Warfighters and civilians in a warzone can sustain burn damage through numerous mechanisms. Although very shallow and deep burns are easily identified by an experienced burn surgeon, there exists a critical need for next generation imaging technology to predict burn depth and boundaries of partial thickness burns. Proper diagnosis can prevent prolonged procedures, unnecessary surgery and the risk of complications from infection. Oceanit proposes a novel"Burn Assessment Depth Detection"system to improve accuracy and detection of edema, changes in microvascular perfusion, and tissue spectral signatures as a result of burn injury. These parameters indicate the depth of injury and whether it will heal on its own, or require debridement and surgery. Drawing on several proprietary advances in image processing and battlefield treatment of intracranial hemorrhage we will prototype a dual-mode imaging system for non-invasive and non contact imaging of burn injury and test system performance characteristics.
