In order to provide quality care while promoting the early detection of skin cancer, patients must be involved in their skin health. In addition to providing patients with educational resources, dermatologists are now able to offer MoleScope- a mobile dermoscope designed for in-home use.
A dermoscope is designed to support dermatologists in identifying changes to the skin. Although the majority argue that a dermatoscope is an essential tool, some experts still do not use the device. This article looks to investigate the reasoning behind this while discussing potential solutions.
It is well documented that teledermoscopy has been rapidly gaining popularity in recent years. This article looks to uncover and summarize the top three latest and exciting news about this developing field in dermoscopy and what it means for the future of the healthcare industry.
In part 1 we investigated the accuracy of diagnoses with the use of digital dermoscopes like MoleScope II in contrast to without the use of a device. Part two will provide a more comprehensive look at cost-effectiveness while discussing potential methods for enhancing care in dermatology.
We are excited to announce that MetaOptima Technology was listed as a winner of the Ready To Rocket contest in the area of Digital Health for its technologies (MoleScope, our mobile dermoscope and DermEngine, our intelligent dermatology software). Congratulations to all!
Studies show a majority of dermatologists use a dermoscope, as it is an essential part of their practice. Although generally agreed that a digital dermatoscope valuable for the early detection of skin cancer and other skin conditions, the cost-effectiveness of this device remains widely speculated.
To combat the rising rates of skin cancer, medical professionals must be equipped with advanced dermoscopy tools designed to optimize and enhance their practice.
