Non-invasive diagnostic technology

Early diagnosis of melanoma is key to survival. However distinguishing early melanoma from common benign skin lesions can be challenging. We are at the forefront of medical research in early melanoma diagnosis.

Confocal Microscopy

Optical Coherence Tomography

Advanced Dermoscopy

Specialised Medical Photography

 

Our use of non-invasive diagnostic technology promotes early diagnosis of melanoma, while minimizing unnecessary surgical procedures and biopsies. Our benign to malignant ratios are between 2:1 and 5:1, contrasting with non-specialist services for which rates of benign excisions are considering

 
 

Non-invasive treatment

Where appropriate, we prescribe non-invasive topical therapies for skin cancer management, supervised by our team of expert registered nurses.

 

Through our multidisciplinary meetings, we have access to prescription of specialist therapies for locally advanced and inoperable BCCs and SCCs.
