Mole Map

What is mole mapping?
Mole mapping provides a photographic record of the location and size of your moles on the skin surface. It may be useful for patients with many moles, or those with a history of melanoma. Some patients simply just want a record of what their skin was like at a certain point in time, for future comparison with new or changing lesions. Mole mapping is an important tool in the early detection of skin cancers, when combined with a skin check.

At Chevron Advanced Medical, we offer mole mapping via total body photography using the Dermengine platform.

Your mole map appointment starts with a consultation with the doctor, who will obtain your medical history and discuss the mole mapping process. This involves taking photographs of your skin from the front, back and sides using a DLSR camera. Your images will then be uploaded onto our dermatology software for analysis.

Mole-Map technology automatically detects your moles on a body part image and maps them to your 3D Body Map. Mole-Match technology compares your moles to see if they have changed or if any new moles have appeared.
