GPs and specialists can refer their patients to Molemap for a Full Body Molemap surveillance service (up to 60 mins), Total Body Photography, a Molemap Skin Check (up to 30 mins) or a Molemap Spot Check (up to 15 mins). Patients can also self-refer to our services and nominate their doctor to receive a copy of their report.
Many GPs and dermatologists refer their high-risk patients to us for melanoma surveillance and diagnosis. Such patients have:
At Molemap by Dermatologists all patients are seen by a melanographer who is specially trained to identify and image lesions showing features of skin cancer. All Molemap melanographers have completed specialised training accredited by the Australasian College of Dermatologists.
After the appointment the melanographer securely sends the images to our dermatologists – via teledermatology – for review and diagnosis.
Within 10 days of the appointment the dermatologist report is ready and we notify the patient.
The patient can login to the portal to access their comprehensive report which includes images and recommendations for treatment. If the patient provides you with consent, you can also access the report and images via the portal.
We are a detection and diagnosis service so we don’t provide treatment like removing moles. The patient will return to their GP or referring doctor (with our dermatologist report) for treatment options.
The aim of this Cochrane Review was to find out the accuracy of dermoscopy for the diagnosis of melanoma in comparison to visual inspection of the skin with the naked eye. The Review also investigated whether diagnostic accuracy using dermoscopy on a patient in person differed to the accuracy of diagnosis using dermoscopic images of the skin. Researchers in Cochrane included 104 studies to answer this question. Read the full details.
Cochrane, an organization that gathers evidence to help people make the most informed health care decisions, asked the experts to conduct a review of over 100 different studies where dermatoscopes were used to help diagnose melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. The experts analysed data from 40,000 skin lesions where 5,700 tested positive for melanoma.
The expert review found that dermatoscopes can help find a melanoma -- but only in the hands of experienced dermatologists. Read the full article
