In vivo microcirculation mapping of human skin keloid by 40-MHz ultrafast ultrasound imaging

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Keloids are benign dermal disease that are characterized by the collagen deposition and growth beyond the boundaries of the original wound position. Many studies on keloids have showed that the density of blood vessel within keloids is higher than normal skin, which is a determinant of the physiological conditions of the tissue and also important for understanding the pathogenesis and radiotherapy response to keloids. However, the techniques for extracting the microcirculation of keloids are still lacking, which prompts us to develop a 40 MHz ultrafast ultra-high frequency ultrasound imaging to visualize the microcirculation within keloids.
