    Optical coherence tomography imaging of bullous diseases

    Background  Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive optical imaging technique with a micrometer resolution that may potentially offer real-time bedside imaging of sufficient detail to allow for morphological discrimination between different types of bullae. Objective  To explore the potential of OCT in bullous skin disorders by looking at a set of patients with skin blisters of known origin and study the OCT images for possible hallmarks of the blistering level. Materials and methods  OCT provides cross-sectional, tomographic images of the skin. A consecutive series of patients were recruited and their lesions imaged by OCT: 3 patients with bullous pemphigoid ...
