BACKGROUND Early and accurate diagnosis of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and actinic keratosis (AK) is fundamental to reduce their morbidity and to select the correct treatment. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new imaging device that can characterize healthy skin and basal cell carcinoma, but no large studies are available on keratinocyte cell tumours. OBJECTIVES To identify and describe LC-OCT criteria associated with SCC and AK and to compare LC-OCT fin...

BACKGROUND Early diagnosis and subtype classification of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) are crucial to reduce morbidity and optimize treatment. Good accuracy in differentiating BCC from clinical imitators has been achieved with existing diagnostic strategies but lower performance in discriminating BCC subtypes. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new technology able to combine the technical advantages of reflectance confocal microscopy and OCT. OBJECTIVES To identify and d...

Autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBDs) still represent a considerable a source of morbidity and mortality: early identification of a specific AIBD is often difficult due to overlapping clinical and/or laboratory features and time-consuming invasive laboratory tests. We aimed to investigate the potential role of a new imaging technology, line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT), in the non-invasive diagnosis of AIBDs. LC-OCT was performed at lesional, perilesional and contralateral ...

Introduction Les differentes structures de la peau peuvent etre maintenant etudiees in vivo en fonction de la topographie grâce a la tomographie confocale a coherence optique en ligne (LC-OCT, DAMAE Medical®, Paris, France). Cette nouvelle technologie optique d’imagerie cutanee non-invasive innovante permet la visualisation in vivo en temps reel de la peau en coupe verticale, similaire a l’histologie, de haute resolution a un niveau cellulaire (resolution spatiale isotrope ∼1 μm et profondeur de...

Introduction Le diagnostic precoce et la classification par sous-type du carcinome basocellulaire (CBC) sont essentiels pour reduire la morbidite et optimiser le traitement. Les strategies actuelles de diagnostic (dermatoscopie et microscopie confocale) ont permis d’obtenir une bonne precision dans la differenciation du CBC des imitateurs cliniques, mais elles sont moins performantes dans la discrimination des sous-types de CBC. La tomographie confocale a coherence optique en ligne (LC-OCT, DAMA...

Introduction La jonction dermo-epidermique (JDE) n’est pas similaire sur l’ensemble des differentes parties du corps a l’instar des autres constituant de la peau, du fait d’une specialisation liee a la topographie et a la fonctionnalite attenante. La JDE a ete evaluee initialement ex vivo au moyen des coupes histologiques, puis in vivo en microscopie confocale. Dans les 2 cas il s’agissait d’imagerie 2 D alors que la JDE est une structure complexe tridimensionnelle. Or la nature de la JDE n’est ...

BACKGROUND Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a non-invasive optical technique recently developed for skin examination in vivo. It provides real-time, high-resolution vertical images with an isotropic resolution of ~1 µm and a penetration depth of ~500 µm. OBJECTIVES Study goals were to qualitatively/quantitatively characterize healthy skin at different body sites using LC-OCT. METHODS The skin of young healthy volunteers was imaged with a handheld LC-OCT imaging device...
