Stratification of Microvascular Disease Severity in the Foot Using Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging

Work from our combined UofA and USC team with our colleagues at Modulim. Samuel Jett 1, Mallory R Thompson 2, Shubhangi Awasthi 2, David J Cuccia 1, Tze-Woei Tan 2, David G Armstrong 3, Amaan Mazhar 1, Craig C Weinkauf 2 Background: Microvascular disease (MVD) describes systemic changes in the small vessels (~100 um diameter) that impair tissue oxygenation and perfusion. MVD is a common but poorly monitored complication of diabetes.... Continue Reading →
