which is coupled to the storage device. 2 Es ist somit möglich, auch bei einer Ortsveränderung der La gerungsvorrichtung 2 immer denselben Bereich des Untersu chungsobjektes 3 zu beleuchten. It is thus possible, even with a change of place of La delay device 2 is always the same area of the investi illuminate chung properties. 3 Vorzugsweise ist die Licht sendeeinrichtung 6 an unterschiedliche Stellen an die Lage rungsvorrichtung 2 ankoppelbar, so daß auch unterschiedliche Bereiche des Objektes 3 gegebenenfalls beleuchtet werden kön nen. Preferably, the light is coupled transmitting means 6 to different locations at the location approximately device 2, so that different regions of the object 3 Kgs optionally be illuminated NEN. Es hat sich als besonders vorteilhaft erwiesen, wenn ein Bereich der Lichtsendeeinrichtung 6 über einen Schwanenhals ( 7 ) geführt und somit das Licht an einen vorbestimmten Ort der Lagerungsvorrichtung 2 geleitet werden kann. It has proved to be particularly advantageous when a portion of the light emitting device 6 out a goose neck (7) and thus the light can be guided to a predetermined location of the storage device. 2 Das Magne tresonanzsystem 2 kann, wie dargestellt, als offenes System ausgeführt sein oder aber auch einen Meßtunnel aufweisen. The Magne tresonanzsystem 2 may, as shown, be designed as an open system, or can have a Meßtunnel.

Vorzugsweise weist sich die Schwanenhalslampe durch die spe ziellen Eigenschaften aus, daß sie nicht leitend ist und aus keinem ferromagnetischen Material besteht. Preferably, the gooseneck lamp made by the spe cial properties that it is non-conductive and is made of any ferromagnetic material. Ferner ist sie au toklavierbar oder kann mit einem Plastiküberzug versehen sein, so daß eine sterile Bedienung der Lampe möglich ist. Further, it is au toklavierbar or may be provided with a plastic coating, so that a sterile operation of the lamp is possible.
