The primitive diagnosis of melanoma mainly relies on the precise assessment by the dermatologist using a dermoscope
Dermoscopy for common skin problems in Chinese children using a novel Hong Kong-made dermoscope
. Hong KongMedJ.
For scalp examination, a manual dermoscope
(10X magnification) or a video-dermoscope with lenses ranging from 50x to 200x magnifications can be used.
The lesions were imaged under original magnification x50 and then photographed under a dermoscope
with white light.
epiluminescence microscopy, dermatoscopy, or amplified surface microscopy) uses a handheld microscope called a dermatoscope (or dermoscope
) for in vivo examination ofskin lesions.
Another alternative option is using a 'dermoscope
' diagnosis method.
is non-invasive diagnostic tool, which allows rapid and magnified in-vivo observation of the skin and helps in visualization of certain morphologic features invisible to naked eye.
This is achieved by a microscopic examination using a dermoscope
(x10 magnification), which considerably improves the clinical diagnostics of pigmented skin lesions.
The first device of this kind, MelaFind is a multi-spectral computer vision system with a handheld component that captures the image of a lesion with a dermoscope
through a thin layer of alcohol applied to the skin.
Patients were examined using Heine Delta 20 Plus dermoscope
