Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Anyone can be at risk of developing skin cancer, though the risk increases as you get older.
The majority of skin cancers in Australia are caused by exposure to UV radiation in sunlight.
Skin cancer is curable if it is detected early enough. The biggest risk factors are excessive exposure to sunlight and a family history.
Thanks to state-of-the-art medical technology, we help you to keep an eye on your skin – by means of a special skin cancer screening procedure.
In terms of safety and peace of mind, the advantages of computer-based skin cancer screening are obvious. With our regular check-ups we are able to maintain an overview of your existing and new moles.
Once images have been taken, they can be compared with new images time and time again. Minute changes are immediately evident and can be diagnosed early on.
Imagine your skin as a landscape. Total Body Mapping captures the entire skin surface long-term. We use a high-tech system to create a map of your moles (“body mark”) and take photographs of your body systematically – from head to toe and from all sides – within a few minutes.
The special software allows us to obtain a full evaluation of new or changed lesions instantly during your check-up. It goes without saying that your data will be treated as confidential.
In addition, conspicuous moles are also dermatoscopically documented.
Using a special video epiluminesence microscope we create highly magnified images of your moles, which clearly show the mole structure. This way, one can see whether the mole is suspicious or not.
You will be able to observe the absolutely pain-free examination on the screen. During the check-ups even minute changes of your moles will be visible.
