At Your Appointment
At your appointment you will be seen by a registered nurse melanographer who is specially trained to identify and image moles showing signs of skin cancer.
Molemap Spot Check
You will show the melanographer your 1-3 lesions of concern (the melanographer cannot select the lesions for you). The melanographer will use a dermatoscope to inspect the lesions and will take a photo of where the lesions are located on your body.
The melanographer will use a specialised MoleMap camera to image the surface of the lesion and underneath it. If there are no identifiable lesions of concern on the day we will let you know, and you won’t receive a report.
Molemap Skin Check
You will be given a gown and asked to dress down to your underwear. The melanographer will provide a comprehensive head-to-toe skin check using a specialist handheld device called a dermatoscope.
The melanographer is only looking for lesions of concern on the day which will be imaged using a specialised MoleMap dermoscopic imaging camera.
The melanographer will also take photos of where on your body the lesions of concern are located. If there are no identifiable lesions of concern on the day we will let you know and you won’t receive a report.
Full Body Molemap
You will be given a gown and asked to dress down to your underwear. The melanographer will complete a comprehensive full body skin check using a specialist handheld device called a dermatoscope.
The melanographer will look for lesions of concern as well as those that may change over time.
All such lesions are imaged using a specialised dermoscopic imaging camera. The melanographer will also take photographs of your entire body that capture the condition of your skin and will use this to locate and track your lesions.
This creates a baseline record of your skin allowing us to monitor changes over time.
After Your Appointment
After your appointment the melanographer will securely send your imaged lesions to our dermatologists – who work via telemedicine – for review and diagnosis.
Within 10 days of your appointment you will receive your comprehensive dermatologist report which includes comments and any recommendations for treatment.
To remain impartial Molemap by Dermatologists doesn’t provide treatment – you will need to return to your GP or specialist for this.
Medicare and Private Health
