High frequency ultrasound is suitable for non-invasive evaluation of skin because it can obtain both morphological and biomechanical information. A specially developed acoustic microscope system with the central frequency of 100 MHz was developed. The system was capable of (1) conventional C-mode acoustic microscope imaging of thinly sliced tissue, (2) ultrasound impedance imaging of the surface of in vivo thick tissue and (3) 3D ultrasound imaging of inside of the in vivo tissue. In the present study, ultrasound impedance imaging and 3D ultrasound imaging of in vivo fingerprints were obtained. The impedance image showed pores of the sweat glands in the surface of fingerprint and 3D ultrasound imaging showed glands of the rear surface of fingerprint. Both findings were not visualized by normal optical imaging, thus the system can be applied to pathological diagnosis of skin lesions and assessment of aging of the skin in cosmetic point of view.
