Most often, doctors can immediately identify the signs of melanoma through visual examination alone. Visual information, typically provided by a dermoscope or other more advanced tools, is therefore the primary basis for deciding whether further treatment is necessary.
However, in more difficult cases, additional information may be needed to reach a precise clinical diagnosis. Nevisense helps your doctor by providing immediate results based on objective diagnostic information that is unavailable through any other method. The Nevisense method, which uses small electrical impulses to detect cellular irregularities beneath the skin’s surface, is proven in the world’s largest melanoma detection study of its kind.
Unique diagnostic information
Nevisense can be a valuable complement to your doctor’s visual examinations. By providing objective diagnostic data, it helps doctors to make better and more accurate decisions about diagnosis and treatment in difficult cases. This ability to accurately measure your mole can reduce the need for unnecessary mole removals as well as the risk of leaving a potential melanoma undetected.
Many moles are removed unnecessarily
Fortunately, most moles are harmless. But because melanoma is a serious disease that can be difficult to identify with absolute certainty, a mole that is even slightly suspicious is often removed as a precaution. This leads to the removal of many benign moles, causing unnecessary discomfort or scarring for patients.. Nevisense can give your doctor the added information needed to rule out these cases without having to surgically remove the mole.
Faster answers mean faster treatment
When it comes to diagnosing and treating melanoma, timing is critical. If detected and treated early, a melanoma is largely curable. Nevisense gives your doctor immediate objective information, making it possible to quickly determine which steps are needed in your treatment.
The Nevisense procedure is simple, painless and can be performed during the visit to the doctor. The harmless electrical impulses sent into the skin’s surface by the measuring probe are so small that the only thing you’ll feel is the probe touching your skin.
