Digital Dermoscopy Monitoring
Atypical lesions. The doctor may select one or a few lesions of concern for dermoscopic monitoring
Sequential digital dermoscopy imaging (SDDI) involves the assessment of successive dermoscopic images to allow the detection of suspicious dermoscopic change in melanomas that lack dermoscopic evidence of melanoma at a particular time. We perform 3 months short-term digital monitoring and 6 months long-term monitoring.
Short term computerized (digital) monitoring over a 3-month period has sensitivity of 94% and specificity of 83% for the diagnosis of melanoma.
99.2% of lesions that are not changing in 3 months are benign. 96% of melanoma are changing after 3 months.
Long term computerized monitoring over a 6-month period has a sensitivity of 97% for the diagnosis of melanoma.
