The Dermatologists' Stethoscope
Introduction by Ms. Noriko Bonafede
Professor Aimilios Lallas is giving an introductory lecture on dermoscopy. He explains that the dermatoscope is like a dermatologist’s stethoscope because they are small, low-cost, and fast to use instruments that are carried everywhere. Lallas emphasizes that dermoscopy is important because it is beautiful and fascinating, and many dermatologists have become addicted to using it in their practice. He explains that dermoscopy is already a present reality and will be even more important in the future.

Dermoscopic Features of Different Basal Cell Carcinoma Subtypese
Introduction by Ms. Noriko Bonafede
Professor John Paoli is giving a lecture on the dermoscopic features of basal cell carcinoma subtypes and how to recognize them. He highlights the common findings of branched vessels, short fine telangiectasias, shiny white blotches and strands, and pigmented structures. He explains that the brown-gray structures indicate superficial locations, while the gray-blue structures are deeper and more invasive subtypes. He shows real dermoscopic images to illustrate these structures.
