Imaging of Dermal Trauma: Burns and Foreign Bodies

Abstract

Ultrasound allows noninvasive burn depth evaluation and on-site diagnosis with high-resolution point-of-care units. Wound healing and complications may be serially observed. Nonradiopaque foreign bodies quickly detected allow image-guided removal with decreased morbidity. 3D volumetric mapping shows nerves and vessels as well as fragments that lie outside the initial point of entry.
