What Is Total Body Digital Photography?
During total body photography, most of your skin is documented with a series of sectional digital photographs. Total body photography (TBP) is a tool used by dermatologists to assess and monitor moles, freckles, and skin lesions to check for skin cancer. Full body photography is often recommended if you have a personal or family history of:
- Non-melanoma skin cancer
- Dysplastic nevi
- Atypical nevi
With total body imaging, your dermatologist can monitor changes in existing pigmented lesions and moles and quickly detect new moles or lesions. It's also a valuable screening tool for melanoma.
A TBP session usually takes just a few minutes. While it may seem awkward or a bit uncomfortable, it's an important tool in protecting your health.
What Are the Benefits of Total Body Photography?
Total body photography is primarily a tool for detecting skin cancer early, especially in people who are considered high-risk, such as those over 50 and patients with a history of skin cancer. In one study, a digital dermatoscope alone increased the chance of detecting melanoma by 17 percent. Total body photography has also been found to improve detection of melanoma that doesn't fit a standard clinical profile.
TBP helps your dermatologist create a map of the moles, pigmented lesions, and freckles on your body. If you have many moles or lesions, this map makes it easy to ensure nothing is missed and changes in size, color, or texture are detected as soon as possible.
