Sydney, Australia, April 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The DermLite range of dermatoscopes, the new generation of polarised dermatoscopes, are available from Equipmed. They are highly portable, compact and lightweight – a considerable advantage over bulky traditional skin cancer detection devices.
All DermLite products feature a magnification lens, light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and polarising filters – so there is no need for skin contact or immersion fluid. This makes them more efficient and convenient to use, allowing you to screen more lesions on more patients than ever before.
The DermLite LED lighting lasts longer than older light bulbs, uses less energy, and are whiter and brighter. Each DermLite dermatoscope comes with a 5 year warranty, making them a wise investment for any dermatology practice.
Early skin cancer detection devices, such as dermatoscopes (also called dermoscopes), are essential aids in the early detection of skin cancers. They can be used by dermatologists to screen for, and diagnose melanomas, basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, skin tumors, scabies, warts, fungal infections, and hair and scalp diseases. They can be used for the examination of skin lesions to distinguish whether they are benign or malignant (i.e. cancerous).
Over 95% of skin cancers can be successfully treated if detected early enough. This is why it is important to use only the best early detection equipment available on the market, like DermLite. This can literally save lives.
Dermatoscopy (or dermoscopy) has many advantages over dermatologists using the naked eye for lesion examination. Diagnostic accuracy in detection by dermatoscopy has been proven by studies to be significantly better than naked eye examination. It also reduces the need for unnecessary surgical incisions of benign lesions.
Traditional dermatoscopes use a magnifier, a non-polarised light source, a transparent plate, and an immersion fluid between the skin and instrument (to cancel out skin surface reflections).
Modern dermatoscopes, such as DermLite, don’t need immersion fluid at all, as they use polarised light to cancel out the reflections. This makes the examination of several lesions quicker and easier, as dermatologists no longer have to stop in between examinations to apply more oil to the skin.
Another advantage of dry epiluminescence is that vascular patterns have less chance of being missed through the compression of the skin by the glass contact plate. This means that basal cell carcinoma detection is greatly enhanced.
These important advantages mean that purchasing a DermLite dermatoscope from Equipmed is a wise decision, both for your patients and for your business.
