    Dynamic optical coherence tomography shows alterations of blood vessels characteristic for malignant melanoma

    Background Dynamic optical coherence tomography (D‐OCT) allows in vivo visualization of blood vessels in the skin and in malignant tumors. Vessel patterns in malignant melanoma may be associated with tumor stage. Objective The aim of this study was to describe blood vessel patterns in melanomas and to correlate them with stage. Methods 159 malignant melanomas were assessed in a multicenter study. Every tumor was imaged using D‐OCT prior to surgery and histologic evaluation. The tumor data like thickness and ulceration as well as the staging at primary diagnosis and a follow‐up of at least 40 months resulted ...
