Pocono Medical Care Advanced Dermatology and Canfield Scientific, Inc. Announce Advances in Melanoma Management

MILFORD, PA, Summer 2003

Richard Buckley, MD and Canfield Scientific announced the addition of DermoGenius advanced melanoma detection systems to Pocono Medical Care Advanced Dermatology in Milford, Pennsylvania. The DermoGenius Ultra, a computer aided digital dermoscopic system for the imaging and analysis of moles and a diagnostic aid in the detection of melanoma, is now in use at Pocono Medical Care Advanced Dermatology’s Skin Cancer Imaging Center.

The DermoGenius Ultra is a self-contained digital system that captures high-resolution dermoscopic images of moles. More importantly, these images are digitally analyzed and compared to a database of normal moles, dysplastic moles and melanomas. A score is generated indicating the potential of a mole being benign or a malignant, facilitating early detection of melanoma. DermoGenius can also assist physicians in minimizing the number of moles excised unnecessarily by helping physicians to recognize benign moles.

“The DermoGenius Ultra system is the product of a team of highly skilled German scientists, physicists, informatics specialists and physicians from the US and Europe,” said T.W. Bialoglow of Canfield Scientific. “We are very excited to bring this technology to physicians in the United States.”

“Melanoma is growing faster than almost any other form of cancer --we now see more skin cancer in our practice than ever before,” said Richard Buckley, MD of Pocono Medical Care Advanced Dermatology. “DermoGenius’s ability to help detect melanoma early, when it is still very curable, makes it a powerful tool for improving patient care.”

Patients in need of a DermoGenius skin scan can contact Pocono Medical Care Advanced Dermatology now for an appointment or more information at 570-296-4000.
