Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal laser microscopy (CLSM) are established non-invasive methods in clinical dermatological routine diagnosis. Whereas CLSM is especially useful to distinguish between nevi and melanoma, OCT is suitable for the diagnosis and differentiation of non-melanoma skin cancer. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new innovative device, which has better cellular resolution than OCT and a higher penetration depth than CLSM. Similar to CLSM, LC-OCT also allows 3D images in real time to be taken. Therefore LC-OCT is very useful for the examination of skin lesions of all kinds, since it unites the features of CLSM and OCT.

Abstract

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal laser microscopy (CLSM) are established non-invasive methods in clinical dermatological routine diagnosis. Whereas CLSM is especially useful to distinguish between nevi and melanoma, OCT is suitable for the diagnosis and differentiation of non-melanoma skin cancer. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new innovative device, which has better cellular resolution than OCT and a higher penetration depth than CLSM. Similar to CLSM, LC-OCT also allows 3D images in real time to be taken. Therefore LC-OCT is very useful for the examination of skin lesions of all kinds, since it unites the features of CLSM and OCT.
