    Analysis of sweating by optical coherence tomography in patients with palmoplantar hyperhidrosis

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution tomographic imaging technique that uses optical interference. OCT has enabled the non-invasive three-dimensional analysis of individual acrosyringia in the stratum corneum in human skin. However, no report on the measurement of sweating by OCT using clinical data from humans has been published to date. Twenty patients with hyperhidrosis and twenty healthy subjects were included in this study. Imaging of acrosyringia in the stratum corneum using OCT and measurement of the sweat rate using the ventilated capsule method were performed simultaneously. The hand grip exercise of the right hand was used as a load ...
