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).

Q. How deep does the laser light penetrate?
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. Is it contraindicated in pregnancy?
A. No.

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.
