Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive imaging tool that has the potential to revolutionize dermatology. Extensive research in this area in conjunction with the recent assignment of reimbursement codes has made the clinical use of this technology a practical reality. Though there is awareness and use of this technology at large academic centers, a knowledge gap still remains in interpreting RCM images among the dermatology community. We review the key RCM features of melanocytic and nonmelanocytic lesions to provide guidance in distinguishing benign entities from malignant dermatologic neoplasms.
