The patent application (Publication Number: US20230408329A1) describes a novel qualitative and quantitative beam assessment device designed to interface with an ablation system. The qualitative beam assessment device includes a camera housed within a catheter connector to record an image of the beam emitted by the optical box, with an attenuator to adjust the beam intensity. Additionally, an RFID chip is integrated to regulate the energy density of the beam. On the other hand, the quantitative beam assessment device measures the energy of the beam using an energy sensor and a guiding component to direct the beam accurately. Both devices are equipped with communication components to transmit data to a processor for analysis.

Furthermore, the patent application outlines a comprehensive system for testing an ablation system, incorporating both qualitative and quantitative beam assessment devices. The system includes a processor that receives data from both devices to determine the qualitative and quantitative conditions of the beam. The system also features a display device to showcase the results. The qualitative condition includes identifying failure modes such as misalignment of the beam, while the quantitative condition assesses factors like energy distribution and overall energy levels. The system aims to provide a thorough evaluation of the ablation system's performance, ensuring optimal functionality and safety during medical procedures.
