    MULTIMODAL OPTOSPECTRAL INVESTIGATION  OF MELANOCYTIC SKIN LESIONS: A CORRELATION  STUDY USING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY  AND DERMOSCOPY

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is one of the best options, in terms of skin penetration depth and resolution, for skin lesion diagnosis. This study reports on the use of OCT for the in vivo imaging analysis of 67 melanocytic skin lesions in 34 patients. The OCT results have been compared with the dermoscopy – the standard non-invasive, visible-light-based skin imaging technique. The variations of the OCT imaging correlate with the dermoscopic pattern and presence of dermoscopic structures, like globules, blotches and regression areas. Our study shows that OCT is a promising non-invasive imaging technique for the diagnosis of skin lesions and ...
