Valuable Analytics

Visual Search utilizes advanced deep learning algorithms to retrieve visually similar images to your current patient case from a bank of thousands of pathology-labeled dermoscopic images. The software will then provide you with statistics relating to the top diagnoses and risk of malignancy of these similar images to allow you to make better informed clinical decisions.

Fuelled by artificial intelligence, this software becomes continuously smarter as more images are added to the database.* This ensures that DermEngine’s Visual Search will be able to provide you with continuously enhanced insights when examining patient cases.
