Techniques in melanoma assessment: Dermoscopy and biopsy 1
Early detection of melanoma is crucial to improving patient survival, but the challenging nature of differential diagnosis of suspicious skin lesions can be daunting.
This comprehensive interactive module will give you the evidence-based tools to identify pigmented lesions using dermoscopy, understand the most appropriate type of biopsy for your patient and assess when a patient is indicated for a sentinel lymph node biopsy.
This learning module is suitable for Skin Cancer GPs, General Practitioners, Nurses and other clinicians.
