Optical coherence tomography (OCT) for microstructural and morphological imaging of the skin refers to a noninvasive imaging technique using low–power infrared light to visualize minute details in form and structure of the skin up to 2 mm below the surface, without gels or other pretreatment; it is used to help diagnose skin cancers, fungal infections, and other skin diseases. This code applies to image acquisition, interpretation, and report for each additional lesion, so do not report these components separately.
