SEM Scanner Made Easy

It is well documented that early diagnosis and intervention may contribute to pressure ulcer prevention, which is less costly that treatment. This Made Easy provides an overview of the SEM Scanner, a diagnostic tool that allows the user to ‘visualise pathology’ below the skin before changes manifest at the surface, allowing preventative strategies to be put in place, thus avoiding extension of the pressure ulcer and associated issues.
