The use of deep-tissue multiwavelength imaging is of paramount importance in clinical settings as a noninvasive solution to identify andmonitor the progression of decubitus ulcers. A point-of-care multiwavelength imager is being developed, whose utility results from the provision of important physiological characteristics and blood flow metrics via analysis of deep-tissue response to light. The noninvasive real-time monitoring and analysis of tissue focusing on wound imaging is integral, because it allows for quantitative in situ measurements that characterize tissue to assess the progress of either tissue healing or necrosis.
