Diffuse photon density wave (DPDW) methodology at Near Infrared frequencies has been used to calculate absorption and scattering from wounds of healthy and diabetic rats. The diffusion equation for semi-infinite media is being used for calculating the absorption and scattering coefficients based on measurements of phase and amplitude with a frequency domain(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of using diffuse near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in predicting wound healing in diabetic foot ulcers was demonstrated by conducting a pilot human study. METHOD Sixteen chronic diabetic wounds were followed and assessed for subsurface oxyhemoglobin concentration using the NIRS device. Weekly measurements were conducted until there(More)
Wound healing is a complex process with many components and interrelated processes on a microscopic level. This paper addresses a macroscopic view on wound healing based on an energy conservation argument coupled with a general scaling of the metabolic rate with body mass M as γ M where 1 0 < < γ. Our three main findings are 1) the wound healing rate peaks(More)
