DermaTrak Skin Imaging Centers help you and your physician monitor changes in existing moles, detect the presence of new moles, and aid in screening for melanoma.
Total Body Photography (TBP) is also referred to as Whole Body Integumentary Photography and is an important tool for the early detection of skin cancer. TBP is a medical procedure in which the skin covering most of the body is documented in a series of sectional photos.
Melanoma is serious.
Every year over 50,000 people in the United States develop melanoma. Every hour someone dies from it. Most melanomas have an early stage where many develop as changing moles. When detected and diagnosed early, melanoma is easily cured. When not found in its early stages it is very difficult to treat.
Mole mapping by TBP at a DermaTrak Skin Imaging Center is one of the best ways to document the clinical appearance of your moles for future reference. Leading medical centers and private dermatologists employ TBP to aid in the early detection of melanoma.
