Mole Scanning Service / DermoSight
Would you know what to look for?
Which mole is the Malignant Melanoma?
Left = Normal
Right = Melanoma!
Did you guess right?
Skin cancer is the most common cancer overall in the UK. Malignant Melanoma has increased by 400% over the last 35 years.
Early detection improves outcomes and saves lives.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with DeepX Health and their DermoSight Mole Scanning Service technology to offer you a mole and skin scanning service using the latest technology.
The Dermatoscope used to capture your skin condition or singular lesion is a bespoke camera. Specifically developed to capture amazing quality images of your skin.
The Dermatoscope allows the healthcare professional to take two images of your skin condition or singular lesion.
The first image is a distance image, known as a clinical image.
The second image is an extreme close up image known as a Dermatoscopic image.
Someone thought this was a harmless mole…
This mole was a Melanoma. if you leave a lesion like this you COULD end up with a big scar or worse!
At Vysana, we always say, if in doubt, get it checked out!
What to expect when you attend a consultation?
The process of the consultation is simple and very quick. Our clinic professionals will ask you a pre-scan questionnaire about your sun exposure to UVA/UVB & general skin health/history.
The skin condition or lesion is imaged using a non-invasive Dermatoscopice camera. Once the images are saved, we will ask a series of post-scan questions regarding the skin condition or lesion history.
A Dermatology Consultant will review the scans, a report will be sent out directly or a Healthcare professional will contact you regarding treatment or any follow-up that may be required.
Remember, early detection improves outcomes and saves lives.
Do you know your ABCs?
An irregular shape. The 2 halves should be symmetrical.
Look for unclear, irregular, or ragged borders.
Changes in colour. Especially black, blue or uneven colour.
More than 5 - 6mm in diameter and change in size.
Changes in shape, size, colour. Itching or bleeding of an existing mole, or if a new mole/lesion appears.
We recommend you use the ABCDE rule as a tool to assess characteristics of normal moles versus abnormal moles.
Not all skin cancers look the same. If you have any new or changing lesion or mole, use the ABCDE and if you have any doubt at all, get it checked!
Our aim at Vysana is to provide a professional healthcare service that provides a way for our patients to address their skin concerns as and when they need it. We support the vision and aims of DeepX Health:
"Our ultimate goal is to utilise technology to promote the early detection of skin cancer and other skin diseases saving time, money and most importantly peoples lives around the world!"
We can achieve clear high quality clinical and dermatoscopic images with the DermSight skin scanning camera. These images alongside a comprehensive medical and skin history are shared with our nominated Dermatologist. It takes 3-5 days for a report to be produced which can then help us to provide reassurance, diagnosis and potential treatment plan.
What is a skin cancer?
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer worldwide, and early detection is crucial for successful treatment.
However, the current diagnostic tools available to many general practitioners often lead to unnecessary referrals and delayed diagnoses, which can result in significant costs and negative outcomes for patients.
This is where a digital dermatoscope can make a significant difference.
What is a digital dermatoscope?
A digital dermatoscope is a handheld device that uses magnification and lighting to provide a detailed view of the skin. It allows doctors to examine moles and other skin lesions with greater accuracy, enabling them to make a more informed diagnosis.
With the use of a digital dermatoscope, GPs can screen patients for suspicious moles, assess their risk of developing skin cancer and refer them to a dermatologist for further examination, if needed.
advantages of digital dermatoscope
In conclusion, a digital dermatoscope can significantly improve the accuracy of skin cancer diagnosis, reduce the number of unnecessary referrals, help with early detection of melanoma, and reduce waiting times for dermatologist consultations. By providing GPs with a more efficient and effective diagnostic tool, a digital dermatoscope can improve patient outcomes, save time and money for the healthcare system, and ultimately save lives.
