    2. Noninvasive clinical assessment of port-wine stain birthmarks using current and future optical imaging technology: A review

      Noninvasive clinical assessment of port-wine stain birthmarks using current and future optical imaging technology: A review
      Port wine stain (PWS) birthmarks are one class of benign congenital vascular malformation. Laser therapy is the most successful treatment modality of PWS. Unfortunately, this approach has limited efficacy, with only 10% of patients experiencing complete blanching of the PWS. To address this problem, several research groups have developed technologies and methods designed to study treatment outcome and improve treatment efficacy. This paper reviews seven optical imaging techniques currently in ...

    3. Noninvasive assessment of burn wound severity using optical technology: A review of current and future modalities

      Noninvasive assessment of burn wound severity using optical technology: A review of current and future modalities
      Clinical examination alone is not always sufficient to determine which burn wounds will heal spontaneously and which will require surgical intervention for optimal outcome. We present a review of optical modalities currently in clinical use and under development to assist burn surgeons in assessing burn wound severity, including conventional histology/light microscopy, laser Doppler imaging, indocyanine green videoangiography, near-infrared spectroscopy and spectral imaging, in vivo capillary microscopy, orthogonal polarization spectral ...

    4. Revisiting optical clearing with dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)

      Functional optical characterization of disease progression and response to therapy suffers from loss of spatial resolution and imaging depth due to scattering. Here we report on the ability of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) alone to reduce the optical scattering of skin. We observed a threefold reduction in the scattering of skin with topical DMSO application. With an in vivo window chamber model, we observed a threefold increase in light transmittance through ...
