    Non-invasive assessment of healing of bacteria infected and uninfected wounds using optical coherence tomography
    Bacterial infection is one of the main predisposing factors for the delay in wound healing. To facilitate a timely decision for correct therapy, it is important to accurately monitor the morphological changes in the infected wounds using noninvasive tools. In the present study, we have explored the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for monitoring the healing of superficial wounds infected with Staphylococcus aureus in mice under in vitro and in vivo conditions and studied the changes in collagen birefringence in the infected wounds. The tape stripping method was used for generating superficial skin wounds in mice and wounds were ...
