Abstract

We recently reported on a new swept source polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography system and its application to skin imaging [Biomed. Opt. Express 3, 2987 (2012)]. In some of the tomographic images, two skin layers were labeled wrongly (interchanged). We present figures with corrected labeling.

We recently reported on a new swept source polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography system and its application to skin imaging [1]. In three of the tomographic images of that paper (Figs. 4, 5, and 6) two skin layers were wrongly labeled: epidermis (E) and dermis (D) were interchanged. We replace these figures by the correctly labeled figures, Fig. 1 , Fig. 2 , and Fig. 3 , respectively. The text sections of the paper are not affected by that error.

(a)–(d) single frame images; (e)–(g) average of 15 frames. (a), (e) reflectivity (log scale); (b), (f) retardation (color scale: 0–90°); (c), (g) axis orientation (color scale: −90–+90°); (d) DOPU (color scale: 0–1), 2D DOPU window (12(x) x 6(z) pixels or 55 x 38 µm2); (h) photo of imaged area, line shows approximate B-scan position. Scale bar dimensions: 0.5 mm (x: geometrical distance; z: optical distance). SC, stratum corneum; ED, epidermis; D, dermis; CLS, “column” like structure.
