Explore the latest in skin imaging, including advances in the use of dermoscopy and confocal microscopy to distinguish skin lesions.
This case report study describes 2 patients with locally advanced primary melanomas and the use of reflectance confocal microscopy for imaging of cutaneous involvement and disease monitoring.
This study compares the accuracy of a convolutional neural network–based classifier with that of physicians with different levels of experience at classifying dermoscopic and close-up images of nonpigmented lesions.
This pilot study evaluates the use of multispectral optoacoustic tomography for assessment of biomarkers among patients with arteriovenous and venous malformation.
This case report describes the early diagnosis of skin melanoma metastasis by means of dermoscopy and confocal microscopy.
This pilot study of 85 lesions from 55 patients assesses the accuracy of a handheld imaging device that combines reflective confocal microscopy (RCM) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect, diagnose, and estimate the depth of basal cell carcinoma in adults.
This case report describes a process by which the dermoscopic “circle within a circle” feature can be correlated with findings of reflectance confocal microscopic (RCM) and en face histopathologic findings from a lentigo maligna lesion.
This cohort study identifies the dermoscopic features of subungual melanoma in situ in a Korean population and assesses a predictive scoring model that distinguishes the diagnosis of subungual melanoma in situ from longitudinal melanonychia in patients with pigmented nails.
This Viewpoint discusses how the dermoscope is a practical instrument for use in routine practice and describes how its shortcomings can be overcome with increasing familiarity with the use of dynamic vs static trichoscopy.
This study evaluates the learning curve, diagnostic accuracy, and challenges for a novice reader of reflectance confocal microscopy for determining a diagnosis of skin cancer.
A 40-year-old woman presented with an 8-year history of a growing erythematous plaque on the left lower eyelid; physical examination revealed a single plaque involving the left lower eyelid, including its border, and eyelashes were absent. What is your diagnosis?
This study uses a decision-analytic model to assess the cost-effectiveness of teledermoscopy as a referral mechanism for skin cancer diagnosis and management in Australia.
This diagnostic accuracy study compares dermoscopic criteria for diagnosis of melanoma in situ.
This case series describes 2 patients with balloon cell melanoma to evaluate the association of clinical and histopathologic characteristics with findings of gene expression profiling tests.
This study evaluates whether handheld reflectance confocal microscopy with radial video mosaicing improves diagnostic accuracy in patients with lentigo maligna and lentigo maligna melanoma.
This cohort study from the Study of Nevi in Children examines host, behavioral, and dermoscopic factors in early adolescence that are associated with a mole-prone phenotype in late adolescence.
This case series study reports in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) features of normal lips of different phototypes and attempts to identify features that assist in distinguishing melanoma from benign melanotic macules using dermoscopy and RCM.
This study compares the use of reflectance confocal microscopy with other measures used in diagnosis of pigmented facial macules.
This observational study evaluates the use of in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy for diagnosis in patients with conjunctival or eyelid margin neoformations.
