The dermoscopic features of superficial basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and Bowen’s disease have been extensively investigated, and dermoscopy was shown to significantly improve their recognition. However, incorrectly diagnosed cases still exist, with a considerable number of BCCs dermoscopically interpreted as Bowen’s disease. Continue reading “[4 min read] Dermoscopic criteria differentiation between BCC and Bowen’s disease”
Yes, the robots are coming! This month I share an article published in PLOS One in March this year. There is now a steady stream of research papers showing how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is effective in accurately diagnosing skin cancers. Continue reading “[4 min read] How will artificial intelligence benefit GPs in skin cancer medicine?”
[6 min watch] In this skin cancer update, Professor Giuseppe Argenziano discusses the best practice for patient follow-up, especially for patients with multiple moles. Continue reading “Skin Cancer Update with Prof Giuseppe Argenziano [December 2018]”
[4 min watch] Would you like a training tool to help exercise your knowledge in dermoscopy? In this skin cancer update, Professor Giuseppe Argenziano demonstrates a new application called YouDermoscopy, featuring over 800 real-life cases. You can upload your own cases to seek a second opinion and assist your colleagues to reach a diagnosis. Continue reading “Skin Cancer Update with Prof Giuseppe Argenziano [November 2018]”
We all continue to be plagued by the problem of dysplastic naevi, and especially what to do if we biopsy these lesions and the pathology report comes back with “margins involved”. What should we do? Continue reading “[3 min read] The problem of dysplastic naevi”
In the short video below, you will learn more about commonly asked questions about dermatoscopes, including the differences between various models and why you might choose one tool over another. Dermatoscopes and skin viewers are ideal for everyday use in your general practice and aid in the accurate diagnosis of skin cancers and other skin conditions, leading to improved patient outcomes.

Pathology reports of basal cell carcinoma biopsies often contain comments of positive or negative margins, with only one to two per cent of the margin evaluated. A recent study sought to determine the negative predictive value of basal cell carcinoma biopsy margin status on the absence of residual basal cell carcinoma in the corresponding excision.
More than 500 dermoscopists have completed the Medical University of Vienna’s DermaChallenge led by Harald Kittler’s team. Learn more about some of the world’s best dermoscopists who have beat the computer algorithm.
