Here at Coastal Skin & Laser we offer skin checks with a total body mapping service using FotoFinder technology.
Total body mapping is performed in our especially designed body mapping room by capturing clinical images of all body areas. The camera slides up and down a stand for fast and consistent photography. Captured images are displayed immediately on-screen and directly and securely stored in the patient file.
When you return for your follow up images – comparisons are made quickly and easily and the technology will automatically highlight changes to pre-existing moles as well as detecting new moles.
After the mapping is complete, the doctor will assess the highlighted moles and use the powerful dermatoscope to capture up close images of any moles that look suspicious in nature.
A plan will then be made with you and your treating doctor on the course of treatment.
This can incorporate the following:
Medicare card holders receive a rebate of $39.10. DVA Gold card holders will be bulkbilled for this service.
This may be offered throughout your body map session. If 10 or more pre-malignant lesions are treated, this fee may be involved. Medicare card holders will receive a rebate of $35 back to their account.
This is a follow up appointment that may be required in between your annual body maps to track changes in pre-existing moles. Medicare card holders will be bulkbilled for this service.
Note: If an excision or punch biopsy is required, there may be an out of pocket fee. Your doctor or nurse will advise you of this at the time.
