    Morphological parametric mapping of 21 skin sites throughout the body using optical coherence tomography

    Background Changes in body posture cause changes in morphological properties at different skin sites. Although previous studies have reported the thickness of the skin, the details of the postures are not generally given. This paper presents the effect of a change in posture on parameters such as thickness and surface roughness in 21 load-bearing and non-load-bearing sites. Materials and methods A total of 12 volunteers (8 males and 4 females) were selected in an age group of 18–35 years and of Fitzpatrick skin type I-III. Images were captured using a clinically-approved VivoSight® optical coherence tomography system and analysed using ...
