Thanks to the FotoFinder Bodystudio ATBM system a full body map can be made, in a quick, easy and exact manner.
The camera moves automatically up and down, obtaining perfectly illuminated images using the BodyFlash system.
The photographed area visible on the screen and the captured images are automatically stored in the patient’s database.
During a subsequent scanning, the FotoFinder BodyScan system automatically compares the new images with those from the database and identifies the new lesions or any changes occurred on the old ones.
All the clinical and dermatoscopic images are captured with the FotoFinder Medicam 1000 HD new camera, which presents the dermatoscopic images in a polarized and non-polarized light, depending on the followed-up structures, for a further accurate reevaluation, usually every three months.
The dermatoscopic map or total body scan is indicated for patients with multiple lesions (over 100 nevi on the whole body or over 11 located on the forearm), lesions that are hardly accessible for self-examination, patients with a history of abnormal lesions, atypical nevi, personal or familial antecedents of melanoma or other skin cancer.
For patients with no lesions at risk, body scanning should be performed annually to be an effective screening test. If during the dermatoscopy your doctor determines that some lesions are at high risk, he or she will decide to dermatoscopically re-evaluate you in shorter periods of time (3-6 months), depending on the history of the lesions and the history of each patient.
At Skinmed Clinic, you will be examined by a specialist dermatologist with training and experience in the field of dermatoscopy using top-of-the-range ATBM (Automated Total Body Mapping). Full body scanning will be done after a medical exam with your dermatologist, who will determine whether it is appropriate for you, will answer your questions and any concerns you may have, and then determine the frequency of re-evaluations, as well as the steps to take in the case of any suspect lesions.
