Abstract:
The in vivo assessment and visualization of skin structures can be performed through the use of high resolution optical coherence tomography imaging, also known as HD-OCT. However, the manual assessment of such images can be exhaustive and time consuming. In this paper, we present an analysis system to automatically identify and quantify the skin characteristics such as the topography of the surface of the skin and thickness of the epidermis in HD-OCT images. Comparison of this system with manual clinical measurements demonstrated its potential for automatic objective skin analysis and diseases diagnosis. To our knowledge, this is the first report of an automated system to process and analyse HD-OCT skin images.
