Analytic approachThe analytic approach refers to algorithmic method for the diagnosis of pigmented lesions using dermoscopy.

The essence of pattern analysis is a structured description formulated using a clearly defined algorithmic method. The diagnostic method is structured in such a way that one starts by describing the most general of features, then proceeds progressively to finish with the most specific features. The algorithm always takes the general form: Pattern + Color + Clues = Diagnosis

Using patterns, colors and clues, the number of potential diagnoses is progressively minimized. Pattern is a method by which algorithms are constructed.
