What is FotoFinder?
FotoFinder is a safe, non-invasive, computerized mole mapping system that your physician uses to create an accurate set of photos of your moles. The high-resolution camera is connected to a computer and transfers all photos directly the doctor’s database, giving your doctor the ability to compare your moles with photos from your initial visit, and immediately identify new moles or changes to existing moles on your body. An added benefit of FotoFinder is that your doctor can provide a copy of your photos on CD for self-examination at home. All patients, whether they’re first-time or returning, can feel safe that any changes or new moles will not be missed with the FotoFinder system.
