New microscopy technique can be used to study the progression of wound healing

Author(s): Riley Kleemeier

A new microscope developed by researchers at the DSK Center for Optical Molecular Imaging has the ability to track collagen that helps in wound healing and can visualize blood vessel distribution around the wound.

The microscope was used in a study to determine if currently available wound treatments cure the underlying condition itself, or just its symptoms. Researchers studied the healing process for a month to further develop this new technique.

The researchers now hope to continue refining the technique for its eventual use in routine studies of skin disorders and treatments.
