Abstract:

This research will develop an instrument to aid in the rapid, non-invasive measurement of ulcer sizhealing. The device will quantitative wound volume using a structured laser light, with optical imagcurve-fitting methodologies. This research is based on the hypothesis that when structured light illknown angle, the reflected light will contain information about wound topology which can be used tovolume. A video imaging system will be constructed to generate wound contour maps and determine wounII will determine the system¿s ability to assist in the evaluation of treatments designed to induceThe instrument will provide clinicians with a noncontact, easy to use wound-volume measurement thatand which can replace currently employed methods that require filling the wound with solid materialsprovide rapid, easily interpreted image displays and be technically easy to use.
