In this review article, we explore the mechanisms of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and its applications in various skin diseases. OCT is a novel real-time imaging modality based on Michelson interferometry of infrared radiation and living tissues. This technique permits the high resolution of 2 and 3-dimensional cross-sectional microvasculature imaging of tissues and surveillance over time. The major purpose of this review article is to explore OCT imaging of skin tumors, oral tumors, tumor angiogenesis, and choroidal tumors with early phase detection.


KEY WORDS: Tomography, optical coherence - Dermatology - Blood vessels - Imaging, three-dimensional
