Correlation of Inflammoscopy
|Description||The use of dermoscopyThe examination of [skin lesions] with a 'dermatoscope'. This traditionally consists of a magnifier (typically x10), a non-polarised light source, a transparent plate and a liquid medium between the instrument and the skin, and allows inspection of skin lesions unobstructed by skin surface reflections. Modern dermatoscopes dispense with the use of liquid medium and instead use polarised light to cancel out skin surface reflections. is not limited to the dermato-oncology field. InflammoscopyThis glossary term has not yet been described. is the dermoscopic evaluation of inflammatory dermatoses and can provide valuable information for diagnosisis the identification of the nature and cause of a certain phenomenon. Diagnosis is used in many different disciplines with variations in the use of logic, analytics, and experience to determine "cause and effect". In systems engineering and computer science, it is typically used to determine the causes of symptoms, mitigations, and solutions and follow-up (table 8) (Sgouros et al., 2018).|
