“I have used Siascopy for six years and have found it an invaluable tool.
I chose this technology because it gives me extra information about my patients’ suspicious moles and lesions through the additional views of the skin and helps me and the patients to come to a more informed decision about removal.
Another important aspect of the system is the level of patient reassurance and education that it offers. Often, I see patients who have been to other dermatologists and feel they are just practicing “defensive medicine”, it seems that no matter how frequently they visit their dermatologist, something needs to be removed.
Recently, I have seen two patients who had lesions that I felt needed removal (but) who refused because they felt I was just like the others. After I did the scans of these lesions and told them in advance what I was looking for, they allowed me to biopsy the lesions. Both proved to be malignant.”
