VeinViewer Projects Vasculature on the Skin Surface

The VeinViewer by Luminetx is a technology to locate subcutaneous vasculature and project real-time images of their location onto the surface of the skin, allowing the physician to clearly see accessible vasculature (or lack thereof). An adjustable head can be positioned over almost any part of the patient's anatomy, leaving the hands of the clinician free for clinical intervention.
The VeinViewer utilizes a near-infrared light source to differentiate red blood cells from surrounding tissues. These near-infrared light photons are received by a detector located in the video camera; a computer digitizes these photons, produces an image and projects the image onto the patient's skin to show the location of the vascular structures. With VeinViewer, medical professionals may quickly and conveniently map a patient's vasculature, regardless of age, body type or skin tone.
