Burn Care

Accurate classification of burn depth is crucial in determining a treatment plan, yet it remains difficult for even experienced clinicians.

Blood flow and oxygen saturation can aid medical professionals in determining the depth of burn. The Kent Imaging device is ideal for burn assessment because the imaging is fast (less than a second), non-contact, and painless for patients. Earlier determination of burn depth reduces the need (or delay) in surgery and avoids unnecessary surgery which leads to decreased costs for hospitals and lessens patient discomfort. In cases where a skin graft or tissue transplantation is required, the Kent Imaging device becomes an invaluable aid during surgery, and for monitoring progression during the healing process.
