A high frequency, high resolution dynamic ultrasonic skin-scanner is described. The skin-scanner is shown to give a cross-sectional image of the skin and provides an accurate, simple and non-invasive method for measuring full-thickness human skin. In addition to the skin thickness it is demonstrated that the underlying subcutaneous fat and muscles can also be non-invasively explored with the possibility of identifying a variety of skin and underlying tissue lesions.
