A dermatoscope is a relatively new medical device that enables enhanced examination of a skin lesion using an illuminated microscope. The device allows visualization through the stratum corneum to give a detailed evaluation of the lesion subsurface structures and patterns. This in turn improves the diagnosis of melanoma, atypical nevi, Spitz nevi, BCC, SCC, and many other conditions that are commonly encountered in daily practice by family physicians.
