    Thus, one aspect and/or embodiment of the present user interface is a user interface, such as one that can control and monitor the operations of an applicator such as the one described in Appendix A. The physical user interface, in general includes a display, such as a CRT monitor, LCD monitor or the like. The logical user interface includes a series of screens or views with each including various controls, status indicators and/or adjustments. The views can be rendered on the display device in such a manner that a single view occupies the entire display space or only a portion of the display space. Two or more views may be displayed simultaneously or, only one view can be displayed at a time.
  • [0036]
    Although the views can vary greatly, one or more of the views includes display elements that present data responsive to physiological signals obtained from the applicator, applicator parameter settings and treatment parameter settings. Physiological signals, in general, include signals that are obtained from the applicator device. More specifically, non-limiting examples of physiological signals may include a tissue RF resistance, a tissue firmness or flexibilty, temperature, moisture levels, and/or a fat thickness. Those skilled in the art will appreciate that other signals may also be included.
  • [0037]
    Applicator parameters, in general, include parameters that can be set by an operator for controlling the operating characteristics of the applicator. As non-limiting examples, the applicator parameters may include a vacuum pressure level, an RF power level, an RF temperature, an RF electrodes temperature, an ultrasound frequency, an ultrasound time-averaged power, an ultrasound peak power and an ultrasound scan depth.
  • [0038]
    The treatment parameters, in general, may be used to control the overall treatment session. Non-limiting examples of treatment parameters include a total treatment time, a treatment progress and an on-line measurements of said physiological signals. The on-line measurements can then be fed back into the system and heuristically used to determine further treatments, augment the treatment, or otherwise adjust the treatment. In various embodiments, a treatment area definition may be included as a treatment parameter to instruct/control the area to be treated. In other embodiments, the treatment area may be a physiological signal that is received based on the physical location of the applicator. Yet in other embodiments, the treatment area may be defined by applicator parameters.
  • [0039]
    In some embodiments of the invention, one or more of the parameters, including the applicator parameters and/or the treatment parameters can be manually set, automatically set, a combination of both manually and automatically set, automatically set in response to detected physiological settings and/or automatically set in response to detected physiological settings and/or manual settings.
  • [0040]
    The views may also include one or more icons that occupy a portion of one or more of the various views. The icons, when actuated, may operate to invoke actions and settings of the system. For instance, the icons can be used to modify various treatment and applicator parameters. In addition, icons may be used simply as indicators or gauges.
  • [0041]
    As another non-limiting example, a first view may provide parameters setting tools while a second view presents treatment progress. An icon may be included in each of these views and when actuated, causes the display to toggle between these views.
  • [0042]
    FIG. 6 shows in detail the exemplary user interface element 600 for indicating fat variation (FIG. 4B, 490; FIG. 5B, 580), for applicators using vacuum pressure, such as described in Provisional U.S. Patent Application No. 61/081,110. The interface element 600 could be incorporated into embodiments such as those illustrated in FIGS. 4B and 5B. Fat variation indicator 600 comprises an external contour 610, simulating the applicator's inner cavity into which tissue is drawn by vacuum pressure, fat layer 620 and muscle layer 630, schematically drawn when the sucked tissue has reached the bottom 640 of the inner cavity. A numerical indication of the fat layer thickness may be provided in box 650. In operation, as the tissue is drawing into the cavity, interface element 600 shows the amount of tissue that has been drawn in by gradually filling the cavity interior with the drawn replication of fat and muscle.
  • [0043]
    Thus, this aspect of the present invention is a user interface element used in operating a fat reduction applicator that incorporates the use of RF and ultrasound energies and vacuum pressure. The graphical element 600 represents the actual applicator. As vacuum pressure applied to the applicator increases, the user interface element shows a filling of the cavity of element 610 with fat tissue 620 and muscle tissue 630. In the state illustrated in FIG. 6, the vacuum pressure has been increased to a point to fully draw the tissue into the cavity. It will be appreciated that for lower levels of vacuum pressure, the tissue may be only partially drawing into the cavity. It will also be appreciated that in some embodiments, sensors may be used on the inside of the cavity to sense when the tissue has been drawn into the cavity. These sensors may be used in lieu of or in addition to the vacuum pressure level to determine at what level the tissue has been drawn into the cavity. Regardless, the user interface element can be configured as a Boolean function to indicate that the tissue is fully drawn or not fully drawn into the cavity. Alternatively, the user interface element may show a gradual indication that the inner cavity of the applicator is being filled as the vacuum pressure increases.
  • [0044]
    In addition, the user interface element 600 can provide an indication with regards to the fat depth of the tissue sucked into the cavity. As shown by element 650, the fat tissue 620 can be graphically illustrated as a different color or shading layered over the muscle tissue 630. At the top of the cavity, ultrasound technology can be used to determine the depth of the fat before muscle tissue is encountered. In the illustrated embodiment, this is shown as being 8 mm.
  • [0045]
    FIG. 7 is a flow diagram illustrating the operation of one embodiment of the user interface for controlling the tissue treatment system or for operating a fat reduction applicator using RF and ultrasound energies. The user interface 700 initially allows and operator to define an area to be treated in a first display view 702. In some embodiments, this may include displaying a depiction of a human body, or even scanning and displaying the actual human body being treated, and then displaying this data. From the displayed information, an operator may select various regions or portions of the body for treatment. This selection is provided to the system as a definition of the area to be treated. In some embodiments, the user interface may allow the operator to make a selection between gender, body styles (thin, athletic, fat, stocky), body sizes, age (infant, toddler, child, teen, adult) etc.
  • [0046]
    Physiological signals of the defined area to be treated can be obtained or derived 704 and then displayed in a second display view 706. The applicator parameters for the treatment can be displayed, selected, adjusted and set in a third display view 708. Once the system is set up, the treatment can be monitored in the fourth display view 710.
  • [0047]
    The user interface may operate as a daisy chain between each of these successive views or, the views can be combined in various manners or all displayed such as a card deck onto a display.
  • [0048]
    A number of embodiments have been described. Nevertheless, it will be understood that various modifications may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the method. Accordingly, other embodiments are within the scope of the following claims.
