What is Mole Mapping?
Total body photography, or mole mapping, is an effective means of monitoring pigmented lesions over time. Tracking changes in skin over time to identify whether something is new or how it has changed—as opposed to one-off lesion-specific imaging—is one of the best ways to detect skin cancer early.
- A full-body scan can be captured in 3-5 minutes
- All photos are encrypted and stored in a secure, cloud-based HIPAA-compliant infrastructure
- Reference marks provide accurate sizing information for detected lesions
What can I expect during my session?
During your first session a baseline set of 13 photos will be taken using SkinIO’s state-of-the-art image processing and mole-mapping algorithm. The photos become immediately available for your dermatologist to reference during any subsequent in-person exams.
How can I detect any changes?
The photos can help educate patients about what to look for, and patients also have access to them at any time so that they can refer to them during their own skin self-exams.
During follow-up SkinIO photo sessions, skin changes are accurately tracked by directly comparing the initial baseline photos to new photos through the use of SkinIO’s comparative image processing algorithm. The artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled solution automates mole-mapping and matching in order to flag new or changed spots, providing a visual reference for the dermatologist to better target areas of interest during in-person exams.
