Little is known about the microvascular perfusion of the skin postnatally. Skin microvascular parameters can be assessed noninvasively with orthogonal polarization spectral imaging (OPS), a technique where, through the use of special optics, a virtual light source is created at a depth of 1 mm within the tissue. The light is absorbed by the Hb, yielding an image of the illuminated Hb-carrying structures in negative contrast. In nine term (weight 2100–4470 g) and 28 preterm infants (weight 550… CONTINUE READING
