Abstract: The present study investigated the reproducibility of measurements with the Dermascan C on post-burn scars. Intra- and inter-rater reproducibility and test-retest reliability with a one week time lapse were examined on 40 post-burn scars of 6 volunteering burn patients by means of intra-class- correlation coefficients (ICC) and standard error of measurements (SEM). Results showed good to excellent values for ICC in all the three conditions. On the basis of these results, we concluded that the instrument provides reliable information and can be used in comparative clinical trials that examine therapeutic strategies on healing scars.
