U.S. FDA clears confocal microscopy device for dermatological use

The microscopy tool allows dermatologists to noninvasively visualize cellular structures within the skin.

Caliber Imaging & Diagnostics (Caliber I.D.; Boston, MA) has received U.S. FDA clearance for modifications to its Vivascope reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) device. The RCM tool allows dermatologists to noninvasively visualize cellular structures within the skin.
