Paper Abstract

High resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become a new diagnostic tool for the evaluation of structural changes of the skin. The instrumental resolution (3 μm lateral and 5 μm axial) was determined by the point spread function of 1nm particles. OCT now offers diagnosis of inflammation processes in deeper skin layers, not detectable by conventional 20MHz ultrasound applications. Therefore, therapy monitoring of patients will become possible.
