German societies publish guidelines for microscopy

Article

Germany’s Association of Scientific Medical Societies has published a guideline on the use of confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) for dermatological applications.

Rochester, N.Y. - Germany’s Association of Scientific Medical Societies has published a guideline on the use of confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) for dermatological applications.

Published under the auspices of the German Dermatological Society, the “Confocal Laser Microscopy in Dermatology” guideline provides users with uniform recommendations for the use of this technology, according to Rochester-based Lucid. Included are details about CLSM operating principles, explanations of examination and diagnostic techniques, evidence-based findings in the most important in vivo and ex vivo applications, and information about Lucid VivaScope devices.

Business Wire quotes co-author Julia Welzel, M.D., a dermatology specialist at Augsburg Hospital in Germany, as saying, “The publication of the S1 guideline is an important milestone for confocal laser scanning microscopy. The recommendations represent a significant simplification for all users and make an important contribution to the standardization of diagnostics with the VivaScope devices.”
