Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

The innovative Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scanner answers the demands in the emerging markets of skin care products and aesthetic medicine. OCT has embedded noninvasive high-level optical imaging technology for real-time tomographic images of skin tissues. It addresses problems with conventional skin analyzers used in aesthetic clinics, which cannot provide crucial information such as the level of creasing at the dermal-epidermal junction, density of collagen, and patterning of blood vessels. The prototype of ITRI’s first generation hand-held OCT scanner features reduced size and weight so that it can be operated one-handedly. It provides useful skin condition information regarding thickness distribution of epidermis and dermis layers, collagen presence and distribution, status of hair follicles, and more. This allows for quick assessments of the effectiveness of skin care products or treatments.
