Improve Measurement Accuracy of Irregular Wound Borders with the MolecuLight i:X™

Due to this patient’s irregular wound borders, standard wound ruler measurements overestimated the wound area by more than 2-fold (36 cm2 with a wound ruler vs. 15.85 cm2 with the MolecuLight i:X Wound Measurement functionality).
