abstract

  • Confocal mosaicing rapidly detects basal cell carcinomas in 100mm2 large skin excisions. Acetowhitening (concentrations 1-10%, duration 0.5-5 minutes) of excisions enhances cancer-to-dermis contrast. These methods may potentially guide Mohs surgery in real-time without histology. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
