Argenziano, Giuseppe; Giacomel, Jason; Zalaudek, Iris; Blum, Andreas; Braun, Ralph P; Cabo, Horacio; Halpern, Allan; Hofmann-Wellenhof, Rainer; Malvehy, Josep; Marghoob, Ashfaq A; Menzies, Scott; Moscarella, Elvira; Pellacani, Giovanni; Puig, Susana; Rabinovitz, Harold; Saida, Toshiaki; Seidenari, Stefania; Soyer, H Peter; Stolz, Wilhelm; Thomas, Luc; Kittler, Harald (2013). A clinico-dermoscopic approach for skin cancer screening: recommendations involving a survey of the International Dermoscopy Society. Dermatologic Clinics, 31(4):525-534, vii.

Abstract

Dermoscopy is useful for skin cancer screening, but a detailed approach is required that integrates this tool into a rational clinical work flow. To investigate clinician perceptions and behavior in approaching patients with skin tumors, a survey was launched by electronic mail through the International Dermoscopy Society. After 4 months, the responses were analyzed and significant findings calculated. Considering the current approach of study participants in examining patients for skin cancer, an up-to-date system of triage is presented in this review, which aims to promote an improved diagnostic accuracy and more timely management of skin malignancy.
