A series of total body images. This process is highly recommended for patients with 50 or more moles, a history of melanoma, or if someone in your immediate family has a history of melanoma.
Total body imaging (also known as total body photography, total body mapping, or mole mapping), is where a series of 28 photos of each body part are taken using DermEngine technology. This allows for Molescreen doctors to compare images of entire body areas, and simplifies the process of monitoring any differences.
Sudden changes in existing moles, or the appearance of a new mole can be sign of melanoma. However, these small differences can be difficult to detect solely based on a visual exam. DermEngine uses artificial technology to detect any potential changes, and when combined with a full body exam by a Molescreen Doctor, can be very effective in detecting harmful skin cancers from the earliest stages.
This process is highly recommended for patients with 50 or more moles, a history of melanoma, or if someone in your immediate family has a history of Melanoma.
