Mohs Micrographic Surgery (MMS) is resource intensive and generates a significant amount of anxiety for the patient.
Surgeon, MMS staff and the patient can benefit from the imaging capabilities of VivoSight to better evaluate the lesion to be treated.
Lesion Imaging Prior to Mohs Surgery
- Draw perimeter around clinical lesion including usual margin
- Observe shadow of margin marker in OCT image
- Assess whether (BCC) lesion is inside or outside margin border and redraw margin accordingly if needed. Images courtesy of Welzel
