Lesions may be monitored and documented with the handheld scanner attached to a smartphone.
We previously used a Visiomed mole scanner attached to a PC, but are increasingly recording lesions onto the cloudbased electronic health record.
Please note that South East Skin Clinic does not currently offer total body photography.
Total body photography describes the process for of recording all moles in a series of photos (typically 2o t0 25 photos).
Whole-body dermoscopy describes the process of recording each mole as both an ‘overview’ and a dermoscopic digital image. Each mole is compared over subsequent visits.
Total body photography with or without whole-body dermoscopy may be beneficial for patients with Familial atypical multiple mole melanoma syndrome (FAMMM syndrome) .
