Frequently Asked Questions
Q. When should scanning be performed?
A. Scanning is recommended between 48 hours and 5 days post-burn.
Q. How long does a scan take?
A. It depends upon the scan size and resolution, but typically between 40 seconds and 1 ½ minutes for a moorLDI2-BI scan and typically 4-8 seconds for a moorLDLS-BI scan. The duration of a scan session will depend upon the number of scans required to assess all of the burn(s).
A. As the skin and microvasculature are not homogenous this is a difficult question to answer. Approximately 2 mm is a good estimation. However, this has not been found to limit burn assessment accuracy in areas where skin is thicker (e.g. the back).
Q. Are the moorLDI2-BI and moorLDLS-BI DICOM compatible?
A. Yes, we have a DICOM compatible versions. Please contact us for further details.
Q. What is the largest area I can scan?
A. The largest area in a single scan is approximately 50cm x 50cm for a moorLDI2-BI scan and 15cm x 20cm for a moorLDLS-BI scan, approximately the size of an Adult hand. The moorLDLS-BI has a repeat scan mode which enables multiple scans to be taken across larger burns.
