Why Wound-Mapping®?

Diagnosing bone infections involves keen clinical assessment which leads to diagnostic studies. Initially, radiographs may be taken along with a bacterial culture and sensitivity.

Unfortunately, radiographs are often two weeks behind actual bony changes that may be occurring. More expensive studies including MRI may be performed.

Although MRI is 100% sensitive to bone pathology, it is expensive; there are many known contraindications and the specificity is lower leading to false positives. Further, MRI exams usually need to be scheduled which delays a definitive diagnosis increasing patient morbidity.

Wound Mapping Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging method that has no contraindications. It is about 1/10 the cost of an MRI and may be performed at patient's bedside or during a routine clinic visit. Learn More
