    The use of optical coherence tomography for skin evaluation in healthy rats - A pilot study

    Background: Noninvasive diagnostic techniques allow for morphological and morphometric in vivo evaluation of the skin. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a method that allows visualization of dermal structures up to several 100 μm with a resolution of 3-7.5 μm. Objectives: The aim of the study was the morphological and morphometric assessment of rats' skin using SD-OCT. Animals: Fifteen male Wistar rats, aged 3 and 8 months, weighing 350-450 g. Materials and methods: The skin of the plantar metatarsal area of the right pelvic limb was assessed. The measurements were performed using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) scans and ...
