Triage Amalgamated Dermoscopic Algorithm (TADA) for Skin Cancer Screening

 Tova Rogers, Maria Marino, Stephen W. Dusza, Shirin Bajaj, Michael A. Marchetti, Ashfaq Marghoob
Description: Dermoscopy allows skilled observers to more accurately identify pigmented skin cancers compared to clinical exam alone. In some cases, it can also help identify nonpigmented malignancies. Despite the potential for improved skin cancer detection, a number of barriers are preventing many dermatologists, dermatology residents, and other medical professionals interested in skin cancer management from adopting dermoscopy. Lack of training has been cited as a major hindrance. Nonetheless, the use of dermoscopy is increasing, and with it, interest in educational materials that provide novices an entry point into dermoscopy.
