Digital Dermoscopy – New Diagnostics Method of Analysis on Skin Melanoma Changes

Faruk Alendar, Hana Helppikangas, Temeida Alenda.


Regardless of method used, dermoscopy improves diagnostic procedures for the pigmentation skin changes, but only for the experienced examiners. That is why the adequate training is of outmost importance. Dermoscopy is excellent method for detecting melanomas at the earliest stage. This technique is not used to monitor nerves, but to detect melanomas at early stage. Follow-up is not an indication for one suspicious lesion. That kind of lesions should be removed. In case of patient with many typical lesions, excision of this entire lesion is not feasible. Instead of that, we use follow-up with clinical imaging, as well as digital dermoscope imaging, which once again depend on patient’s priority, as well as doctors estimate and patient consent.

Key words: dermoscopy method, melanomas.
