BACKGROUND Ex vivo confocal scanning laser microscopy offers rapid optical reflectance imaging of excised tissue without conventional frozen histopathology that can potentially expedite Mohs surgery. OBJECTIVE The objective was to determine the feasibility of using ex vivo confocal scanning laser microscopy during Mohs surgery for detecting residual basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. METHODS One-hundred fifteen Stage I Mohs surgery excisions (92 basal cell carcinoma, 23… CONTINUE READING
