The future of skin cancer diagnosis is connected

Mon, 11/14/2011 - 5:11am
At Medica fair 2011 in Germany, FotoFinder presents the future of early skin cancer detection. In the center of attention is the fast diagnostic exchange between doctors using mobile communication technology.

With handyscope for iPhone and the corresponding App, FotoFinder has linked dermoscopy with smartphone technology.

Now, the new online-platform Hub allows doctors to upload handyscope pictures to their private webspace in the web-database via a secured connection to store them and request a rating from international skin cancer experts. Pictures from suspicious moles can be immediately sent to the experts to confirm the initial diagnosis with a second opinion.

This opens up new possibilities for teledermatology: also patients without access to specialists can get best diagnostic quality in case of skin cancer suspicion. They can benefit from their doctors network and count on an accurate and fast diagnosis. Thanks to the early skin cancer detection, the chance of healing can be improved substantially.

"Hub and handyscope lead the way to widespread skin cancer prevention as the second opinion service gives patients worldwide the chance of early detection with precise diagnosis," explains Andreas Mayer, CEO of FotoFinder Systems.

The Hub works with handyscope, the first mobile connected dermatoscope. The precision engineered lens is connected to the iPhone and allows taking mole pictures with up to twentyfold magnification. The brilliant microscopic pictures show important details of moles at a glance.
