    Comparison of Normal Skin and Thermal and Chemical Burn Wounds using Vibrational Optical Coherence Tomography

    he search for methods to evaluate the extent and severity of skin lesions, such as burns and other skin disorders, has been a subject of extentive research. While suction testing, elastography and other tests can be done noninvasively on intact skin, these tests cannot be done on burns and open wounds due to the possible injury that may occur. In addition, they fail to yield comparable results obtained using destructive tests such as uniaxial tensile testing. We have developed a technique to combine optical coherence tomography (OCT) with vibrational analysis (VOCT) to non-invasively and non-destructively evaluate the properties of skin ...
