At Medica fair 2011 in Germany, FotoFinder presents the
future of early skin cancer detection. In the center of attention is the fast
diagnostic exchange between doctors using mobile communication technology.
With handyscope for iPhone and the corresponding App,
FotoFinder has linked dermoscopy with smartphone technology.
Now, the new online-platform Hub allows doctors to upload
handyscope pictures to their private webspace in the web-database via a secured
connection to store them and request a rating from international skin cancer
experts. Pictures from suspicious moles can be immediately sent to the experts
to confirm the initial diagnosis with a second opinion.
This opens up new possibilities for teledermatology: also
patients without access to specialists can get best diagnostic quality in case
of skin cancer suspicion. They can benefit from their doctors network and
count on an accurate and fast diagnosis. Thanks to the early skin cancer
detection, the chance of healing can be improved substantially.
“Hub and handyscope lead the way to widespread skin cancer
prevention as the second opinion service gives patients worldwide the chance of
early detection with precise diagnosis,” explains Andreas Mayer, CEO of FotoFinder
The Hub works with handyscope, the first mobile connected
dermatoscope. The precision engineered lens is connected to the iPhone and
allows taking mole pictures with up to twentyfold magnification. The brilliant
microscopic pictures show important details of moles at a glance.
