|Since June 2015, Somerset CCG has been using KSYOS TeleDermatoScopy. In total, 9 practices have started with this service, on top of the regular KSYOS TeleDermatology service.
TeleDermatoscopy can be an important additional resource in the early detection of skin malignancies and reassuring the patient. It is particularly suitable for assessing solitary skin lesions using a combination of clinical and dermatoscopic photographs of the skin, medical history and additional information. The dermatoscopic photographs are taken using a digital dermatoscope made available free of charge when using the TeleDermatosocpy service.
