Terahertz Spectroscopic Imaging for Diagnosis of Burn Severity

nigms logo
The American Burn Association has reported that each year approximately 450,000 burn injuries receive medical treatment in the U.S. Skin burns are classified into 4 grades of severity during triage, which in turn determines their distinct course of clinical treatment. For example, superficial partial-thickness burns can heal spontaneously over a 2- to 3-week period, whereas deep partial-thickness and full-thickness burns require excision and surgical skin grafting procedures. However...

The proposed project will make significant contributions in imaging and sensing applications of various types of objects and materials and will contribute significantly to health monitoring, homeland security and medical applications. The broad scientific importance of terahertz technology is attested by the number of research programs and publications working to develop terahertz metrology techniques for a broad range of applications, including medical imaging, organic and polymer material science, and study of chiral molecules, amino acids and metamaterials.
