FotoFinder Dermoscope®

FotoFinder Dermoscope®FotoFinder Dermoscope® the leading system for digital dermoscopy “maps’’ moles. This technology, the only one available in the tri-state area, is the most advanced computer-aided imaging available for enhanced melanoma detection. This type of diagnosis cannot replace the medical method of diagnosis–and is used as a second opinion. However, the computer is capable of drawing the specialist’s attention to unusual lesions, which he or she might not have observed originally.

FotoFinder makes it possible to analyze single moles for an instant second opinion. The FotoFinder Dermoscope® complements other diagnostic techniques and may help determine which skin lesions require biopsy or removal. The imaging system takes skin cancer diagnosis to the highest level, helping with the early detection of malignant melanoma as well as in the diagnosis of non-melanoma skin cancer like basal cell carcinoma or actinic keratoses. The FotoFinder helps increase diagnostic accuracy and helps to avoid unnecessary excisions!

Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Mohs Micrographic Surgery — Skin cancer is the most prevalent of all cancers. It is estimated that 700,000 Americans develop skin cancer every year. Fortunately, Micahel Crowe, M.D. and Artis Truett,III, M.D. offer Mohs Micrographic Surgery for skin cancer. This state-of-the-art procedure offers the highest cure rate, the lowest possibility of recurrence, and least risk of scarring than with traditional methods. With this highly specialized procedure, the skin cancer tumor is accurately and precisely removed down to its roots, giving it little or no chance to grow back.

Because Drs. Crowe and Truett were the first physicians in western Kentucky to offer Mohs micrographic surgery, they have a combined total of 25+ years experience you can trust. The re-certification status that both physicians earn annually is a testament to their skills and knowledge. If you have a suspicious mole, sore, discoloration or lesion, schedule an appointment today to have it evaluated. If diagnosed early enough, skin cancer can be curable.
