Here’s what the Sydney-based company says about its upcoming model:
SolarScan enables suspect lesions to be monitored for changes that signal malignancy.
SolarScan is designed for ease of use in a busy practise. Its efficient user interface allows for rapid acquisition and processing of patient and lesion data.
Calibrated image storage allows future comparison of changes in patient lesions. SolarScan is the only digital dermoscopy system with calibration traceable to a common colour standard ensuring lesion reproducibility between visits…
SolarScan Sentry, featuring Polartechnics patented automated colour calibration system is now in a compact award winning console. The console has been designed for minumum weight and equipment footprint for convenience to the user. All attachments are directly accessible to the operator. The specially designed handpiece features a 5 megapixel 3-chip digital video camera providing improved lesion monitoring, a stand which protects it from damage and USB attachment for easy storage and mobility.
