Melanoma Scan first started in 2004 when the Director Dr Paul Annells saw a need for clinics on the North-Side of Brisbane with a specific focus on Skin Cancer. The first clinic to open was the Toombul clinic and then in 2006 the Mitchelton clinic opened. The latest clinic in Warner has now opened in January 2019
Both clinics are proud to offer the latest in skin cancer imaging technology with 10 doctors who have a special interest in skin cancer and associated conditions.
The dermdoc is a video dermatoscope that allows the doctor to see into the top layers of the skin and gives a detailed image of the pigment making up the mole or skin spot. It also allows an image to be recorded and compared in the future. Comparison over time can help to detect early melanoma and can reduce the need to remove benign (non cancerous) moles.
