Abstract

Portable bimodal probe intended to be applied to a biological tissue to be examined, the probe comprising: - an ultrasonic transducer (34, 63) configured to transmit ultrasonic waves into the tissue and to receive ultrasonic waves reflected by the tissue, the transducer extending along a transverse axis; - at least two optodes (32, 60, 62a, 62b) arranged on either side of the transverse axis, such that the transducer extends between the two optodes; - each optode comprising a housing (52, 61), the housing comprising: a light transmitter (31) configured to transmit a light wave to the tissue; and/or an optical detector (32) configured to detect a light wave propagated by the tissue; - the optodes being designed such that at least one light transmitter and at least one optical detector are arranged on either side of the transducer; - at least one optical detector having a detection surface (53, 63a, 63b) formed of a semiconductor material and connected to an electronic card (54).
