The dermoscope offers a wide variety of benefits to dermatologists and other medical professionals. Proven to enhance diagnosis accuracy, the dermatoscope is an essential tool in any dermatologist's practice. In recent years, a new type of dermoscope has been introduced to the field of dermoscopy: the mobile dermoscope. Equipped with the latest imaging tools, mobility, and affordability, this article outlines the top 8 reasons dermatologists are upgrading to the newest mobile dermoscopes available.
As telemedicine (with a focus in teledermoscopy) continues its rise in usage, certain challenges have arisen in addition to the recognized benefits. This article summarizes the top trends dominating the field of telemedicine through the use of teledermoscopy software such as DermEngine, statistics relating to monetary and popularity growth, as well as discussions for how obstacles will be overcome and what to expect in upcoming years.
The dermoscope is an essential tool for the practice of dermatology. As smartphone cameras have continued to increase in resolution quality, the mobile dermatoscope has been steadily introduced as an imaging method for dermatology practices. This article will compare the benefits and challenges of a mobile dermoscope in contrast to a traditional dermatoscope with the intention of understanding the future developments for dermoscopy.
In part 1 of Total Body Photography: The Latest Tools, we discussed how full body imaging is an area of growing interest for dermatologists and skin cancer specialists alike, as it provides valuable support towards the continued imaging of high-risk patients. However, it was also agreed that the process is not without its flaws. Part 2 of this article looks to discuss how tools can be used to provide solutions to concerns such as consistent medical imaging for multiple patient visits, and tools to support and simplify the process of identifying of any new or changing spots.
Today marks the 2nd Annual Telus Ventures Summit held in Toronto, Canada. We are excited to announce that MetaOptima's CEO & Co-Founder, Maryam Sadeghi will be attending the event to discuss the latest breakthroughs and innovations for artificial intelligence in dermatology and dermoscopy.
Total body photography (also known as full body imaging, or total body imaging) has become an area of growing interest in the world of dermatology due to its ability to photograph patients with a large number of spots/moles or those at a greater risk of developing skin cancer.1 Systems such as DermEngine offer intelligent dermatology tools designed to further streamline the imaging process while optimizing image analyses. Part 1 of this article looks to investigate how these features will impact practices and how it can benefit skin cancer early detection.
Surveys demonstrate that over 254 million North Americans own or have access to a smartphone in 2018.1 Due to this rising trend in technology, companies are continuously developing a wide variety of tools designed to support patients in all aspects of their health, such as blood pressure, exercise, glucose levels, and the detection of different types of skin cancer. CBC's medical columnist Dr. Peter Lin recently recognized MoleScope as being one of these valuable tools in digital healthcare.
In 2017, multiple studies suggested that artificial intelligence (AI) has reached the capacity to match or exceed dermatologists in diagnosing skin cancers.1,2 Although only a single case of how artificial intelligence can be utilized within the healthcare sector, it is an excellent example of how deep learning tools are continuing to flourish in the field of dermoscopy. This article looks to summarize some of the latest applications of artificial intelligence (AI) while discussing their advantages and benefits within the healthcare system.

Research demonstrates that in order to provide patients with fast and effective care for the early detection of skin cancer, they must be involved in their skin health process. In addition to providing patients with educational materials and practices (such as the ABCDE method for monthly skin checks) dermatologists and physicians are now able to offer patients MoleScope: a mobile dermoscope designed for in-home use.
