‘Multiparametric Spectral Patient Imaging’ is a project in cooperation with the Diaspective Vision GmbH. The aim of the project is the development of a flexible and safely applicable monitoring system for several clinical use cases based on an innovative HSI camera. This new monitoring system will determine relevant parameters of cutaneous perfusion and surface moisture and appropriately visualizes them. Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) is a combination of spectroscopy and digital imaging and divides the electromagnetic spectrum into many bands. Therefore, hyperspectral images provide more information per pixel than the results of every other imaging technology.
Thus, the treating physician can make use of a further informative approach for individual process assessment of the overall condition of the patient in several clinical environments. Such an advanced monitoring system for anesthesia is not available yet and constitutes a crucial clinical development.
