Dermoscopy is a clinical technique which allows for detailed examination of skin lesions and is more clinically accurate in skin oncology than other diagnostic tools. Extensively used as an educational text, previous editions of this atlas have led to significant reductions in excisions or referrals of pigmented skin lesions.
‘Dermoscopy: An Atlas 3e’ is a practical and comprehensive manual that will improve your results in diagnosis of skin tumors and related conditions. This well illustrated, highly acclaimed reference provides a complete understanding of the use of dermoscopy, explaining diagnostic features and examining benign melanocytic, melanoma and non-melanocytic lesions.
This book will be of interest to general practitioners, skin cancer specialists, dermatologists and any clinician involved in diagnosing skin tumors and related conditions.
