Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Use optical coherence tomography in clinical practice
  • Recognize some basic guidelines in live skin imaging

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging device that uses a low intensity laser light to image up to  2mm  beneath  the  skin’s  surface. This  allows  the  clinician to get real-time video-rate images of the subsurface structures of the integumentary system without any pre-treatment or gels. OCT has been shown to be a useful diagnostic and monitoring tool. This session will highlight the practical utility of a rapidly effective imaging device in both areas of research as well as a cosmetic and general dermatology practice.
