Summary This book provides a complete overview on the latest available technologies in dermatology, while discussing future trends of this ever-growing field. This handy guide provides clinicians and researchers with a clear understanding of the advantages and challenges of laser and imaging technologies in skin medicine today. It also includes a section on imaging techniques for the evaluation of skin tumors, with chapters devoted to dermoscopy, in vivo and ex vivo reflectance confocal microscopy, high frequency ultrasound, optical coherence tomography, and a closing part on latest approaches to wound management. Completed by over 200 clinical images, Current Technology in Practical Dermatology: Non-Invasive Imaging, Lasers and Ulcer Management is both a valuable tool for the inpatient dermatologist and for physicians, residents, and medical students in the field
