Skin cancer early detection constitutes the biggest challenge of dermatology practices. The application of teledermatology and total body photography has brought great improvements in detecting the disease at early stages with higher survival rates and important saving in the public health systems.
Total Body Photography (or full-body imaging) is useful for monitoring patients with a greater risk of developing skin cancer. However, with this method requires many imaging sessions in a clinic setting. How are dermatologists addressing this challenge while ensuring patients receive quality care?
Skin cancer is a problem that affects us all. In spite of the widely recognized importance of skin cancer early detection, rates continue to increase. Overwhelmed, dermatologists are starting to empower patients with mobile dermoscopes to take skin cancer imaging into their own hands.
Artificial intelligence is rapidly changing how healthcare practices are performed. Dermatology is benefitting from the use of intelligent algorithms that can help streamline doctors’ work and improve patient experience by enhanced clinical decisions in skin cancer diagnoses.
