Other diagnostic strategies / algorithms
|Description||In this chapter we describe other 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. algorithms|

In the previous articles we presented the diagnostic algorithms which are used the most and which have proven their efficacy in daily practice. We acknowledged that many more have been published over the years and we would be more than happy to add them if you feel that this is of benefit.

Algorithms can perform calculation, data processing and automated reasoning tasks. that is missing from dermoscopediaDermoscopedia is the name of this website and is providing state of knowledge information concerning dermoscopy - a non invasive diagnostic method..
