Although ultrasound has been used for many years for a variety of medical diagnostic purposes, only recently have systems been designed that allow for its application to skin. High-resolution ultrasound systems now permit accurate, quantitative, noninvasive assessment of skin and cutaneous diseases. This technique will assist in the management of both inflammatory and neoplastic processes. Scans of skin obtained with a prototype high- resolution ultrasound system are presented. The computer-assisted creation of three-dimensional images from sequential B-mode scans is described.
