What are Dermatoscopic Diagnostics?
A dermatoscope is a special instrument, small enough to hold in the hand comfortably, which allows Dr. Lombardi to see precise detail in his visual examination of the skin. This hand-held instrument has a bright light for better viewing. It also has polarization through which glare from the light is minimized.
Using the dermatoscope, Dr. Lombardi views skin lesions and moles with 10x magnification. The combination of magnification and bright light shows the greatest detail of growths – even the layers that cannot be accurately seen with the naked eye.
Dermatoscopy has been widely practiced in Australia and Europe for several years. Its use in our office leads to accurate and early identification of anomalies in the skin, which equates to the earliest diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers, when present.
