Feasibility of 3D Stucture Sensing for accurate assessment of chronic wound dimensions

Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery Annual Congress. June, 2015.

Ruler-based assessments can overestimate wound area by up to 44%. Tracing wounds using planimetry can give a better estimate of size but is time consuming and still highly variable between operators. Simple point-of-care solution that enables comprehensive 3D wound assessment on a mobile device would significantly improve the care and outcome. For this purpose we determine the feasibility of the current prototype and the implemented algorithms on phantom measurements with well know geometry in this research.
