This paper describes a study of pilonidal excision wounds and abdominal wounds in which measurements of the wounds' volume and area were compared to their circumferences. A structured light method is proposed for the measurement of the three-dimensional circumference of acute cavity wounds, as circumference.is not easily measured by standard methods owing to the complex shape of some wounds.
