Diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions by epiluminescence microscopy

Epiluminescence is an innovative non-invasive in vivo diagnostic method for the study of pigmented melanocytic lesions (nevi).
The epiluminescence allows the observation of the internal structures that characterize the lesion: it uses the incident rays of a light source connected to a microscope or a camera to illuminate and visualize the internal structures of a neoformation
cutaneous, located under the epidermal surface up to the border between the superficial layer of the skin (the epidermis) and the dermis.
