Abstract
In order to address the Army’s need for a handheld device capable of locating any foreign body as well as differentiate between viable and non-viable tissue, ChromoLogic LLC (CL) proposes to develop a Debridement And Vitality Assessment by Near Infrared Spectroscopy (DAVANIS) system. The non-imaging, miniature finger mounted device will extend the tactile senses of the surgeon up to 50mm into a wound region, enabling rapid detection of any non-viable moiety to within a few millimeter resolution. In Phase I, CL will build a complete system prototype and demonstrate the efficacy of the technology with phantom tissue models. During Phase II, CL will perform detailed animal testing at our partner GLP test facility and prepare to obtain regulatory approval for the device.
