Wound care technology is rapidly advancing, yet the treatment of wounds remains as much art as science. Much of the data currently collected on healing wounds is qualitative-varying by assessor and not easily tracked over time. The purpose of this research project is to evaluate several methods for quantitative wound assessment-wound volume, wound area, and wound coloration. By comparing various assessment parameters for the same patient population, conclusions can be drawn on which information is most useful to the clinical community and which information can be collected in a reasonable amount of time in the busy environment of the health care clinic
