In this study we are investigating three infrared imaging techniques, thermography, multispectral imaging and Laser Doppler imaging (LDI) to assess parameters of vascularity in lesions of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) and response to therapy. Thermography, multispectral imaging and LDI were recorded over the lesion and compare to normal skin either adjacent to the lesion or on the contralateral side. The KS lesions generally had increased temperature, blood volume (as measured by multispectral imaging) and blood flux (as measured by LDI) as compare to normal skin. After the treatment with experimental antiKS drug, temperature, blood volume and blood flow of the lesion were significantly reduced from the baseline. These techniques hold promise to assess physiological parameter in KS lesion and their changes with therapy.
