How does Total Body Mole Mapping work?
A new high-tech total body mapping system developed by FOTOFINDER in Germany, called Bodystudio ATBM,uses an automated imaging system to photograph the patient from head to toe.
In follow-up session, another set of head to toe images will be captured by ATBM and then it compares them with images from the previous examination.
The new or changed moles detected by the software are marked with red or yellow circles.
It allows monitoring of most of skin surface. It helps to detect malignant skin changes at an earliest possible stage and to avoid multiple excisions in patients at risk.
How is the skin check performed?
The skin check lasts around 20 minutes. The doctor will examine your body from head to toe. You will be required to undress to your underwear and a blanket can be provided for your comfort.
Genital areas are not routinely examined; however, skin cancers can develop in any area of the body and you should inform the doctor about any suspicious spots under your underwear.
The doctor will only check these areas if you request them to do so.
Please avoid wearing nail polish, make-up or a fake tan when you come in for your skin examination, as these products can disguise spots and make them harder to find.
The procedure is completely painless. If doctor finds a suspicious spot, they might take a photograph to be recorded and analysed, and they might take a biopsy which is a sample of the skin.
