Description

Description: TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to an ultrasonic probe, and particularly to an intraoperative probe.

[Technical Background of the Invention and Problems Thereof] With the expansion of the field of ultrasonic diagnosis in recent years, ultrasonic probes having a shape according to the site and application are used, and there are dozens of types. This is especially true for intraoperative probes, and in brain surgery etc., it is necessary to insert a probe from under the nose to see the brain, and a probe with a fairly long handle is required. Is required.

For this reason, it is necessary to prepare a plurality of probes having different lengths according to the application, and it is necessary to prepare a cylindrical one or a pistol-shaped one having a different shape depending on the site. There was a problem that it was poor in nature and was uneconomical.

[Object of the Invention] The present invention has been made in view of the above circumstances, and an object of the present invention is to provide an ultrasonic probe having improved workability and improved economical efficiency so as to be adaptable to many applications. It is a thing.

[Summary of the Invention] The present invention is intended to achieve the above object by making it possible to replace a holding member which is a handle of a probe.

[Examples of the Invention] Hereinafter, the present invention will be described specifically with reference to Examples.

FIG. 1 is an exploded perspective view showing an embodiment of the present invention.
Is a probe head including an ultrasonic transducer, 2 is a cable connected to the probe head and is connected to the ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus main body, and 3 is a handle as a cable holding member. The handle 3 also has a function as a grip portion of the probe. The handle 3 is an arc-shaped holding portion 3 for holding the cable 2.
c is formed on the first divided block 3a, and the second divided block 3a of the first divided block 3a is detachable from the arc-shaped portion 3c.
And a divided block 3b, and is configured to be a pistol type when they are engaged with each other so as to cover the cable 2. Engagement in this case is performed, for example, by forming each block with a synthetic resin and fitting it by a pressing force using the elasticity of the synthetic resin. Reference numeral 4 is a mark for positioning when the probe head 1 and the holding member 3 are assembled.

FIG. 2 shows another example of a holding member used in another embodiment of the present invention, which is constructed by fitting each of the arc-shaped divided blocks 6a and 6b in a state in which the cables are included. The cylindrical handle 6 is shown.

If the handle shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 is used, it can be used for various purposes with one type of probe head by exchanging it with a handle having a different length and shape depending on the use. It will be highly economical. Further, since the handle is composed of the divided blocks which can be fitted to each other, the handle can be attached / detached to / from the cable very well.

[Effects of the Invention] According to the present invention described in detail above, it is possible to cope with many uses,
It is possible to provide an ultrasonic probe with excellent workability and economy.

[Brief description of drawings]

FIG. 1 is an exploded perspective view showing an embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 2 is a perspective view of a holding member used in another embodiment. 1 ... Probe head, 2, 5 ... Cable, 3, 6 ... Holding member, 3a, 3b, 6a, 6b ... Divided block, 4 ... Mark.
