    Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography as a tool for three-dimensional in vivo quantification of healthy epidermis: a pilot study

    Epidermal three-dimensional (3D) topography/quantification have not been completely characterized yet. The recently developed line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) provides real-time, high-resolution, in-vivo 3D imaging of the skin. This pilot study aimed at quantifying epidermal metrics [epidermal thicknesses, dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ) undulation and keratinocyte number/shape/size] using 3D LC-OCT. For each study participant (8 female, skin-type-II, younger/older volunteers), seven body sites were imaged with LC-OCT. Epidermal metrics were calculated by segmentations and measurements assisted by artificial intelligence (AI) when appropriate. Thicknesses of epidermis/SC, DEJ undulation and keratinocyte nuclei volume varied across body sites. Evidence of keratinocyte ...
