The new handyscope^® for iPhone 5 features a slim design and a unique
twin-light mode that combines the advantages of cross-polarized and immersion
fluid dermoscopy. A quick tap button provides for toggling between both modes
and a LED indicates the chosen light option.

The new model enables doctors to take pictures with or without glass contact
with the skin. Two front pieces – one with a glass contact plate and one
without – allow doctors to view elevated lesions and vascular conditions
without compression.

handyscope^® has been helping doctors detect skin cancer since 2010. The new
handyscope^® is still used with the password protected handyscope^® app. With
one tap doctors freeze, save and evaluate an image on-screen, organize and
manage images, tag images with patient data and comments, and select the
localization using the app’s virtual patient diagrams. A new feature exclusive
to handyscope^® for iPhone 5 is a special notch in the case that allows
doctors to connect the phone to a monitor so patients can follow an
examination, and also charge the phone with handyscope^® attached.

Pictures can be uploaded from the app into a secure private web space on the
FotoFinder Hub, a cloud-like internet platform. Once images are uploaded,
doctors can request a second opinion on suspicious moles from international
skin cancer experts, who rate the pictures within hours.

“The relaunch of handyscope for iPhone 5 is the result of doctors´ feedback
and requirements for modern mobile dermoscopy. Additional functions like the
Hub with web storage and second opinion service create a complete and safe
storage solution and the perfect surrounding to detect skin cancer earlier.
That’s why handyscope^® is the only device for eDermoscopy,” says Andreas
Mayer, CEO of FotoFinder Systems.
