Dr. Morrow Dermatology is now happy to provide a state-of-the-art service to help you monitor any moles you may be worried about and to provide full body mapping and computerised monitoring of mole changes from year-to-year. Having a regular full mole scan is the best way to be sure other moles are not dangerous or changing.
We are one of the first clinics in Ireland using the automated, Artificial Intelligence (AI) supported, total body mole mapping system (Fotofinder ATBM Master). This equipment scans your body and photographs and analyses the moles (using advanced AI algorithms to compare moles with a large database of mole patterns). It will store the moles captured in the session in your profile so that changes can be monitored in the next consultation.
As a double check, all mole scans are also reviewed by Dr. Morrow (who, with the help of her many years of experience in skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, will add her personal expertise to the analysis) and she will personally consult with the patient by telephone following the scan and arrange prompt follow-up treatment if needed.
Please note the mole scan is carried out by a trained technician and Dr. Morrow will not be present at the scan.
