Confocal Microscopy - Vivascope 1500
The VivaScope 1500 is a new and revolutionary type of skin imaging device that can help the professionals at Pennsylvania Dermatology Specialists diagnose skin cancer and other skin conditions more accurately. It is a non-invasive, painless procedure that takes just a few minutes to complete.
The VivaScope 1500 works by shining a laser light on the skin and capturing images of the reflected light. These images are then stitched together with sophisticated computer algorithms that create a high-resolution image of the skin’s microstructure, including the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue, down to the individual cell.
The VivaScope 1500 provides high resolution images, which can help a trained professional distinguish between benign and malignant lesions, in a completely non-invasive manner.
The VivaScope 1500 can be used to image a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Skin cancer, including melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma
- Moles / Nevi
- Sebaceous Gland Hyperplasia (Oil Gland Overgrowth)
- Blood Vessel Growths
- Sun Spots & Dark Spots
- Psoriasis, Eczema, and other rashes
- Skin tags
- Seborrheic Keratosis
- Fungal skin infections
If you are concerned about a skin lesion, or if you have a history of skin cancer, the VivaScope 1500 may be an option for you. Please talk to your doctor to learn more about this innovative technology.
