Annual CAWC Conference in Niagara Falls

22nd Annual CAWC Conference in Niagara Falls

The MolecuLight i:X Imaging Device was highly represented in the Oral Poster Presentations Infection Session at the 22nd Annual CAWC Conference in Niagara Falls.

Over 600 registrants and 230 Industry Personnel attended the CAWC Conference, November 3-6 in Niagara Falls.

As a corporate sponsor, MolecuLight exhibited to showcase the MolecuLight i:X Imaging Device and was excited to participate and talk to Canadian clinicians. The revolutionary handheld device immediately visualizes potentially harmful bacteria in chronic wounds without contrast agents or patient contact, and a measurement application for measuring wound size.

During Oral Poster Presentation Session 24 on Friday, November 4th, the following posters were presented:

  • Point-of-Care Fluorescence Imaging Device Guides Cleaning and Patient Education in Obese Patients with Surgical Site Infections
    Presented by Rose Raizman RN-EC, MSc
  • Mapping Venous Ulcers Using Bacterial Autofluorescence to Identify Subgroups at Risk of Infection Post Debridement
    Presented by Stephan Landis, MD, FRCP(C)
  • Improved Detection of Clinically-Relevant Wound Bacteria Using Autofluorescence Image-Guided Sampling in Diabetic Foot Ulcers
    Presented by Kathryn Ottolino-Perry, PhD

Dr David Keast’s Saturday morning power breakfast presentation ‘Infection and Biofilm. What do we really know?’ mentioned how bedside detection of bacteria can help with guided debridement and reducing use of systemic antibiotics.
