Moles check up with dermoscope.

fullsizerender-4

Dermatoscopy (also known as dermoscopy or epiluminescence microscopy) is the examination of skin lesions with a dermatoscope. This traditionally consists of a magnifier (typically x10), a non-polarised light source, a transparent plate and a liquid medium between the instrument and the skin, and allows inspection of skin lesions unobstructed by skin surface reflections. Modern dermatoscopes dispense with the use of liquid medium and instead use polarised light to cancel out skin surface reflections. When the images or video clips are digitally captured or processed, the instrument can be referred to as a “digital epiluminescence dermatoscope”.

This instrument is useful to dermatologists in distinguishing benign from malignant (cancerous) lesions, especially in the diagnosis of melanoma.

Dermoscopy is a way to look beyond your skin surface. This is a non-invasive and widely use technique to examine patient’s mole. With new technology, you can take a follow up pictures of your moles during time and keep them for other opinion when you’re back to your country

Application of dermatoscopy (more informations at Wikipedia )

  1. The typical application of dermatoscopy is early detection of melanoma
  2. Digital dermatoscopy (videodermatoscopy) is used for monitoring skin lesions suspicious of melanoma. Digital dermatoscopy images are stored and compared to images obtained during the patient’s next visit. Suspicious changes in such a lesion are an indication for excision. Skin lesions, which appear unchanged over time are considered benign.
  3. Aid in the diagnosis of skin tumors – such as basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, cylindromas, dermatofibromas, angiomas, seborrheic keratosis and many other common skin tumors have classical dermatoscopic findings.
