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

      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 ...

    2. The effect of melanin on in vivo optical coherence tomography of the skin in a multiethnic cohort

      The effect of melanin on in vivo optical coherence tomography of the skin in a multiethnic cohort

      Background Noninvasive real‐time assessment of living tissue is quickly becoming invaluable for bolstering histologic and dermatoscopic measures of cutaneous conditions. While many skin researchers have explored the utility of noninvasive imaging in inflammatory and malignant skin conditions, there is yet to be a definitive and direct assessment of the effects of melanin on the quality of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and its accuracy in multiethnic patient populations. We conducted a study to evaluate the effects of melanin on the quality of in vivo OCT imaging. Methods Volunteers of all Fitzpatrick skin types were imaged once in five skin ...
