SKIN CANCER IMAGING (BCC, SCC, MELANOMA)

The current gold standard for clinical diagnosis of melanoma is excisional biopsy and histopathologic analysis. Biopsies are invasive and result in pain, anxiety, scarring, and disfigurement of patients, which can add additional burden to the health care system. Among several imaging techniques developed to enhance skin cancer diagnosis, optical coherence tomography (OCT), with its high-resolution and intermediate penetration depth, can potentially provide required diagnostic information noninvasively.
