Burns

This review summarizes clinical evidence from the last 5 years evaluating the diagnostic accuracy and impact of adding fluorescence imaging to standard of care wound assessment

Several studies reported vast improvements in detection of bacterial burden in burn wounds with the addition of fluorescence imaging to standard of care

Incorporation of fluorescence imaging into patient care can change the trajectory of wound healing, leading to interventions that placed non-healing wounds on a healing trajectory


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
