D7.1 - Spectral Imaging Skin Probe for Chronic Wounds Therapy Evaluation

F. Erfurth, B. Nyuyki, A. Scheibe & W. D. Schmidt
We present a skin imaging probe for an objective assessment of chronic wounds with regard to the healing process. It is based on the principle of Spectral Imaging, which represents a combination of classical spectroscopy and digital image processing, whereby a spectrum is recorded for each pixel simultaneously. Component analysis or other classification methods can be applied to the spectral data, for instance a score is computed that describes the state of a wound numerically....
