Thermal imaging predicts venous leg ulcer healing

Jul 12, 2021 Radiology Updates

A team of researchers from Australia determined that thermal imaging can tell a provider within two weeks of an initial scan if a leg ulcer will heal within 12 weeks. This technique could replace the current digital strategies or invasive planimetric tracing. A non-contact method like thermal imaging would be ideal to use when managing wounds in the home setting to minimize physical contact and, therefore, reduce infection risk.

This technique accurately measures changes in wound size and other physiological parameters over time. It is also a more time-efficient and cost-effective method.
