Mapping of moles

Mapping of moles consists in acquiring on a computer both macroscopic and dermoscopic images of moles. Dermoscopic images are acquired with an appropriate camera equipped with a lens that is applied on each nevus to collect images that are not visible to the naked eye.

Mapping of moles is aimed at evaluating changes in the appearance of nevi over time. In this case nevi may become dangerous and must be removed so as to prevent their degenerating into a melanoma.
