Abstract

The technology of Orthogonal Polarization Spectral Imaging (OPSI), patented in the United States in 1999, has been heralded as an alternative to conventional intravital microscopy for several reasons, including ease of application and ability to perform continued observations. In the following examples, OPSI was applied to reconstructive plastic surgery.Two experimental and one clinical model are presented. Currently, the image quality does not allow a qualitative analysis of the microvasculature.The data analysis of images remains inconclusive. However, a technically modified version with improved image resolution and software could become a valuable experimental as well as clinical tool in the field of reconstructive plastic surgery in the future.
