    Teledermatology: from prevention to diagnosis of nonmelanoma and melanoma skin cancer.
    Int J Telemed Appl 2011 11;2011:125762. Epub 2011 Jul 11.
    Section of Dermatology, Department of Systematic Pathology, University of Naples Federico II, 80131 Naples, Italy.
    Telemedicine is a rapidly developing application of clinical medicine where medical information is transferred through interactive audiovisual media for the purpose of consulting remote medical procedures or examinations, reducing the time of consultation for patients. Teledermatology as an application of telemedicine was developed in 1995: it turns out to be a gradually more ordinary mean of delivering dermatologic healthcare worldwide and will almost certainly have a greater medical function in the future. In particular, teledermatology can aid in the prevention and diagnosis of nonmelanoma and melanoma skin cancer; telemedicine and teledermatology offer the opportunity to make available consultations with experts also by long distance.

    Usefulness and economic evaluation of ADSL-based live interactive teledermatology in areas with shortage of dermatologists.
    Int J Dermatol 2010 Nov;49(11):1272-5
    Department of Dermatology, Faculty of Medicine, Shimane University, Izumo, Japan.
    Background: To overcome the problem of maldistribution of dermatologists in rural areas, live interactive teleconsultation systems are being used in some countries. However, these systems are not in common use because few evaluations on their efficiency and economic viability were reported.

    Methods: We constructed an easy-to-use asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL)-based live interactive teleconsultation system and conducted 150 trial sessions between two rural hospitals and Shimane University Hospital. Read More

    Virtual Grand Rounds in Dermatology: an 8-year experience in web-based teledermatology.
    Int J Dermatol 2009 Dec;48(12):1313-9
    Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
    Background: Teledermatology utilizes telecommunication technologies for the exchange of dermatologic information across distances. In 2000, we developed the Virtual Grand Rounds in Dermatology (VGRD) as a free, user-friendly platform for dermatologists to present complex dermatologic cases to the international community for clinical feedback, consultation, and continuing education.

    Methods: VGRD was designed using simple graphics to facilitate access in remote and developing geographic regions. Read More

    Diagnosis, diagnostic confidence, and management concordance in live-interactive and store-and-forward teledermatology compared to in-person examination.
    Telemed J E Health 2008 Nov;14(9):889-95
    Department of Dermatology, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri 65212, USA.
    Teledermatology studies have examined diagnostic concordance between live-interactive (LI) and in-person examinations (IP); and between store-and-forward (SF) and IP examinations. However, no studies have looked simultaneously across all three care delivery modalities, and few have measured management concordance and diagnostic confidence of the dermatologist. The purpose of this study was to compare LI and SF modalities with IP with respect to diagnostic and management concordance and to compare physician diagnostic confidence across the three modalities.

    Teledermatology in Missouri and beyond.
    Mo Med 2007 Mar-Apr;104(2):139-43
    University of Missouri-Columbia, USA.
    The practice of teledermatology has grown considerably in rural and frontier areas where access barriers exist. Live-interactive and store-and-forward modalities are used, either alone or in combination (hybrid model). Research has shown that the diagnoses made and management recommended during teledermatology interactions are in concordance with in-person diagnosis and treatment. Read More

    The additive value of second opinion teleconsulting in the management of patients with challenging inflammatory, neoplastic skin diseases: a best practice model in dermatology?
    J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2007 Jan;21(1):30-4
    Department of Dermatology, University of L'Aquila, L'Aquila, Italy.
    Background: Telemedicine is the practice of healthcare using interactive processes of communication to facilitate healthcare delivery, including diagnosis, consultation and treatment, as well as education and transfer of medical data. The aim of teledermatology, just as telemedicine, is to promote best practice procedures and to improve the consistency and competence of health care.

    Aim: To investigate the diagnostic additive value of second opinion teleconsulting in patients with challenging dermatoses, among dermatologists working in two different dermatology departments. Read More

    Australas J Dermatol 2004 Feb;45(1):23-8
    Department of Dermatology, Health Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand.
    We reviewed scheduled interactive teledermatology consultations from 1997 to 2002 between the Department of Dermatology of Health Waikato in Hamilton and remote sites at Taumarunui Hospital, Taupo Health Centre and the Ranolf Medical Centre, Rotorua, in New Zealand.
