Link Skin Morphology and Vasculature with Diseases using Optical Imaging

Project description

Novel imaging method for skin diseases

The diagnosis of skin and subcutaneous diseases takes place through dermoscopy and biopsy, which, however, are either not sensitive enough or very invasive and time-consuming. To address this problem, the EU-funded SkinOptima project proposes to develop a multi-modal optical method for imaging cutaneous blood vessels in a non-invasive manner. The approach is based on the fact that skin and subcutaneous diseases alter the cutaneous vasculature. Using this approach, scientists will be able to quantitatively analyse the vascular parameters of major skin diseases such as dermatitis and basal cell carcinoma and establish a link with their unique vascular patterns.
