With handyscope for iPhone and the corresponding App, FotoFinder has linked dermoscopy with smartphone technology.
Now, the new online-platform Hub allows doctors to upload handyscope pictures to their private webspace in the web-database via a secured connection to store them and request a rating from international skin cancer experts. Suspicious moles can be immediately sent to the experts to confirm the initial diagnosis with a second opinion.
This opens up new possibilities for teledermatology: also patients without access to specialists can get best diagnostic quality in case of skin cancer suspicion. They can benefit from their doctor's network and count on an accurate and fast diagnosis. Thanks to the early skin cancer detection, the chance of healing can be improved substantially.
"Hub and handyscope lead the way to widespread skin cancer prevention as the second opinion service gives patients worldwide the chance of early detection with precise diagnosis", explains Andreas Mayer, CEO of FotoFinder Systems.
The Hub works with handyscope, the first mobile connected dermatoscope. The precision engineered lens is connected to the iPhone and allows taking mole pictures with up to twentyfold magnification. The brilliant microscopic pictures show important details of moles at a glance.
The German company was founded in 1991 and is a worldwide leading manufacturer of imaging devices for skin cancer diagnostics, aesthetic medicine and clinical trials. Thanks to subsidiaries and a global distributors' network, FotoFinder Systems has a worldwide presence.

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.
A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
