    In vivo characterisation of healthy human skin with a novel, non‐invasive imaging technique: line‐field confocal optical coherence tomography

    Background Line‐field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC‐OCT) is a non‐invasive optical technique recently developed for skin examination in vivo . It provides real‐time, high‐resolution vertical images with an isotropic resolution of ~1 µm and a penetration depth of ~500 µm. Objectives Study goals were to qualitatively/quantitatively characterise healthy skin at different body sites using LC‐OCT. Methods The skin of young healthy volunteers was imaged with a handheld LC‐OCT imaging device. Seven body sites (back of the hand, forehead, cheek, nose, chest, forearm, and back) were investigated. An independent qualitative [cutaneous structures’ description; visibility ...
