1. Assessment of the effect of narrowband UVB and broadband UVB on mice skin using optical coherence tomography

    Ultraviolet B (UVB) has been used in dermatological phototherapy widely. Narrowband UVB (NB-UVB), with a peak at 311nm, is considered more effective than broadband UVB (BB-UVB). However, the safety of NB-UVB is controversial. Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a novel, non-invasive and depth-resolved imaging technology, is a useful tool for detection of the skin structure in vivo. This study assessed the effect of NB-UVB and BB-UVB on the skin using OCT for the first time. In this study, Balb/c mouse model was surveyed by an OCT system with 1310 nm central wavelength. The two UVB sources were applied on mice ...
