The Dermatoscope for Skin Examination in Dermatology
The dermatoscope is a medical diagnostic instrument used in dermatology to perform thorough examinations of a patient's skin (dermoscopy). This medical device often uses illumination and a lens with special optics to view the skin under magnification in order to provide information on signs of cancer, such as melanoma. A dermatologist will use this device for skin cancer prevention, early recognition and screening with the most common use being diagnostic observation of moles for possible melanoma. A dermoscopy device typically consists of an illumination source (halogen bulb or LEDs) combined with a microscopic lens for magnification of the lesion and a contact plate; it also comes in various versions thereof, e.g., a pocket dermascope.
Wide Range of Dermatoscopes & Dermatology Products
In this category, you will find high-quality dermatoscope heads which can be used together with a compatible handle or battery handle (rechargeable), as well as the compatible contact plate for each. A rechargeable handle offers the advantage of one being able to reuse it without changing the batteries. Just as with compact polarised light dermatoscopes, some instrument heads can be used with dermoscopy oil as a contact liquid, which makes the outer skin layer transparent; thus allowing for a more accurate diagnosis of the lesion when using a contact plate. Others, like the Heine Delta 20 T dermatoscope or many Dermlite models from 3gen, can even be connected to a digital camera or smartphone to document the results of the examination and view them again later. Such images from the dermoscopy help determine proper treatment of the lesion, as the skin can be further evaluated on the photo without requiring the patient to be present.
Our online shop offers you a large assortment of products from DermLite as well as those with scaled contact plates from Heine Optotechnik, Welch Allyn, KaWe and Riester.
