    Toward clinical elastography of dermal tissues: A medical device to probe skin’s elasticity through suction, with subsurface imaging via optical coherence tomography

    ABSTRACT The mechanical behavior of dermal tissues is unarguably recognized for its diagnostic ability and in the last decades received a steadily increasing interest in dermatology practices. Among the various methods to investigate the mechanics of skin in clinical environments, suction-based ones are especially noteworthy, thanks to their qualities of minimal invasiveness and relative simplicity of setups and data analysis. In such experiments, structural visualization of the sample is highly desirable, both in its own right and because it enables elastography. The latter is a technique that combines the knowledge of an applied mechanical stimulus and the visualization of the ...
