  Purpose

Currently, the primary method of determining burn depth is clinical assessment. Unfortunately, studies demonstrate that even experienced burn surgeons are accurate in their initial assessment in only 60-80% of wounds1. Underestimation of burn wound depth will lead to a delay in diagnosis, prolonged hospitalization, prolonged provision of painful costly procedures, and potentially hypertrophic and/keloid scarring with functional and cosmetic deformity. Overestimation of burn wound depth may lead to surgical wound excision with skin grafting that is potentially unnecessary.

Other Name: MI-LSI developed at UCI Beckman Laser Institute

Detailed Description:

Modulating Imaging is a noninvasive optical modality designed to create a 3-dimensional differential diagram of the metabolic functions of the tissue. Laser Speckle Imaging is a noninvasive optical modality designed to create a dynamic map of blood flow to an area of interest. Both have previously been used to on other disease entities to estimate the extent of pathology.
