Development Study Using Vaginal Tactile Imager

2014-07-23 21:09:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective is to evaluate and optimize tactile imaging technology in evaluation of tissue elasticity parameters in the female pelvis.

Description

Pelvic organ prolapse affects 40-50% of women in US. This study aims to establish a reliable examination procedure, collect data necessary for assessing the performance of Vaginal Tactile Imaging sensors, assess clinical suitability of interface software and correlate elasticity measurements with clinical examination findings for normal versus prolapse conditions of the female pelvis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.

Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).

Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.

The prolapse or downward displacement of the VISCERA.

The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
