BACKGROUND The accuracy of digital epiluminescence microscopy (D-ELM) as an adjunct to clinical examination for the diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions (PSLs) has seldom been evaluated. OBJECTIVE To compare the accuracy of the combined clinical/D-ELM (C/D-ELM) examination with that of the clinical examination alone. METHODS A total of 3,372 PSLs from 1,556 consecutive patients referred to a skin cancer clinic underwent clinical examination and a combined C/D-ELM examination. The reference… CONTINUE READING
