Trichoscopy is a method of medical imaging, non-invasive, in vivo, of hair and scalp and is used to diagnose hair and scalp disorders. The method of investigation is based on dermatoscopy. Trichoscopy visualizes hair and scalp structures with the help of special cameras that magnify up to 70 times and store the captured images. By means of trichoscopy, changes in hair, blood vessels, scalp pigment patterns, and skin can be noticed to make a more accurate diagnosis.
