Description and analysis of treatments for port-wine stain birthmarks.
Port-wine stain (PWS) birthmarks are congenital, low-flow vascular malformations of the skin. Lasers are the modality of choice for the treatment of PWS birthmarks, and for most patients theExpand

Reversible dissociation of collagen in tissues.
The turbidity of most biologic tissues hinders the use of lasers for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Hyperosmotic agents such as glycerol have been used to alter the optical scatteringExpand

Treatment of cutaneous vascular lesions using multiple‐intermittent cryogen spurts and two‐wavelength laser pulses: Numerical and animal studies
Presently, cutaneous vascular lesions are treated using a single cryogen spurt and single laser pulse (SCS‐SLP), which do not necessarily produce complete lesion removal in the majority of patients.Expand

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 ofExpand

Linear response range characterization and in vivo application of laser speckle imaging of blood flow dynamics.
Noninvasive blood flow imaging can provide critical information on the state of biological tissue and the efficacy of approaches to treat disease. With laser speckle imaging (LSI), relative changesExpand

Laser speckle imaging for monitoring blood flow dynamics in the in vivo rodent dorsal skin fold model.
The rodent dorsal skin fold model is used routinely as a means to study changes in microvasculature flow and architecture (Barton et al., 2001; Friesenecker et al., 1994; Gourgouliatos et al., 1990;Expand

Step and flash imprint lithography: a new approach to high-resolution patterning
An alternative approach to lithography is being developed based on a dual-layer imprint scheme. This process has the potential to become a high-throughput means of producing high aspect ratio,Expand

Determination of human skin optical properties from spectrophotometric measurements based on optimization by genetic algorithms.
We present an initial study on applying genetic algorithms (GA) to retrieve human skin optical properties using visual reflectance spectroscopy (VRS). A three-layered skin model consisting of 13Expand
