As a part of non-invasive medical devices and techniques, researchers are focusing on techniques of dermoscopy
and advanced non-invasive imaging techniques including optical coherence tomography and reflectance confocal microscopy.
WAIKOLOA, HAWAII -- Sequential dermoscopy
imaging (SDI) is a valuable strategy for diagnosing melanomas early and with better sensitivity and specificity, compared with biopsy decisions based solely on the ugly duckling sign, the ABCDs of melanoma, or other aspects of lesion morphology, Michael A.
The data collected was tabulated in Microsoft Excel worksheet and descriptive statistical analysis was carried out for presenting the dermoscopy
parameters and sociodemographical parameters.
(polarized light systems) findings of LS more frequently demonstrate gray granular pigmentation.
The examination was performed clinically and using dermoscopy
. Dermoscopic examination was performed using a DermLite camera with polarized light (10x magnification; 3Gen, Dana Point, CA).
Color plays an important role in dermoscopy
. The color of the lesion depends on the localization of melanin in the skin.
The skin overlying the PIP joints was examined via dermoscopy
, and a cobblestone pattern and whitish scale were observed (Figure 4).

has become an increasingly used and valued tool in the assessment of various skin lesions, and more recently, inflammatory rashes.
