  Purpose

The purpose of this study is:

-item one to use two new non-invasive technologies to evaluate scarring and swelling associated with chronic venous insufficiency.

The study hypothesis:

- item one non-invasive technologies can provide a tool for assessing risk of ulcer development based on the tissue edema and alteration.
