    Characterizing the microcirculation of atopic dermatitis using angiographic optical coherence tomography

    Background and Aim: With inflammatory skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis (AD), epidermal thickness is mediated by both pathological hyperplasia and atrophy such as that resulting from corticosteroid treatment. Such changes are likely to influence the depth and shape of the underlying microcirculation. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides a non-invasive view into the tissue, however structural measures of epidermal thickness are made challenging due to the lack of a delineated dermal-epidermal junction in AD patients. Instead, angiographic extensions to OCT may allow for direct measurement of vascular depth, potentially presenting a more robust method of estimating the degree of epidermal ...
