Up-to-date non-invasive visualization technologies in dermatology

Abstract


The authors present a review of up-to-date non-invasive visualization methods used in diagnostics of diseases of skin
and its appendages. They describe physical principles forming the basis for non-invasive visualization methods such
as dermatoscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, optical video monitoring, optical topometry, optical coherent
tomography, ultrasound scanning, 3D-modeling. They also describe the potential of practical application of these diagnostics
methods at the current stage of their development. The authors have demonstrated that it is possible to reduce the clinicians
need in biopsy diagnostics due to the high information value of non-invasive visual diagnostics methods.
