From dermoscopedia

This is the page on the glossary term Dermoscopy which is relevant on dermoscopedia. See also the list of terms.

Description

The 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.

The recognition of the exceptions is essential for the maintenance of high diagnostic precision.
