Cutaneous Ultrasound

The diagnosis of most skin diseases, both focal and diffuse, has been mainly relied upon physical examination findings. Studies show that ultrasonography is superior to clinical examination alone by providing valuable information in the detection and accurate measurement of many clinical and subclinical cutaneous lesions. The requirements for the non-invasive ultrasonic investigations of human skin from the dermatologist point of view were defined as it is expected to determine the size, contour, structure, and penetration depth of skin lesions. The procedure involving ultrasonography is a non-invasive method allowing “in vivo” and “in real time” histologic assessment of the cutaneous structure as well as its specific conditions. In the evaluation of cutaneous lesions, ultrasonography with colour Doppler is useful as a safe, non-invasive, economical, and repeatable diagnostic procedure that can reduce and replace invasive procedures like fine needle aspirations and biopsies.
