 Project objective

Plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures provide a means of reconstructing tissues following damage due to cancer, trauma, burns and infections. An important example is flap surgery which involves transferring skin and the underlying tissues from one part of the body to another; for example, in the DIEP flap breast reconstruction procedure, skin and tissue from the abdomen is removed and implanted in the breast. For a successful repair, it is essential that the transplanted tissue develops an adequate blood supply. Failure to do so results in tissue death (necrosis) which can lead to complications such as infection, delayed wound healing and disfigurement due to scarring with attendant psychological trauma. This proposal seeks to address this by developing and constructing a prototype clinical imaging instrument based on a novel photoacoustic technology which can provide highly detailed three-dimensional maps of blood vessels. This technology offers the prospect of reducing the number of complications and the need for repeat procedures with consequent benefits in terms of reduced patient trauma and lower healthcare provider costs.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "PHOTOPARS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
