Monitoring the Response of Port Wine Stain Birthmarks to Laser Therapy With Wide-field Functional Imaging Technologies
The researcher at the Beckman Laser Institute develop non-invasive imaging modalities for assessment of port wine stain during laser therapy treatment of Port Wine Stain. The imaging modalities will be used to guide immediate retreatment of regions of persistent perfusion during the procedure.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Monitoring the Response of Port Wine Stain Birthmarks to Laser Therapy With Wide-field|
- Removal of Port Wine Stain [ Time Frame: Up to 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The proposed research is significant, because our image-guided surgery approach will show color images which will be used to adjust energy of the laser treatment, reducing ultimately the number of treatment sessions and the associated medical care burden.

Device: Laser Speckle Imaging
Assessment of port wine stain birthmarks to laser therapy
The researcher can use imaging system operates by projecting low-power near-infrared structured light patterns on to the tissue of interest in a non-contact, reflection geometry and then capturing the reflectance with a camera.The system can image the depth-resolved optical properties of in-vivo tissues, allowing rapid, non-invasive visualization of sub-surface structures of Port Wine Stain.
