Skin lesion and dermatoscopy

Skin lesion and dermatoscopy

Session Date:

Workshop: 10.00am - 5pm.
Lunch, morning and afternoon tea are provided

This workshop is intended for beginners, whether or not they own a dermatoscope.

The aim is to increase confidence in diagnosing typical benign skin lesions such as melanocytic naevus, seborrhoeic keratosis, vascular lesions, and dermatofibroma.

You'll learn the common elements of dermatoscopy (lines, clods, dots and structureless areas) and how they are arranged in patterns in benign lesions — loss of pattern often indicates a malignancy.

Spot melanoma, basal, and squamous cell carcinomas at a glance by recognising their clinical and dermatoscopic characteristics.

Regional, close-up and dermoscopic images are essential for referral when diagnosis or management requires expert assistance. We'll aim for an interactive forum.


Registration Fee (add-on to Symposium registration) - $575

Registration Fee, Friday only participants (not part of Symposium) - $630
