Dermoscopy is a diagnostic imaging tool enabling examination of the skin surface using epiluminescence and magnification. A dermoscope is an essential imaging device with a high-quality magnifying lens and a bright light system for clear visualisation of the surface and subsurface structures. The Casio Dermoscope offers a compact and ergonomic design with exceptional optics for quick, easy and detailed dermal observations.
Dermatology lends itself to the use of clinical photography and teledermatology. Periodic digital photographs of the skin surface allows for early detection of melanoma and other skin cancers such as squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Minute changes in colour and structure can only be detected with a detailed photographic record over time. Teledermatology is a proven method that accelerates the process of diagnosis and treatment of skin lesions and improves patient outcomes.
