New camera 'shows blood flow'

A Swiss company has developed a camera which shows how blood is circulating through the skin in real-time.

The camera is designed to help assess the extent and severity of burns and to determine whether skin grafts are necessary.

The machine uses what is called "laser Doppler imaging" and has been developed by Aimago, a start-up company based at the Swiss university, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne.

Here, Michael Friedrich of Aimago explains how the EasyLDI works.
