Summary Background  With the continued development of noninvasive therapies for basal cell carcinoma (BCC) such as photodynamic therapy and immune therapies, noninvasive diagnosis and monitoring become increasingly relevant. High‐definition optical coherence tomography (HD‐OCT) is a high‐resolution imaging tool, with micrometre resolution in both transversal and axial directions, enabling visualization of individual cells up to a depth of around 570 μm, and filling the imaging gap between… Expand

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. Expand
Optical coherence tomography of actinic keratoses and basal cell carcinomas – differentiation by quantification of signal intensity and layer thickness
TLDR
There is a lack of systematic studies that give standardized information on signal intensity and layer thickness of AKs and BCCs, so there is a need for more studies to be conducted on this topic. Expand
