Why TeleDermatoScopy?

TeleDermatoscopie

TeleDermatoScopy can be an important additional resource in the early detection of skin malignancies and reassuring the patient.

In cooperation with the Academic Medical Centre (AMC) a pilot was conducted to study the diagnostic reliability of TeleDermatoScopy. The conclusions of this study were:

  • In all cases of skin cancer, the dermatologist proposed the right treatment plan.
  • The quality of the photos had an effect on the diagnostic reliability and accuracy.

 

 

The following also emerged after 1,200 TeleDermatoScopy Consults:

  • Quick diagnosis for the patient (8.7 hours on average)
  • 66% of referrals prevented after selection by the general practitioner
  • Increase in the expertise and pleasure taken in their work by the general practitioner and dermatologist
  • Triage (determination of referral period, specialist, outpatient)

How does TeleDermatoScopy work?

Clinical and dermatoscopic photographs of the skin, medical histories and additional information are sent to the dermatologist for advice via a secure internet connection.

You always attach at least 1 clinical overview photo (body part), 1 clinical detail photo (macro) and 1 dermatoscopic photo (lesion entirely in the picture) to a TeleDermatoScopy Consult:
