Paper Abstract

With the current developments in optics, including laser optics, there should be more progress on the development of instrumentation for dermatological diagnostics, even clinical diagnostics. This report introduces new microscopy, much still under development, and research. A frank appeal for this program is made for multi-discipline help from optical physicists, biophysicists, biomedical engineers, even laser biomedical engineers, investigative dermatologists, and pathologists. If one is allowed to say, the most current advanced clinical diagnostic microscope is the polarizing microscope under the stimulus of Rox Anderson, Lynn Drake, Steven Jacques, and Peter Dorogi. The other microscopes for clinical dermatological research to be developed include the confocal scanning microscopy with the emphasis for living tissue, the ultrasonic biomedical microscope (UBM) for dermatology, and the holographic microscope, related to our studies on the biomedical aspects of optical phase conjugation. All these are introduced briefly for our studies and for definite pleas to help us.
