Application and Diagnostic Tips
Skin cancer often isn’t all that easy to distinguish from benign lesions. But when a dermatoscope is used, this significantly increases the detection of malignant lesions compared to examinations performed with the naked eye. This has been proven in numerous studies.
With a good dermatoscope and the necessary expertise, practitioners find a routine and gain increasing confidence in diagnosing skin cancer through practice. Here, you will find practical knowledge on the likes of contact dermatoscopy, the influence that polarised light has on diagnosis or using a small contact plate for examining hard-to-reach areas of skin.
In addition to using dermatoscopes to diagnose skin cancer, practitioners also make use of them in daily practice to examine typical skin diseases like atopic eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, Grover’s disease or lichen ruber planus.
Digital documentation of dermatoscopic images is also becoming increasingly important with respect to making a diagnosis, since this data can supplement the progression. This is precisely where HEINE’s solution comes into play.
