FotoFinder präsentiert handyscope®: mobile Dermatoskopie für iPhone 5

FotoFinder, Hersteller von medizinischen Bildsystemen, gibt die Neueinführung seines mobilen Dermatoskops handyscope® für iPhone 5 bekannt. handyscope® wird in den USA anlässlich der Jahresversammlung der Amerikanischen Akademie für Dermatologie (AAD) vom 1.-5.

Das neue handyscope® für iPhone 5 verfügt über ein besonders leichtes und schlankes Design und einen einzigartigen TwinLight-Modus, der die Vorteile der polarisierten Dermatoskopie mit denen der Immersion verbindet. Mithilfe einer Umschalttaste können Ärzte bequem zwischen den beiden Modi wechseln und eine farbige Leuchtdiode zeigt auf einen Blick, welcher Modus aktiviert wurde.

Das neue Modell erlaubt Ärzten, Bilder mit oder ohne Kontakt zur Läsion aufzunehmen. Dazu kann der Tubus mit Glas-Kontaktscheibe entfernt und durch einen offenen Tubus ersetzt werden, was die Untersuchung von erhabenen Muttermalen, Basalzellkarzinomen oder Gefäßen erleichtert.

Bereits seit 2010 unterstützt handyscope® Ärzte bei der Diagnose von Hautkrebs. Das neue handyscope® wird mit der passwortgeschützten handyscope® App genutzt. Mit lediglich einem Fingertipp können Ärzte eine Aufnahme am Bildschirm einfrieren, speichern, bewerten und verwalten. Des Weiteren können sie die Aufnahmen mit Patientendaten und Kommentaren verknüpfen sowie mithilfe der virtuellen Patientendiagramme der App eine Lokalisierung zuordnen. Einzigartig und exklusiv beim handyscope® für iPhone 5 ist eine spezielle Aussparung im Gehäuse, wodurch Ärzte das Gerät optional mit einem Monitor verbinden können, damit Patienten die Untersuchung mitverfolgen können. Darüber hinaus wird das Aufladen des iPhones mit angeschlossenem handyscope® ermöglicht.

Die Aufnahmen können von der App in einen sicheren privaten Bereich der cloud-ähnlichen FotoFinder Hub Web-Datenbank geladen werden. Nachdem die Aufnahmen dort gespeichert wurden, können Ärzte von weltweit anerkannten Dermatoskopie-Experten, welche die Aufnahmen innerhalb weniger Stunden beurteilen, eine zweite Meinung zu verdächtigen Muttermalen einholen.

„Die Neueinführung von handyscope® für iPhone 5 ist das Ergebnis einer Vielzahl von Rückmeldungen seitens der Ärzte und berücksichtigt die neuesten Anforderungen an moderne mobile Dermatoskopie. Zusätzliche Merkmale wie die Hub Web-Plattform und der Zweitmeinungs-Service sind Teil einer umfassenden und sicheren Speicherlösung und bieten ideale Voraussetzungen, um Hautkrebs noch früher erkennen zu können. Somit ist handyscope® das einzige Gerät für eDermoscopy®“, so Andreas Mayer, Geschäftsführer von FotoFinder Systems.
