Fotofinder Digital Dermoscopy

cover_female60_aesthetic-qpr

The observation and management of moles has been revolutionised by the science of dermoscopy and more specificly in recent years by the development of machines that identify the moles more clearly (dermoscopy) and then digitalise the image to be shown on a computers and which can be stourd in a specific program. 

The marked leading technology for this in South Africa is the fotofinder digital dermoscopy computer.  In the skinmatters practice we have four such computers and an extensive database on our patients.  During a moles scan all significant moles can be photograph into the fotofinder computer and be stoured for further reference.  With future visits the new photographs can then be compared accurately with the previous one’s and changes identified.
