Teledermatology

Get a rapid and accurate diagnosis

What is Teledermatology?

DermView’s teledermatology enables the patient to recieve a rapid, accurate diagnosis from a leading dermatology consultant in Ireland.

In teledermoscopy, a specialist can receive digital dermoscopic lesion images through electronic transmission to examine them. DermView is a telediagnostic platform that enables specialists to do this.

Dermoscopy refers to the technical field of utilizing an epiluminescence microscope to view skin lesions in magnification in-vivo. It is especially useful in quickly detecting malignant skin lesions or melanoma.

The images and medical notes are assessed remotely by Consultant Dermatologists, without having to see the patient in person or via video link.

Digital dermoscopic images use specialist cameras designed for dermoscopy. As dermoscopy involves the examination of two-dimensional images, it perfectly suits digital imaging and teledermatology.

Leading Consultant dermatologists, Mohs surgeons, Plastic surgeons, Maxillofacial surgeons, and GP’s, are all using the DermView platform ensuring the formation of a state-of-the-art system.

The Clinic Process

Upon arrival at the clinic for your consultation, the Scanning Nurse will record your relevant medical history and complete a series of high definition microscopic and macroscopic images of the skin complaint from your referral using specialist imaging equipment.

What Happens Next

The images of your skin complaint along with the medical history taken by the Scanning Nurse will be reviewed by a DermView Consultant Dermatologist who will provide results and a treatment plan.
