Not bigger…but better, sharper, and faster

After working with previous models of confocal microscopy machines, the newest model of the Vivascope 1500® makes us realize that cutaneous reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is feasible in any clinical setting. In using the previous device, patient visits could last anywhere from 30-60 minutes per lesion. During these visits we would take one stack and […]

Why Reflectance Confocal Microscopy?

“I have been doing pathology for last many years, and I still love it. I am interested in learning about non-invasive diagnostic imaging techniques of skin like confocal microscopy” said Dr. Maria Shevchuk, MD, FCAP, an Associate Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and Associate Attending Pathologist at New York […]

What is Reflectance Confocal Microscopy?

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a non-invasive and painless imaging technique that enables in vivo visualization of cellular details of skin. The resolution of this innovative technique is almost comparable to traditional histology. Unlike biopsy RCM enables the investigation of entire lesion. How Does RCM Work? Reflectance confocal microscope is a FDA 510(k) Cleared Class […]
