Clinical Photography in the Dermatology Practice
Photography has been accepted for decades as a standard means for documenting dermatologic
conditions and as an adjunct to their treatment, in both medical practice and
research. The emergence of low-cost easy-to-use digital imaging systems has made
good-quality photography more accessible to practitioners, while providing improved functionality
in the clinical environment. Primary concerns are controlling lighting and positioning
to provide a clear record of the patients skin condition and maintaining consistency
over time to assure meaningful comparison of clinical end points.
