Non‐melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is rarely fatal but is now the most common malignancy occurring in white populations, accounting for 70% of the cost of managing skin cancer. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has the potential to improve diagnostic accuracy and help delineate pre‐surgical margins in NMSC. Its widespread clinical acceptance awaits the accumulation of evidence from studies of direct histological comparisons. 
Line‐field confocal optical coherence tomography of basal cell carcinoma: a descriptive study
TLDR
Line‐field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC‐OCT) is a new technology able to combine the technical advantages of reflectance confocal microscopy and OCT.

TLDR
To compare the diagnostic imaging ability of three different optical coherence tomography devices in non‐melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), a comparison of the ability of OCT devices to diagnose NMSC is presented.
#165e Optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis of skin cancer in adults
TLDR
To determine the diagnostic accuracy of OCT for the detection of cutaneous invasive melanoma and atypical intraepidermal melanocytic variants, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), or cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCC) in adults, a comprehensive search of databases from inception up to August 2016 is undertaken.
Optical coherence tomography for diagnosing skin cancer in adults.
TLDR
The diagnostic accuracy of Optical coherence tomography for the detection of cutaneous invasive melanoma and atypical intraepidermal melanocytic variants, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), or cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCC) in adults in adults is determined.

TLDR
The aim of this study was to explore the use of quantitative OCT measurements, density, and attenuation coefficient in BCC lesions as a way to improve the OCT evaluation of BCC.
Accuracy of optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis of superficial basal cell carcinoma: a prospective, consecutive, cohort study of 168 cases
TLDR
Potentially noninvasive imaging techniques, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), may be useful to diagnose and manage patients with sBCC and obviate the need for biopsy.
The sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography for the assisted diagnosis of nonpigmented basal cell carcinoma: an observational study
The diagnostic criteria for basal cell carcinoma (BCC) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been described previously, but the clinical value of these findings remains unknown.
Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography in Dermatology
TLDR
Dynamic OCT (D-OCT) based on speckle variance OCT is of special interest as it allows the in vivo evaluation of blood vessels and their distribution within specific lesions, providing additional functional information and consequently greater density of data.

TLDR
A large number of publications have suggested that optical coherence tomography has the potential for non‐invasive diagnosis of skin cancer, but individual diagnostic features do not appear sufficiently discriminatory.

TLDR
OCT is used as a diagnostic tool in ophthalmology for examination of a highly scattering tissue like the skin and early studies on the value of OCT for skin diagnosis gave promising results.
Anatomical and molecular imaging of skin cancer
TLDR
Over the last decade, various molecular imaging techniques (in particular single photon emission computed tomography and positron emission tomography) have been investigated for skin cancer imaging and the pathways or molecular targets that have been studied include glucose metabolism, integrin αvβ3, melanocortin-1 receptor, high molecular weight melanoma-associated antigen, and several other molecular markers.
