Seminars

TELEDERMATOLOGY AND 3D SKIN SURFACE IMAGING

Presenter: Professor H. Peter Soyer, Chair in Dermatology,  Director, Dermatology Research Centre, The University of Queensland, Diamantina Institute, Director, Dermatology Department, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane

Date: Friday 16 August, 11.00 am

Venue: Institute for Glycomics, Griffith University Gold Coast campus, Lecture Theatre (G26 4.09)


Abstract

Melanoma incidence continues to increase across many populations globally and there is significant mortality associated with advanced disease highlighting the need for improved early detection. Recent research has shown that the application of modern telecommunications and imaging technologies have enormous potential to transform current standard practice. Teledermatology through video conferencing, mobile dermoscopy attachments and data store-and-forward services promises to improve healthcare outcomes, especially in remote areas with limited access to specialists. Emerging 3D skin surface imaging technology generates high-fidelity 3D avatars of a patient’s skin for more efficient comparison to better identify developing lesions. The ACRF-supported Australian Centre for Excellence in Melanoma Imaging and Diagnosis (ACEMID), led by the University of Queensland together with the University of Sydney and Monash University, will be implementing these technologies and validating new healthcare practices to achieve the vision of a world without melanoma.
