Faculty: Orit Markowitz, MD
Dermoscopy has become critical in the evaluation of pigmented lesions, but pattern recognition alone isn’t always sufficient to make a diagnosis. Orit Markowitz, MD, addresses the unique, “color wheel” approach to solve difficult diagnostic challenges, particularly when it comes to distinguishing between malignant and benign conditions, and thus expedite effective treatment.
- Describe color-wheel dermoscopy and other imaging modalities.
- Identify amelanotic melanomas from other, less dangerous skin conditions.
- Define the potential and limitations of dermoscopy.
