Paper Abstract

Reflectance confocal microscopy provides real time, cellular resolution images of in-vivo and ex-vivo tissues and been cleared by the FDA and international regulatory agencies for medical applications. Clinical applications of reflectance confocal microscopy are being tested in single- and multi-center clinical trials. In this talk I will review the design challenges of sub-surface imaging with confocal microscopy and techniques to compare instrument performance between different sites.
