Abstract

Dermoscopy has clearly had a profound impact on the clinical diagnosis of pigmented lesions. It has been shown not only to be useful in the early diagnosis of melanomas but also, more recently, for the diagnosis of nonpigmented cutaneous malignancies. In this article, the authors will briefly explore the evolution of the use of this diagnostic technique along with how dermoscopy may be best utilized with future technologies.
