Expert Diagnosis of Suspicious Moles
Accuracy is important when dealing with melanomas, as you don’t get a second chance.
Skin Cancer Education
Knowledge is power, which is why we want you to know what lesions to look out for and how to protect you and your family. Many patients have identified skin cancer on their friends and family members after their Mole Mapping appointment with us.
Head-to-toe Skin Check
Our skilled Melanographers, advanced technologists and experienced doctors will conduct a thorough examination of your skin, assessing moles using a dermatoscope – a device used to view the intricate structures of a mole. Moles that meet our criteria will be imaged using a specialised digital dermoscopic camera to create a view of the internal structures (dermoscopic image) and the external structures (clinical image) for subsequent medical diagnosis and comparison.
Total Body Photography
Knowing where your moles aren’t is as important as knowing where they are, because up to 50% of melanoma appears in new skin. You will have a standardised set of high-resolution photographs taken, which will create a complete visual record of your skin surface to identify new moles that appear and changes in existing ones.
Monitoring Changes in your Moles and Skin Over Time
The 52% of melanomas we find are because we have identified the slightest of change by comparing images over time. We will identify changes in your skin since your previous appointment through Sequential Digital Dermoscopic Imaging (SDDI) and Clinical Imaging.
