Project Title Real-Time Flap Viability Monitoring during Facial Transplantation
Brief Description Over the last several years, my basic science research has focused on near infrared imaging (NIR) technologies to identify perfusion characteristics of flaps in reconstructive surgery. We are using two imaging modalities: Fluorescence-Assisted Resection and Exploration (FLARE) system and Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging (SFDI). We have successfully translated this technology from large animal models to first-in-human clinical trials.
