Abstract: 【Abstract】 Currently, the evaluation of keloids is mostly based on clinical observations and many clinical evaluation scales, and there is still a lack of a "gold standard" to objectively evaluate keloids. Imaging examinations are of great value to the diagnosis, differential diagnosis and efficacy evaluation of keloids. This review summarizes the research progress in the application of imaging techniques in keloids, thereby helping clinicians choose the appropriate equipment.
