BACKGROUND Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive morphological method for investigating human skin. It allows high-resolution in vivo imaging of inflammatory skin diseases and tumours. Because it is a newly developed method, systematic studies on standardization and on evaluation of factors influencing the representation of the skin have not yet been performed. OBJECTIVES In this study, normal human skin was treated with various external stimuli which induce changes of function… CONTINUE READING
