Dermoscopy (also called dermatoscopy), is an essential tool for dermatologists, plastic surgeons, general practitioners and other health care professionals treating early diagnosis of melanoma. Using dermoscopy to evaluate pigmented lesions, the abnormal structural features of melanoma can be identified. Borderline lesions may be closely observed and benign lesions can be confidently diagnosed without the need for a biopsy. Dermoscopy is also increasingly useful in the diagnosis of non-pigmented skin lesions and inflammatory dermatoses.
