Dermoscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that facilitates the visualization of surface and subsurface structures of the skin. It has been proven to be an essential tool in the diagnosis of both malignant and benign cutaneous lesions. In this article, we review some of the most recent and noteworthy advances in dermoscopy. In addition, we discuss Reflectance Confocal Microscopy (RCM) and Optical Coherence Topography (OCT), two non-invasive imaging devices that may be used alongside dermoscopy to improve diagnostic accuracy


KEY WORDS: Dermoscopy - Optical coherence tomography - Confocal microscopy
