Dermoscopy Workshop

Saturday   6 – 7 pm

Dermoscopes are easy to use
Placing liquid or gel onto the skin prior to placement of the glass plate of the dermoscope onto the lesion allows the clinician to view the lesion, through the magnifying ocular lens of the dermoscope, with exceptional clarity. The liquid interface, by matching the refractive index of the stratum corneum and glass plate, allows the clinician to visualize structures below the surface of the skin. The advent of polarized dermoscopes, however, has eliminated the necessity for a liquid interface or direct skin contact.

Dermoscopy can differentiate most lesions of the skin from melanoma
With naked-eye examination it is not unusual to come upon a pigmented lesion, which has some or all of the clinical attributes of melanoma, but on dermoscopy the lesion can be definitively diagnosed as some other type of cutaneous lesion
.

Dermoscopy helps differentiate melanocytic from nonmelanocytic lesions
This concept is explained in the “two-step” initial dermoscopic procedure, which differentiates melanocytic from nonmelanocytic lesions
.

Come hear Thomas Hornyak, MD DERMOSCOPES ( 3GEN / Dermlite)

DermLite and Early Skin Cancer Detection
The DermLite line of devices enable the trained eye to detect skin cancer and other types of skin conditions early. Every DermLite includes a magnification lens, light-emitting diode (LED) lighting, and most have polarizing filters for glare reduction. These polarizing filters eliminate the need for skin contact and the required liquids, allowing a much quicker, more convenient examination.

DermLite is Efficient
With the elimination of immersion fluids, there is no setup required. The inconveniences of immersion fluids are a thing of the past. You'll work quicker, allowing you to screen more lesions on more patients than ever before. Plus, DermLite's LEDs last much longer, use a lot less energy and are white and brighter than ancient bulbs used in other devices.
