Ability of Modulated Imaging and Laser Speckle Imaging to Determine Burn Wound Severity and Healing Potential
According to the National Burn Repository 2007, the most common type of burn injury is a partial thickness burns. The current standard of care for partial thickness burns is two weeks of topical therapy and wound care. Burns that do not heal within two weeks undergo surgical excision and skin grafting.

Modulated Imaging and Laser Speckle Imaging
Device: Modulated Imaging and Laser Speckle Imaging
Other Name: MI-LSI developed at UCI Beckman Laser Institute
Researcher can use the combination of Modulated Imaging and Laser Speckle Imaging can be used as an adjuvant to standard clinical evaluation to gauge burn wound and severity of infection. Researcher can image the burn wounds of and compare with current standard of care, clinical exam, and can use the outcomes information in terms of time to healing and treatment
Modulating Imaging is a noninvasive optical modality measure the metabolic functions of the burn wound.
Laser Speckle Imaging is a noninvasive optical modality can measure blood flow of burn wound.
