Mole Max II Imaging
MoleMax II is a computer system which uses a skin microscope with polarising filters to obtain magnified images of specific lesions. The software programme allows for location of these images on an avatar. The specifics of the recording allow for direct comparison of the magnified image of the skin lesion so that short-term follow-up (usually at 3 monthly intervals) can be performed. This has been shown to be of great use in early detection of some melanomas. In comparison to Total Body Photography, MoleMax ll is more useful for follow-up of specific lesions which have been identified either during the skin check, or by patients.
MoleMaX ll is also a great tool in allowing patients see what skin lesions look like with the magnification used by the skin cancer doctor when your skin check is being performed.
