How can light technology be used to improve photographs of bruising?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Study Reference #: 00070742
Project LITE in the Department of Psychiatry, in collaboration with the Institute
of Optics Laboratory, has the goal to reduce differences in the quality of bruising
documentation regardless of skin color.
We are looking for people with medium and dark skin tones to test how different light
sources affect photographing bruises. You must be 18 years or older, be a person of
color and have experienced an injury with pain in the past seven days.
The initial appointment will take about 45 mins and you will take a 5-10 minute baseline
survey that will gather information on your age, race, ethnicity, and other demographics.
The survey will also ask about your level of pain and if it disrupts any aspects of
your life. Pictures of your injury will be taken using three different lights and
you will receive copies of the photographs.
You will need to return in 7 days for a 25 min follow up.
You will receive a $25 Wegmans gift card at both the initial and follow-up appointments.
