6 Vascular structures Blood vessels are critical to the survival and growth of cells and tissues. The rate of growth and ultimate tumor size, whether benign or malignant, is governed at least in part by the tumor’s ability to derive ample blood flow to support the metabolic demands of its cells. Therefore, tumors may manifest signs of an increase in blood vessels and flow. This is readily observed in many basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) in which the clinical morphology often reveals telangiectasias. Although other tumors may not clinically manifest vasculature, vessels are indeed present but may be of small caliber or situated deeper within the skin. Dermoscopy, by providing magnification and visual access to subepidermal structures, has per- mitted clinicians to observe many of these vessels'"`UNIQ--ref-00000967-QINU`"'.

16 Analytic approach The 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.

While algorithms serve as guidelines that apply to the majority of cases, one should remember that every rule has exceptions. The recognition of the exceptions is essential for the maintenance of high diagnostic precision.
