FotoFinder Releases handyscope: Mobile Dermatoscope for iPhone 5

FotoFinder, manufacturer of medical imaging solutions, announces the launch of its mobile dermatoscope, handyscope for iPhone 5. handyscope will debut in the United States at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Miami, March 1-5, 2013. This new handyscope model enables doctors to better examine a mole through a new twin-light system and various new features.

The new handyscope for iPhone 5 features a slim design and a unique twin-light mode that combines the advantages of cross-polarized and immersion fluid dermoscopy. A quick tap button provides for toggling between both modes and a LED indicates the chosen light option.

The new model enables doctors to take pictures with or without glass contact with the skin. Two front pieces - one with a glass contact plate and one without - allow doctors to view elevated lesions and vascular conditions without compression.

handyscope has been helping doctors detect skin cancer since 2010. The new handyscope is still used with the password protected handyscope app. With one tap doctors freeze, save and evaluate an image on-screen, organize and manage images, tag images with patient data and comments, and select the localization using the app's virtual patient diagrams. A new feature exclusive to handyscope for iPhone 5 is a special notch in the case that allows doctors to connect the phone to a monitor so patients can follow an examination, and also charge the phone with handyscope attached.

Pictures can be uploaded from the app into a secure private web space on the FotoFinder Hub, a cloud-like internet platform. Once images are uploaded, doctors can request a second opinion on suspicious moles from international skin cancer experts, who rate the pictures within hours.

"The relaunch of handyscope for iPhone 5 is the result of doctors´ feedback and requirements for modern mobile dermoscopy. Additional functions like the Hub with web storage and second opinion service create a complete and safe storage solution and the perfect surrounding to detect skin cancer earlier. That's why handyscope is the only device for eDermoscopy," says Andreas Mayer, CEO of FotoFinder Systems.
