Mole mate is a painless, non-invasive and fast diagnostic tool for screening moles on your body. This system makes use of a skin-imaging technology called Spectrophotometric Intracutaneous Analysis (SIAscopy) for detecting early and treatable melanomas (malignant tumours associated with skin cancer) to avoid biopsy or the removal of non-cancerous moles.
Mole mate’s skin-imaging technique helps your doctor in diagnosing abnormalities 2mm beneath the skin’s surface. This technique provides five distinct images of the skin, which can be helpful in the diagnosis of cancerous moles:
Your doctor will assess the moles or lesions by placing the skin-imaging handheld scanner over each one. The magnified view of the analysed area will be visible on a computer screen and examined by your doctor. You can question your doctor if you have any doubts during the procedure. An accurate diagnostic report will be provided at the end of analysis. Your doctor will further discuss the therapy options if the results are positive.
