Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The purpose is to teach dermatologists how to increase diagnostic accuracy of pigmented lesions, especially melanoma, by using the dermatoscope. . The audience is dermatologists and dermatology residents. . This is definitely a valuable reference at a reasonable price. I would recommend reading it from cover to cover." (Patricia Wong, Doody's Review Service, March, 2009)
