Dr. Gianfermi’s FotoFinder helps you document over time the skin and various melanin spots and recognize, as early as possible, pathological alterations. This can sometimes save lives.
This cutting-edge Total Body Mapping automated technology is based on the “two-step digital evolution control method,” a combination of whole-body photography and dermatoscopy recommended by opinion leaders worldwide for screening at-risk patients.
The ATBM technique is chosen by Dr. Gianfermi. Based on the “two-step method” for digital tracking, it intelligently combines whole body photography and digital dermoscopy.
ATBM is the only automated polarized light whole body mapping system that documents AND analyzes the entire body surface in minutes. The cross-polarized light whole body photos provide remarkable “macrodermoscopic” information on the structure of individual lesions.
The unique “Bodyscan” helps you detect new and evolved nevi quickly and automatically. The Moleanalyzer software gives a malignancy score on each individual nevus.
Early detection of skin cancers offers better chances of cure, especially in the case of cutaneous melanomas.
In France, there is no organized screening program for skin cancers. Their early detection therefore relies either on your doctor’s initiative, or on yours if you have spotted a potentially suspicious lesion (wound that does not heal, pimple or scab that persists or evolves, brown “spot”), or a mole “different from the others”.
On average, 100,000 skin cancers are diagnosed each year.
I think the ATBM bodystudio from FotoFinder has the potential to change the way we do digital monitoring. Typically, we select lesions with a manual dermatoscope and then image and monitor them. The potential I see in this machine is that instead of focusing on a single lesion,I look at the whole body and then do the side-by-side comparison because I don’t need to go further into the morphology of an individual globule.
I need to know if a lesion is evolving symmetrically or asymmetrically and that’s the information I get with whole-body photography in polarized light.
