    In vivo dual-mode full-field optical coherence tomography for differentiation of types of melanocytic nevi

    Significance: Melanocytic nevi represent the most common dermal melanocytic lesions in humans. Nevus is typically diagnosed clinically with the naked eye or with dermoscopy. However, it is essential to identify the type of nevus by invasive biopsy for histopathological examination. The use of noninvasive imaging tools can be used to evaluate the types of nevi to reduce unnecessary excisions of benign entities. Aim: To evaluate the feasibility of using en face and cross-sectional full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT) in differentiation of melanocytic nevi that can facilitate the reduction of unnecessary excisions of benign entities. Approach: Dual-mode Mirau-type FF-OCT for cross-sectional ...
