BACKGROUND Measurement of limb volume is helpful for the evaluation and follow-up of edema, especially in patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) or lymphedema. Water displacement (WD) is the reference method for limb volumetry but is not really suitable for clinical routine. Indirect volumetry based on circumference measurements as well as the(More)
We present a new approach for the evaluation of the biomechanical properties of lower limb veins based on the simultaneous measurements of the vein cross-sectional area with B-mode ultrasound imaging and of the force exerted on the skin by the ultrasound probe. Ongoing clinical trials allowed us to identify a behavioral model of lower limb veins without and(More)
Ultrasound examination is the first line procedure for the diagnosis and follow-up of cardiovascular diseases. Instrumenting an ultrasound probe with a force sensor may improve thenon-invasive measurement of arterial biomechanical parameters (diameter, pulsatility, intima-media thickness and flow-dependent dilation) by measuring and controlling the force(More)
Breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) is a debilitating condition. The recommended treatment is based on decongestive lymphedema therapy (DLT) with two separate phases: a short-term intensive phase to reduce lymphedema volume and a long-term maintenance phase to stabilize it. Optimizing compression therapy and compliance during maintenance phase are key(More)
