LUNA® FLUORESCENCE ANGIOGRAPHY

​The LUNA® system has become an invaluable tool that helps physicians at the wound care clinic diagnose and treat slow-healing wounds. LUNA allows for visual assessment of blood flow quality to extremities and chronic non-healing wounds. LUNA captures live images of a patient's blood flow as it moves toward the wound area, allowing for real-time diagnosis and providing critical information needed to determine a treatment plan. 

The result: Patients can be more efficiently directed into the appropriate care pathways to promote healing, which ultimately can also reduce the cost of care. LUNA procedures allow wound care specialists to assess and document baseline tissue perfusion on admission, define optimal care pathways based on the visual quality of blood flow, and validate and revise treatment strategies by assessing perfusion before and after therapies such as:

  • vascular intervention
  • hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
  • tissue debridement
  • negative pressure wound applications
  • skin substitutes. ​
