Clinical Dermatology


Dermatoscopy is a non-invasive method for a detailed examination of the surface layers of the skin and its various formations (moles, vascular lesions, pigmentation, nail diseases, etc.) using a device called a dermatoscope. The device allows magnification of the examined skin structures up to 10 times, which is significantly more than a simple inspection with the naked eye.


Through a dermatoscopic examination, it is easier to differentiate between benign and malignant changes in the skin. In this way, the frequency of unnecessary removal of skin formations is reduced and the early diagnosis of skin cancer (melanoma) and its prevention are supported.



Dermatoscopic examination is indicated in all cases with an increased risk of malignancy of skin formations, as well as in the presence of suspicious lesions that are subject to dynamic follow-up.


In modern dermatoscopy, polarized light can additionally be used, which makes the surface of the skin transparent and allows examination of the deeper layers of the epidermis and dermis. In addition, digital imaging allows objective tracking of the dynamics of development and evolution of the skin structure over time.


Carrying out a dermatoscopic examination does not require special preparation on the part of the patient. A necessary condition is the use of a quality dermatoscope and additional qualification of the dermatologist.
