Paper Abstract

The determination of burn depth is an important problem for surgeons to remedy severe skin burns. The burn can be simplified as a two-layer media model: a static layer and a dynamic layer. In this paper, the relative fluctuation of backscattering light was used to distinguish the simulated burn depth. The experimental results show that the relative fluctuation of light intensity increases with the increasing of simulated burn depth. The depth less than 0.1mm can be resolved in the present experiment. This new method may be very useful for burn diagnosis in clinics.
