At Your Appointment
At your appointment you will be seen by a melanographer who is specially trained to identify and image suspicious-looking spots. You won’t see a dermatologist at your appointment.
Molemap Spot Check
You will show the melanographer your spot of concern (the melanographer cannot select the spot for you). The melanographer will use a dermatoscope to inspect the spot and will take a photo of where the spot is located on your body.
The melanographer will use a specialised Molemap camera to image the surface of the spot and underneath it.
Molemap Skin Check
You will be given a gown and asked to dress down to your underwear. The melanographer will provide you with a comprehensive head-to-toe skin check using a specialist handheld device called a dermatoscope.
The melanographer is only looking for spots of concern on the day and will image these spots using a specialised Molemap dermoscopic imaging camera.
The melanographer will also take photos of where on your body the spots are located. If there are no identifiable spots of concern on the day we will let you know and you won’t receive a report.
The melanographer will provide you with important skin cancer information and education.
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 spots of concern as well as those that may change over time.
All such spots 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 spots.
This creates a baseline record of your skin allowing us to monitor changes over time. The melanographer will provide you with important skin cancer information and education.
After Your Appointment
After your appointment the melanographer will securely forward your imaged spots to our dermatologists – who work via telemedicine – for review and diagnosis.
Within 10 days of your appointment you will receive a comprehensive dermatologist report which includes comments and any recommendations for treatment.
We don’t provide treatment – you will need to return to your GP or specialist and they will discuss options with you.
Medicare and Private Health
There are currently no Medicare rebates available on our services. Private health members should consult their policy provider.
