    Semi-automated localization of dermal epidermal junction in optical coherence tomography images of skin

    Identifying the location of the dermal epidermal junction (DEJ) in skin images is essential in several clinical applications of dermatology such as epidermal thickness determination in healthy versus unhealthy skins, such as basal cell carcinoma. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) facilitates the visual detection of DEJ in vivo . However, due to the granular texture of speckle and a low contrast between dermis and epidermis, a skin border detection method is required for DEJ localization. Current DEJ algorithms work well for skins with a visible differentiable epidermal layer but not for the skins of different body sites. In this paper, we present ...
