Advantages of dermatoscopy
Digital dermatoscopy is a non–invasive diagnostic procedure involving the use of a manual-type epiluminescent microscope with multiple magnification. Its key positive points:
- no contraindications
- atraumatic and painless;
- high visualization accuracy;
- maximum clear color rendering, in-depth analysis of the structure;
- instant result;
- the possibility of detecting a malignant neoplasm of the skin at the earliest, preclinical or I, completely curable stage of cancer.
Unlike traditional, automated dermatoscopy with digital technology allows you to save the results on any electronic media, and monitor the patient’s condition in dynamics.
Indications for dermatoscopy
Differential diagnosis using a dermatoscope is carried out in the following situations:
- loss of outlined contours, change in color or size of a mole, nevus;
- inflammation, tingling, itching, bleeding, peeling and other unpleasant sensations in the area of skin formation;
- accidental tearing or permanent traumatization of a healthy mole, due to pressure or friction
- pigmented spots and other manifestations of skin dyschromia;
- vascular growths
- the appearance of new nevi, warts, papillomas, formations of unclear origin
Patients who have a large number of moles on the body or a malignant skin disease has been diagnosed in the family, a comprehensive examination is recommended, including digital dermatoscopy and mapping of the skin of all parts of the body. In addition, the procedure may be recommended before the planned removal of skin neoplasms.
How to do dermatoscopy: procedure procedure
Integrated dermatoscopic examination of skin neoplasms does not require special training. Previously, it is allowed to use any usual care products. Initially, a thermogel is applied to the target area of the skin, which eliminates all irregularities and provides the most accurate examination. Next, an electronic dermatoscope is guided to the neoplasm (without direct contact). The device repeatedly enlarges the image, which is processed by the computer and displayed on the monitor screen. In conclusion, gel residues are removed from the skin, after which a printout of the results is issued and issued. On average, it takes several minutes to study one object. The total duration of the procedure does not exceed half an hour.
