Perspective on optical imaging for functional assessment in musculoskeletal extremity trauma surgery

A reliable assessment of tissue viability is critical to effectively treating patients who sustain traumatic extremity injury. Despite their relatively inert appearance, bone, tendons, and ligaments are, physiologically speaking, highly active. Bones, specifically, receive ∼10% of the entire cardiac output of blood volume.
