    2. Optical Coherence Tomography in Dermatology

      Optical Coherence Tomography in Dermatology
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT), an emerging noninvasive imaging modality, recently received category III Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes from the American Medical Association, enabling tracking of its use in the medical community. In this article, we review OCT imaging and its variant systems, discussing its applications and limitations for clinical use. Future directions of OCT technology and goals for obtaining category I CPT codes and reimbursement also are discussed.

      Commentary on the Diagnostic Utility of Non-invasive Imaging Devices for Field Cancerization
      In this issue of Experimental Dermatology , Marneffe and collegues present a practical algorithmic guide to differentiating actinic keratosis (AK) from normal skin and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) using high-definition optical coherence tomography (HD-OCT), outlining steps and markers to guide both novice and more experienced skin cancer experts (1).

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography for Skin Cancer Screening

      Optical Coherence Tomography for Skin Cancer Screening
      Skin cancer is the most common malignancy worldwide. Non-Melanoma Skin Cancers (NMSC), including Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCC) are the most common, constituting around 80 percent of all skin cancers [1]. It is estimated that approximately 3.5 million new cases of NMSC occur every year in the United States, exceeding that of all other cancers combined [2-5]. In contrast, melanoma accounts for less than one ...

    5. The Use of Noninvasive Optical Coherence Tomography to Monitor the Treatment Progress of Vismodegib and Imiquimod 5% Cream in a Transplant Patient with Advanced Basal Cell Carcinoma of the Nose

      The Use of Noninvasive Optical Coherence Tomography to Monitor the Treatment Progress of Vismodegib and Imiquimod 5% Cream in a Transplant Patient with Advanced Basal Cell Carcinoma of the Nose
      Immunosuppressed transplant recipients have increased risk for the development of basal cell carcinoma skin cancers. While oral vismodegib therapy has been successful in treating locally advanced basal cell tumors, few studies document its use and efficacy in organ transplant patients. In this immunocompromised population, topical imiquimod 5% cream has been shown to be an effective and well-tolerated option for superficial and nodular basal cell carcinomas. To the authors' knowledge, no ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography for Skin Cancer
      Skin cancer is the most common malignancy worldwide, and non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) in particular, including basal cell carcinomas (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas, constitute around 80 percent of all skin cancers. It is estimated that approximately 3.5 million new cases of NMSC occur every year in the U.S., exceeding that of all other cancers combined. Despite the high prevalence of NMSC, they can be effectively treated and ...

    8. Defining Field Cancerization of the Skin Using Noninvasive Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging to Detect and Monitor Actinic Keratosis in Ingenol Mebutate 0.015%-Treated Patients

      Defining Field Cancerization of the Skin Using Noninvasive Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging to Detect and Monitor Actinic Keratosis in Ingenol Mebutate 0.015%-Treated Patients
      Objective: The objective of this study was to assess the ability of optical coherence tomography to detect clinical and subclinical actinic keratoses confirmed by histopathology. The efficacy of ingenol mebutate treatment of actinic keratosis was also evaluated using optical coherence tomography, and correlation of treatment efficacy with severity of local skin reactions was determined. Design: Single-arm, open-label, split-face study. Setting: Hospital outpatient clinic. Participants: Male subjects (N=30) with seven ...

      OCT Laser Device Allows Visualization of Skin Without Biopsy
      The annual incidence of skin cancer is more than breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer combined. Of the 7 most common skin cancers in the US melanoma is the only one whose incidence is increasing. The highest risk group for skin cancer are fair skin, adults with a history of sun exposure.

    1. An important component of OCT is the laser's ability to take live black and white pictures of deeper skin layers. By combining this technology with other lasers, I am discovering successful ways to both diagnose and treat skin cancer bloodlessly.
