Paper Abstract

To follow the development of pigment disorders like vitiligo over time, a newly developed full spectral modified ‘UV camera’ was introduced to enhance the image quality of vitiligo lesions in comparison to conventional images and surface area drawings. The quality of 31 images of lesions was assessed as good for 100% for the UV camera and 26% for the conventional camera by experts. The intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) of the lesion size between the imaging techniques were > 0.98. The UV camera provides high contrast images and enables the assessment of vitiligo lesions and accurate quantification of the surface area.
