CAD systems process digital images for typical appearances and to highlight conspicuous sections, such as possible diseases, in order to offer input to support a decision taken by the professional. of dermoscopy images

  • Automated PASI calculation
  • 3D imaging

They are very different and the best thing is to try them out under real world conditions in order to find out if the workflow of the software is compatible with your individual workflow.
