Confocal mosaicing of basal cell carcinomas in mohs micrographic surgical skin excisions
Health Knowledge, Attitudes, Practice
Patient Education as Topic
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.
