Latest skin cancer technologies

You’ll find that the technology that underpins the service you receive at Northern Beaches Skin Cancer Clinic is cutting edge. It has to be – it’s your life on the line! You’re likely to have at least one, if not several, of these technologies used as part of your skin cancer consultation.

DermLite DL3

DL-DL3-0008The DL3 has been developed to be the tool of choice for the world’s leading skin cancer experts. Precision-engineered and crafted from solid aluminium, it is the first handheld DermLite to integrate a 25mm four-element lens, which offers greatly reduced optical distortion and a sharper image across the field of view.

Twenty-one high-powered LEDs produce approximately 30% more illumination in cross-polarized mode to create a brighter image. In other words, it means that your Dr can see all your spots more closely and monitor any changes that happen more easily.



microderm320The professional image system for early recognition of skin cancer and image documentation with up to 120-fold magnification and HDplus image quality.

microDERM is essential for progressive early recognition of skin cancer and image documentation. The examined skin lesion is directly displayed on the screen and can even be shown in different magnifications between 15 and 120 fold at the touch of a button on the camera.

Microprocessors, integrated in the  microDERM camera, adjust illumination intensity and colour mixture, so that there is a constant image quality for the follow-ups with your Dr over the years – it’s a very unique feature.

High quality standardized images are an indispensable requirement for reliable diagnosis.

Furthermore, clinical images of large skin areas can be made realistically by use of the macro function and can be printed in best photographic quality in order to document successful treatment.

The microDERM imaging system was developed within the course of the worldwide largest study for computer-assisted early recognition of skin cancer -“DANAOS“. After the image has been captured the integrated DANAOS  system can calculate a classification value based on the world’s largest multi-centre study for computer-aided early detection of skin cancer. Borderline lesions can then be classified reliably and quickly by their dermoscopical relevant features using the ABCD rule.

Due to a close cooperation between well-known clinics and established doctors worldwide a technologically convincing system with a scientifically substantiated diagnostic support was created. 

Decorated with a number of scientific and design awards, microDERM sets internationally new benchmarks in the field of computer-assisted early recognition of skin cancer.
