    Optical Coherence Tomography in the Evaluation of the Scalp and Hair: Common Features and Clinical Utility

    Background and Objective Early diagnosis and treatment of hair loss disorders is vital in providing patients with improved psychological outcomes. Non‐invasive imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT) may be useful in characterizing and managing alopecia. Despite expanding clinical applications of OCT in dermatology, guidelines demonstrating in vivo features of normal and alopecic scalp images remain scant. This pilot study aims to provide an atlas of OCT findings of healthy and alopecia subjects, explore diagnostic quantitative endpoints of alopecia, and compare epidermal thickness and follicular density between scalp regions. Study Design/Materials and Methods A total of 32 patients (19 ...
