Q: How long does a scan take to complete?
A. It depends upon the scan size and resolution, but typically between 40 seconds and 1 ½ minutes for a moorLDI2-BI scan and typically 4-8 seconds for a moorLDLS-BI scan. The duration of a scan session will depend upon the number of scans required to assess all of the burn(s).
Q: How deeply does the laser light penetrate?
A. As the skin and microvasculature are not homogenous this can be a difficult question to answer. Approximately 2 mm is a good estimation. However, this has not been found to limit burn assessment accuracy in areas where skin is thicker (e.g. the back).
Q: Are the moorLDI2-BI and moorLDLS-BI DICOM compatible?
A. Yes, DICOM compatible versions are available. Please contact us for additional information.
Q: What is the largest area I can scan?
A. The largest area in a single scan is approximately 50cm x 50cm for a moorLDI2-BI scan and 15cm x 20cm for a moorLDLS-BI scan, approximately the size of an adult hand. The moorLDLS-BI has a repeat scan mode which enables multiple scans to be taken across larger burns.
Q: Is laser doppler imaging contraindicated in pregnancy?
Q: Why would I choose to use Laser Doppler Imaging?
- Early and accurate burn diagnosis from 48 hours post burn – avoiding unnecessary delays
- Non-contact imaging – pain free assessment with improved infection control
- Instant results – enables prompt assessment and treatment planning within the burns unit
- Clinically proven software with touch screen interface – easy to operate by burns team staff following training
- Unique colour-coded palette – easy to interpret, proven accuracy in numerous published studies and clinical trials
- CE marked, 510k registered specifically for clinical burn diagnosis and recommended by National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) – independent evidence of suitability for purpose
Q: So, Friend or Foe?
A: Undoubtably Friend. Laser Doppler imaging is an especially useful tool that offers you the opportunity to improve assessment accuracy to more than 96% – increasing your confidence in treatment decisions.
