    Optical coherence tomography for fast bedside imaging, assessment and monitoring of autoimmune inflammatory skin diseases?

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non‐invasive, high‐resolution imaging technique with a growing impact in dermatology. The principle of OCT is comparable to that of sonography, except that it uses infrared laser light instead of ultrasound waves. It has been clinically demonstrated that OCT is suitable for discriminating between different types of non‐melanoma skin cancer at an early stage of disease. Optical coherence tomography generates two‐ or three‐dimensional images of up to 2 mm penetration depth, a field of view of 6 mm × 6 mm, and an acquisition time of seconds. The resolution capability of OCT ...
