Full Body Imaging For Detection of Lesions and Skin Cancers

Having your skin checked regularly for abnormal lesions and potential skin cancers is a crucial part of your ongoing health management. Many of our patients on the Mornington Peninsula love the outdoor lifestyle the Peninsula provides, making them more susceptible than others to over exposure from the sun. Which is why we have brought in Derm Engine to the practice.

Derm Engine Skin Checks are available for both Existing and Visiting Patients

DERMENGINE Skin Cancer Detection
Derm Engine supports our GPs in the detection and tracking of skin lesions on a patient’s body. It captures images, through photography, and analyses total body images to evaluate skin conditions. 
These images are stored securely in the cloud for future reference and peace of mind. 

Image Matching

Derm Engine can also identify changes to the skin over time to detect skin cancer or other diseases at the earliest opportunity. 

When Should I Get My Skin Checked?

You should consult your GP to get a personal recommendation suited to your skin type and lifestyle. Ideally you would have your skin checked prior to higher exposure periods (Spring, Summer) and then after (Autumn, Winter) to track any changes to your skin. Some people with sensitive skin or who have history of skin cancer are checked more regularly. 

How Much Does It Cost?

Skin checks are part of normal Medicare rebateable services. Costs are time based and depend on individual circumstances. If you are unsure whether you need full body imaging, the best approach is to book in for a standard consultation with your GP who will agree with you the best course of action for your circumstances. At Whole Medicine we see full body imaging as something that is integral to your annual cycle of care, rather than an expensive and irregular exercise. Because of that we try to keep our prices reasonable compared to others. Dr Andrew Crompton and Dr Faran Rizvi specialise in skin cancer detection and can assist you further. Dr Crompton also specialises in the removal of suspect lesions.
