Dermoscopic Diagnosis - at a Glance Dermoscopy has been proven to improve diagnostic accuracy of dermatologic lesions. This practical textbook - based on a road-tested training program in dermoscopy - introduces you to the basics of dermoscopy. Easy-to-view icons show the dermoscopic features of lesions. These are compared over handy two-page spreads with actual dermoscopic and clinical images to show the lesion in practice. The identification of global and local features of skin lesions through the dermoscope will help you incorporate dermoscopy into your everyday practice. The simple but effective visual approach to pattern recognition will enable you to teach yourself and your colleagues the power of dermoscopy. Covering melanocytic lesions, melanomas, non-melanocytic lesions, special sites, and general dermatological lesions, Diagnostic Dermoscopy gives you: - A guide to choosing and using the dermoscope most suited to your needs - An introduction to the dermoscopic alphabet - A visual guide to the global features of dermatologic disease through the dermoscope - A more detailed look at the local structure of skin lesions for more accurate diagnosis This proven approach to learning the language and skills of dermoscopy will enable you, as a dermatologist, plastic surgeon, family practitioner or dermatologic nurse, to improve your diagnostic accuracy and clinical efficiency.show more
