WoundCon Spring 2021


Charles A. Andersen, MD, FACS, MAPWCA, Chief, Vascular/ Endovascular/ Limb Preservation and Medical Director of the Wound Care Clinic, Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, WA will discuss “Utility of Fluorescence Imaging for Detection of Bacterial Burden in Outpatient Wound Care Setting”. As context, elevated bacterial burden hinders wound healing. The MolecuLight i:X handheld point-of-care fluorescence imaging system enhances detection of elevated bacterial loads in wounds, when used in combination with clinical assessment. This session will provide an overview of how this technology works, how it can be easily incorporated into your clinical workflow, and how increased information on bacterial burden informs clinical decision making.
