SnapshotNIR Shown to Correlate to TCOM in Recent Publication

Check out a new study measuring tissue oxygenation in hard-to-heal wounds published in the Journal of Wound Care , comparing the use of TCOM to NIRS imaging with SnapshotNIR. The lead author, Dr. Tom Serena, concluded that both forms of measurement were well correlated but that SnapshotNIR  provided a number of significant advantages: immediate point-of-care visualization of tissue oxygenation using a handheld device, the entire imaging procedure takes only a few minutes to perform and removes operator dependence, and with no patient contact, allows for measurements directly in the wound bed.  

Advancing Tissue Assessment: SnapshotNIR imaging similar to ICG fluorescence angiography

A new study published by Jones, G. et al. in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (PRS) January 2020 highlights the comparable accuracy between SnapshotNIR and ICG fluorescence angiography in assessing flap outcome in the immediate post-operative period. The article “Snapshot Multispectral Imaging Is Not Inferior to SPY Laser Fluorescence Imaging When Predicting Murine Flap Necrosis” shares results that are extremely encouraging for the use of SnapshotNIR intraoperatively in flaps in a timely and non-invasive manner. https://journals.lww.com/plasreconsurg/Abstract/2020/01000/Snapshot_Multispectral_Imaging_Is_Not_Inferior_to.29.aspx
