The technique of semi-log plot whereby an exponential function becomes a straight line has been implemented on HD-OCT signals coming from four successive skin layers (epidermis, upper papillary dermis, deeper papillary dermis and superficial reticular dermis).

High negative predictive values could be found for these optical properties (96.7, 89.3 and 96.3 {\%}, respectively) compared to morphologic assessment alone (89.9 {\%}), reducing the risk of mistreating a malignant lesion to a more acceptable level (3.3 {\%} instead of 11.1 {\%}).
