• A method of taking total-body photographs to document dysplastic nevi is described. A set of 24 views is taken. These 35-mm color slide transparencies are projected onto a rearview screen at the time of subsequent follow-up examinations. A comparison between the baseline photographs and the current clinical findings allows the physician to detect thin malignant melanomas in a curable stage.
