Become a "Skin Checker" today

Research demonstrates that early detection of skin cancer requires the patient to be more involved.

Studies suggest that up to 70% of skin cancer cases are initially noticed by the patient themselves or their family/friends rather than a medical professional. Additional research shows that survival rates of skin cancers heavily rely on early-stage diagnosis- for example, early-stage melanoma has a survival rate of over 98%. In contrast, melanomas treated at a later stage have a survival rate of only 16%."

In a primary care setting the combination of dermoscopy and short-term SDDI reduces the excision or referral of benign pigmented lesions by more then half, while nearly doubling the sensitivity for the diagnosis of melanoma.

Reviews

What the most recent literature says about our approach to aiding you in the early detection of melanoma.

"I have waited a long time for DermDetect to offer services in our area." 
"The MoleScope APP is amazing! Now I can connect easily for a Virtual consult with an expert without the travel expenses. I still see my local doctor for treatments if needed. It is good to help your doctor improve your care by getting an expert opinion first!

The biopsy reminds me of the history of hysterectomy. DermDetect provides a safe non-invasive proven way to stop those unnecessary cuts on normal tissue. Using dermoscopy we look for changes over a 90 day period. No change = No biopsy! We have Virtual Consults with an academic dermatologist that can advise you via Zoom. Fast, convenient, and efficient!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is DermDetect?

Founded in 2016, we are an outpatient dermatology imaging service that is available to everyone that is concerned about skin cancer and wants to use the very best technology to improve outcomes.

Does my doctor need to order it?

No. Everyone can participate and register online. Your doctor will be provided free access to DermEngine so you both can review the results together. By doing this together, you may be able to avoid a biopsy on a normal mole and/or detect melanoma in-situ. There are published papers that describe a 50% reduction in normal biopsies and a 50% increase in early detection!

How do I get the results?

We provide a powerful APP that will work on any smartphone or tablet. Before you leave our office, you will be able to log in and see your images. Not only can you see your images, but you can also take more and then easily share with our academic dermatologists if you want their opinion for only $18. 

Are my results secure and private?

Yes! The APP requires a secure login just like your bank. Your images may be seen by our academic dermatologists. They will color-code each Dermoscopic image. If you see a RED or Orange spot, you need additional medical care. If all your spots are GREEN, you still need to monitor each spot using the APP to look for changes. The 3D Avatar makes this simple!

Is this Total Body Photography?

Yes, only better! The 3D Avatar makes it much easier and the software helps you find, track, and compare over time. Find new spots when they appear and see if they grow. No change is good! Now you can be certain and be proactive with your care. We call it FBI "Full Body Imaging". It costs only $99 so get yours today!

Can my doctor or I take and add images?

Yes. We sell the same Dermoscopic attachment we use so that you and your doctor can easily compare images and spot changes at the earliest possible time.

Why should I pay for this if my insurance will not reimburse me?

DermEngine is new and yet widely used all around the world. The US healthcare system takes time to recognize new technology that potentially adds costs, even if it may save lives and money. We recommend using your HSA account. Please remember that unless you exceed your deductible for the year, you are paying for the exam that may improve your outcome regardless of coverage! When your employer pays it is a benefit for all!

Why do people avoid seeing the doctor for skin cancer?

We think it is due to the only reimbursable diagnostic test that they have available today. It is called the surgical biopsy and most insurances reimburse the costs of their service. With the MoleScope APP and our noninvasive imaging technology, we can help reduce the need for biopsy by 50% and we increase the diagnosis of thin melanoma by up to 50%! Currently, you must pay for the FBI or ASCS while we collect the evidence to convince them to pay. The average biopsy costs are $500 and it leaves a scar with risks of infection.  

Are there other options to pay the costs?

Yes! Introduce us to your employer and when they offer the ASCS or FBI to their employees as a benefit, they take the expense and everyone gets the advantages. Our FBI testing is only $8.25 per month for annual exams. Since most employers are self-insured, they may actually save money with early detection that saves their worker's life!

Your dermoscopy images are reviewed by an academic dermatologist at OHSU

Secure access to a powerful workstation so only your doctors and you can see your skin images

The most advanced web-based solution and you control it on an APP

OHSU uses color-codes to identify lesions for follow-up. Not a diagnosis

You are a participant for a reason! The academic dermatologists at OHSU will assign a color to each spot. Use the 3D Avatar to locate a spot and then click on it to see the clinical image next to the dermoscopy image. Note the color of the spot. Green = Routine Follow-up. The other colors have meaning too.

RED = Immediate attention

Green (normal annual follow-up); Orange (virtual biopsy with reflectance confocal microscopy, or short term 3-4 week dermatoscopy follow-up); Red (immediate attention from a healthcare provider is recommended – e.g., physical biopsy(shave/punch)); Black (lesion was already removed but remains in the history); and Blue (lesion image quality is insufficient and needs to be retaken).

Color-Codes 

What does it mean?

Double-check with your doctor before they biopsy

If you have any spot that has been color-coded "RED" you need to see your local medical professional as soon as possible. Most appointments are 2-6 weeks after the ASCS.
DermDetect will help train your doctor to use "SmartSnap" on the DermEngine workstation. In only 1-2 minutes they can capture a new image of the RED spot and look for changes with you. Side-by-side or using the "Flicker" with overlay makes it easy to see if the lesion has changed. No change may delay a biopsy! If you see the change it confirms the need to have one now!

Double-check is SDDI~

Sequential Digital Dermoscopy Imaging is SDDI and you can only do it when you have had the ASCS. Double-check is performed by your doctor prior to their decision to biopsy. 
Look for change the easy way with the powerful DermEngine "Intelligent Dermatology" workstation.
DermDetect will give your doctor training and access for FREE. (You paid the cost with the ASCS!)
Now during your next visit, you and your doctor can look for changes together in only a few minutes!
The literature says that you can have melanocytic cells and if they are stable or not growing, you may be able to leave it alone. 
Obviously, if you see change, do something. Your doctor will love ASCS with "Double-check".
