A system for the practice
Nevi documentation, computer supported diagnosis, photographical documentation of clinical findings, hair analysis with digital trichogram function, telemedicine, practice marketing - you can cover all areas of photographical documentation and processing with a modular microDERM® image system.
Quick and simple daily use
Time is in short supply in day-to-day life and the design of the microDERM® system keeps this in mind. The intuitive user interface allows efficient work. No mouse click is superfluous and no key has to be pressed unnecessarily. Many working processes have been automated so that an examination can be made during the same time it would take using a hand-held dermoscope.The patient database can store all important information and allows for importing and exporting of images.
Staying on the safe side
Complex documentations can be performed in only a few steps. The location related storage of images developed and used for the first time by Visiomed ensures quick and reproducible work. Images can be assigned in a practical manner on either a live overview taken of the patient or a pre-drawn graphic overview. The automatic follow-up examination is even faster. If another image of the same lesion is taken at a later time, microDERM® can automatically display the previous image alongside the new image for comparison during a follow-up examination.
Sound diagnostic support
After the image has been captured the integrated DANAOS expert system can calculate a classification value based on the world’s largest multi-centre study for computer-aided early detection of skin cancer. Borderline lesions can thus be classified reliably and quickly by their dermoscopical relevant features using the ABCD-rule as well as self-teaching neural networks.
A follow-up examination using the microDERM® system can support modern medical care. Details can be magnified in steps and an automatic display comparing earlier findings with the current images allows the system to show even the smallest changes in the skin. The integrated DANAOS expert system is able to calculate changes of archived images.
Overview or dermoscopic images
at the touch of a button
Standardized dermoscopic images are the basis of an advanced image system. But the day-to-day requirements in a modern dermatological practice are far beyond that: aesthetic operations, laser treatments and the documentation of treatment successes require clinical images.
Only images in brilliant quality will guarantee reliability and convince the patient. The macro-function can be used to document even large skin zones without an inconvenient change to the optics. All essential steps can be controlled directly via the camera to save time and allow more attention to the patient.
In addition to microscopic images, the system can also provide clinical images in a brilliant quality, which can be archived for documentation purposes. The images can be sent by e-mail and can also be printed on high-quality photographic paper. It is also possible to export images to prepare lecture slides.
Simple, quick and reliable telemedicine
Images can be sent to colleagues and laboratories with the click of the mouse, using e-mail. It is also possible to discuss images with colleagues online in an Internet conference. The partners only need Internet access. Extensive coding and seamless integration allow extremely user-friendly operation with maximum reliability.
It’s the details which make the use of the microDERM® system so efficient and convenient in every day use. Experience gained from years of development and the close co-operation with dermatological clinics and established specialists throughout Europe have resulted in a product that meets the challenging demands of modern dermatology. All components meet the stringent regulations governing medical products.
