Laser speckle contrast analysis (LASCA) is a good tool to evaluate the variation in peripheral blood perfusion during long-term follow-up and is able to safely monitor digital ulcer evolution in scleroderma patients. It evaluates blood perfusion in different areas within the skin lesions and surrounding them during standard treatment.
