Acute Wounds

1st study to describe healing outcomes of dehisced perineal wounds & factors associated with delayed healing

The presence of fluorescence significantly reduced the odds of wound healing in ≤ 4 weeks by 76%

Efficient, accurate diagnosis of cellulitis critical to avoid costly complications

Unique pattern of red fluorescence extending beyond the wound was observed in all cases of wound-related cellulitis

Fluorescence imaging aided in the early diagnosis of wound-related cellulitis, resulting in the initiation of oral antibiotics without delay, avoiding progressive cellulitis

Fluorescence images for identifying bacterial loads of concern was 100% vs 63% sensitivity of CSS

Fluorescence images for identifying bacterial loads of concern was 92% compared to 82% accuracy of CSS

Fluorescence correctly identified all 8 wounds that were positive for significant bacterial growth on cultures

This is an initial evaluation of using the MolecuLight i:X in the management of burns

The utility and efficacy of the MolecuLight i:X is evident due to the correlation between microbiology results and fluorescence images

The i:X may be able to detect bacterial load before an infection & subsequent graft failure, thereby shortening lengths of hospital stay & improving overall healing
