DermoGenius ultra handpiece

Camera hand-piece

This ergonomic design contains cutting-edge technology:
An excellent optical system "Made in Germany" in combination with a proprietary 5 MPixel camera delivers high resolution images exceeding Full-HD. The handling is intuitive, and the weight (only 220 g) guarantees ergonomic operation.

Mobility

A quick move from one examination room to the next, to your second practice or to a home visit is easy thanks to the standardized USB camera interface, which allows you to work on different PCs.

Image acquisition

We utilize for DermoGenius ultra high quality opto-electronics “Made in Germany”. The standardized image acquisition is an indispensable condition for a reproducible image acquisition and image analysis. This includes color standardization, shading correction and constant imaging parameters. The camera calibration procedure is an integral part of the DermoGenius software, requires only one image of a calibration card and is done only once a quarter to compensate the slow aging process of LEDs and camera sensor.

2 acquisition modes

  • Live mode: It is used for quick mole screening without predefining a localization as usually done with an optical dermoscope; first the image of a lesion is taken, then the localization is assigned.
  • Standard mode: First the localizations are defined, then the pictures are taken one after another down the list (lesion after lesion).

Localization and image gallery - all at a glance

All images are stored – patient and localization related – in a data base, the structural basis of the extensive DermoScan software. Images made with a digital camera (macroscopic images) can be stored in the non-localization-specific photo folder, e.g. total body photos, which also can be used as localization photo.

In the gallery all images of a patient are displayed together with all relevant data (e.g. date of examination or excision and image comments), offering quick overview of all images of the treatment of the patient. The gallery display allows highly comfortable image management, facilitating the selection of lesions in follow-up controls through a chronological arrangement of images.

This allows a simple choice of lesions for follow-up examinations and thanks to the chronological display ensures an easy image management. Each image in the gallery can of course be displayed as a single image in maximum resolution. The inbuilt zoom function enables an optimal assessment of details in structure and color of a lesion, which can also be displayed in a side-by-side comparison of up to 4 images.

It is also possible to search for an image by the ICD10 code and add an individual comment to an image.

A date of excision can be entered and assigned to the corresponding image in the gallery. It is clearly flagged (red bar) that the lesion was excised.

Additional Features

Documentation: The excellent image quality does not end at the monitor screen; printouts or digital files (PDF), i.e. from findings or overview images simplify the internal documentation in other patient management programs and could be transferred to referring doctors or be given to the patient.
Multiuser and Networking Capabilities: DermoGenius ultra is as stand-alone or multiuser system in a network available. Especially in larger practices and clinics network solutions are usually mandatory and will be appreciated. If needed each PC in a network can be used as image acquisition and evaluation station. We will be happy to find together with you the optimum solution for your enterprise.
Safety: The system is a medical device (Class I) and is compliant with the Medical Device Directory and the EU directive 93/42/EWG
Service: You expect a good quality and competent service feature and no elaborate and expensive service contracts. Our service features include hotline, remote servicing and exchange service, all what makes your working easy and minimizes system off times. Also our robust system design serves this goal (i.e. no moving parts or motors) and makes regular service intervals by the manufacturer obsolete.
