DermSpectra™ Automated Total Body Digital Skin Imaging recently released a whitepaper named Transforming Innovation in Skin Cancer Prevention, referencing the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer. This paper highlights an increased awareness for skin assessment practices, as well as the benefits of total body screening and genetic testing.
With the advancements in digital skin imaging technology, dermatologists are now able to monitor skin changes over a patient’s lifespan. By creating a total body patient baseline, digital images are taken consistently head to toe, and new and changing lesions can be more accurately assessed, monitored and documented for further examination.
DermSpectra™ fills a crucial gap in the digital skin imaging industry with the highest levels of precision in terms of “definition, timing, lighting, image quality, data formats, secure storage, and interfaces”. The DermSpectra™ Total Body Digital Skin Imaging System delivers a high-resolution imaging station, a secure HIPPA database, and image viewing applications for physicians and patients. Patients are given private in-office imaging sessions (8-10 minutes), where physicians can view the digital images immediately following the screening.
Transforming Innovation in Skin Cancer Prevention outlines the importance of educating individuals of all ages on the prevention strategies of skin cancer. Advancements in total body digital skin imaging like DermSpectra™ allow high-risk patients the ability to receive consistent and positive health results. By harnessing digital technology, at-risk patients can be empowered to become their own advocate for total body imaging in an effort to help prevent skin cancer.
