Rosen, B-G, Blunt, Liam and Thomas, T.R. (2005) On in-vivo skin topography metrology and replication techniques. Journal of Physics: conference series, 13. pp. 325-329. ISSN 1742-6596Metadata only available from this repository.
Human skin metrology is an area of growing interest for many disciplines both in research and for commercial purposes. Changes in the skin topography are an early stage diagnosis tool not only for diseases but also give indication of the response to medical and cosmetic treatment. This paper focuses on the evaluation of in vivo and in vitro methodologies for accurate measurements of skin and outlines the quantitative characterisation of the skin topography. The study shows the applicability of in-vivo skin topography characterisation and also the advantages and limitations compared to conventional replication techniques. Finally, aspects of stripe projection methodology and 3D characterisation are discussed as a background to the proposed methodology in this paper.
