New and novel methods of non-invasive vascular assessment: enhancing triage protocols in wound healing and limb salvage

This CE/CME/CECH webinar presented by Dr. Richard Neville, MD (Director, Inova Vascular) and moderated by Dr. Lee Rogers, DPM (Chief Medical Officer at Amputation Prevention Experts (APEx) Health Network), is supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Kent Imaging. A recording of the webinar will reside on the podiatry.com website for 12 months following the live event. Register now for what is sure to be an intriguing topic in the management of critical limb ischemia.

SnapshotNIR demonstrated to be clinically valuable in the management of CLI.

Continuous monitoring of the hemodynamic characteristics (perfusion of oxygenated blood) after revascularization is clinically relevant in monitoring and managing patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI). Handheld SnapshotNIR was used for longitudinal monitoring of tissue oxygenation to predict healing outcomes in patients with CLI at the AZH Wound and Vascular Center, Milwaukee, WI. “The hemodynamic changes measured using SnapshotNIR after endovascular revascularization and HBOT allow clinicians to use this technology to determine treatment protocols and understand healing characteristics in CLI.” Many additional benefits of this imaging technology were noted, including cost effectiveness, time efficiency and ability to integrate with existing EMR.
