  3. Incidence 10% of of patients in acute and extended stay facilities in the western world develop pressure ulcers. Annual cost ~$7billion LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC

  4. High Frequency Ultrasound • Ultrasound Biomicroscopy • Non-invasive visualization of skin and underlying two centimeters of soft tissue LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC

  5. Normal Skin Reflections from probe membrane Couplinggel Stratum corneum of epidermis Living strata of epidermis Reflections from acoustic interfaces (e.g. between collagen & hydrated ground substance) in papillary layer of dermis Reflections from acoustic interfaces in reticular layer of dermis Hypodermis (panniculus adiposus) Reflections from collagen & ground substance interfaces within fibrous supports of adipose tissue LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC

  6. The Technology • The Episcan I-200 utilizes high frequency broadband (single pulse) ultrasound and digital technology to image the skin and underlying soft tissue to very high resolution. • Captured images can be stored on hard disk, backed up on an integrated CD writer and electronically transferred for remote archiving or interpretation. Digital photographs can be integrated into the patient record.

  9. Pathogenesis “Pressure ulcers appear to begin in the subcutaneous tissue between the skin and bone as pockets of edema, indicated ultrasonically by pockets of weak reflections and progress by direct extension into dermal tissue” Paul Quintavalle, DPM Director Virtua Wound Care Center LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC / High-Resolution Ultrasound / LONGPORT, INC

  10. Induced Pre-Pressure Ulcer Pre-Pressure Ulcers were induced in healthy volunteers by weighting the heels for 1 hour. Edema was found to begin in the subcutaneous tissue Note the edema in the Sub-Q tissue 45 Minutes after pressure was removed.
