    Classification of burn injury using Raman spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography: An ex-vivo study on porcine skin

    Accurate depth assessment of burn wounds is a critical task to provide the right treatment and care. Currently, laser Doppler imaging is able to provide better accuracy compared to the standard clinical evaluation. However, its clinical applicability is limited by factors like scanning distance, time, and cost. Precise diagnosis of burns requires adequate structural and functional details. In this work, we evaluated the combined potential of two non-invasive optical modalities, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Raman spectroscopy (RS), to identify degrees of burn wounds (superficial partial-thickness (SPT), deep partial-thickness (DPT), and full-thickness (FT)). OCT provides morphological information, whereas, RS provides ...
