||Use of a Photo Thermal Camera and Infrared Thermometer to Grade the Severity of Oral Mucositis in Subjects undergoing Antineoplastic Chemotherapy
||Elias Anaissie, MD
||To investigate the feasibility of using photo thermal camera and infrared (IR) thermometer to grade the severity of oral mucositis in patients with multiple myeloma undergoing chemotherapy.
||Patients who have developed Oral Mucositis (an inflammation of the lining in your mouth) due to receiving chemotherapy as part of their preparation for a stem cell transplant, patients are being invited to participate in a research study to evaluate the feasibility of thermal imaging for assessment of oral mucositis.
||The patients with mucositis will be seen after their mucositis is resolved. We will obtain repeat photo thermal camera images, IR thermometer readings, self-assessment questionnaire, digital photography of the oral cavity and WHO mucositis scores during this visit and compare these data with initial data.
