Few belong to group 2. Thicker scales of groups from 3 to 5 are not found at all. This image analytical method is a valuable tool to assess xerosis vulgaris, or xerosis induced by soaps, irradiation, tape stripping, etc. The method has been successfully used on a variety of clinical studies, especially evaluating the efficacy of moisturizers. Disorders of keratinization with very thick scales are less suitable for this method of study. In black skin, scales adherent on the disc often appear dark because corneocytes contain undegraded melanosomes, limiting the usefulness of the method in this group.

OCT is very well suited for high-resolution imaging of the uppermost skin layers. In vivo MRI of skin is so far not yet established in dermatology, although studies have shown that HR-MRI of skin can be implemented with standard clinical tomographs and specially designed receive coils. However, MRI systems are usually not available and are too expensive for dermatological diagnostics, the acquisition time is on the order of several minutes, and the resolution is significantly worse than with HFUS and OCT.
