Autofluorescence shines light on wounds
from McKnight's Long-Term Care News
Researchers at the University of Arkansas are using autofluorescence, the naturally occurring omission of light by cells, to diagnose and monitor chronic skin wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers and pressure wounds. The biomedical engineers used a process called label-free multiphoton microscopy to view tissue and generate 3-D maps of wound metabolism.
