Abstract

Total body photography (TBP) is increasingly used to monitor skin lesions in individuals at high risk of melanoma. Two surveys of U.S. dermatologists demonstrated variable reasons for use and conflicting beliefs regarding TBP efficacy. Although TBP may reduce number-needed-to-biopsy when diagnosing melanoma, there is scarce evidence for TBP use in lower-risk populations and a lack of consensus on optimal TBP use. Thus, we undertook the first U.K. survey to assess TBP rationale, target populations, and protocols.
