SIAscopy + MoleMate
Challenge: To improve speed and accuracy of diagnosis and the quality of referrals to dermatology clinics.
Early skin cancer detection.
Solution: In July 2007, Dr Russell Cherry purchased a MoleMate™ device. With 6750 patients on the practice’s books, Dr. Cherry wanted to minimise unnecessary referrals and patient anxiety and at the same time avoiding missed diagnoses and ensuring that any potentially dangerous moles were referred immediately for further, specialist attention. An audit was carried out in April 2008 to determine how effective the device had been both in the context of two week-wait referrals, and overall for the practice.
• 76% reduction in the two-week wait
dermatology referral rate
• 27% reduction in referral rate to
dermatology clinics overall
No missed diagnoses (false negatives)
revealed to date
• Patients personal interaction with the visual imaging process is immeasurably positive
