"Early dection is vital is the treatment of Melanoma. Currently there is no cure for late stage Melanoma. New Diagnostic tools that complement the visual examination of the skin could significantly enhance the detection process"
Detection using total body Mapping
Total body mapping is an advanced method that allows you to keep track of your skin. With the Fotofinder system, moles, spots and other landmarks on the skin are able to be analysed in high resolution and the location saved onto your body map for future reference.
Total body mapping has become a "must do" procedure for monitoring high risk patients with personal or familial history of melanoma or dysplastic nevi syndrome. The most reliable way to detect new moles is a periodic side-by-side comparison of baseline and follow-up photos.
