Filled with figures, tables, and schematics, Atlas of Dermoscopy introduces dermoscopy and provides a guidebook for those who use it regularly in their practice. Dr. Alfred W. Kopf, a pioneer in education and in the clinical aspects of malignant melanoma, has joined forces with Dr. Ralph Braun and Dr. Ashfaq Marghoob to produce this concise and practical guide. It can be used as a tutorial for learning dermoscopy, as a quick source during the clinical evaluation of a particular lesion, or as a general reference book. The editors have created an up-to-date resource on what is considered by many to be the standard method for assessing pigmented lesions.
