Diagnosing and Monitoring Chronic Wounds; Quinn Discusses Research in New 'Short Talks'
Biomedical engineering researcher Kyle Quinn uses multiphoton microscopy, a powerful imaging system capable of viewing biological tissue in three dimensions at the cellular level. The system allows him to generate 3D maps of wound metabolism.
"Skin wound healing is a really complex problem," Quinn says in this episode of Short Talks From the Hill, a research podcast of the University of Arkansas. "You have a number of different cell types with different metabolic demands, and they have to coordinate to reform the tissue. And at any point you can have a certain group of cells that may no longer respond as expected, and this causes some ensuing dysfunction in the healing process."
Using multiphoton microscopy, Quinn and his research team identified how cell metabolism changes during the healing process of chronic wounds. Their work could lead to new approaches for diagnosing and monitoring chronic skin wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers and pressure wounds, or bedsores.
