Dermoscopy

Dermoscopy (cutaneous surface microscopy) is a term that describes the use of an incident light magnification system to examine skin lesions. This results in a more detailed examination and a more accurate assessment of lesions. Studies show that this special technique improves the sensitivity for the diagnosis of malignant melanoma and other skin cancers by 39%. Drs. Farah have learned and mastered this new technique to provide the best possible care for their patients.
