Rule #2: Use your dermatoscope
(it's great for nails)
A digital dermatoscope
Dinolite[R] (of magnification x25-60) was used for this purpose.
Trichoscopy, an examination of hair and scalp regions using a dermatoscope
, is a common technique used to identify hair-pulling behavior.
Dermoscopic examination was performed with a hand-held dermatoscope
(Dermlite DL4, 3gen) and the images were captured.
is a hand-held device for examining the appearance of the skin.
Examination of the patch under a dermatoscope
revealed islands of reticular (lattice-like) hyperpigmentation, focal hypopigmentation, and prominent follicles (FIGURE 2).
In patients and controls, an experienced dermatologist physician, who was blinded to the clinical diagnosis of the patient, made a nail fold capillary examination using a standard dermatoscope
. Each patient rested in a test room with a room temperature of 20 [degrees]C-22 [degrees]C for 15 min.
 using EcoSkin fluorescence video dermatoscope
found increased autofluorescence in lesional psoriatic skin, significantly correlated with erythema in patients with psoriasis (n = 30) from South Korea.
which has been used was DermLite DL4 from 3Gen[R], San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675, USA; and, for the acquisition of the dermatoscopic images, the camera lens was applied to the DermoLite[R] MagnetiConnect TM device of the 3Gen[R] Connection Kit for iPhone6 P / N: DLCKi6-MC, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675, USA, with the dermatoscope
at position 0, in polarized mode, without making use of flash or zoom camera assets.
"Humans can't predict under-the-skin pathology from looking from the top." Visual inspection is subjective, he relates, even by physicians using a dermatoscope
to see superficial and subsuperficial skin features and trained in the ABCDE-- area, border, color, diameter, evolution--protocol.
was also used to reflect, refract, and diffract light from the surface of the skin, otherwise not seen by the naked eye.
epiluminescence microscopy, dermatoscopy, or amplified surface microscopy) uses a handheld microscope called a dermatoscope
(or dermoscope) for in vivo examination ofskin lesions.
