Lessons from II Russian Congress of Dermoscopy

В аудитории Конгресса по дерматоскопии

The Second Russian Congress of Dermoscopy was summoned by Russian Society of Dermatoscopy and Optical Diagnosis of Skin during VII IFDC in Moscow on March 19 and 20, 2014. The Society, having just renewed its executive board and declaring the ambitious Program at the fall of 2013, reported on the recent developments in the field. Unlike the previous congress, the agenda skipped the sessions on optical coherence tomography and fluorescence imaging, focusing only on dermoscopy, with key messages as follows:

  1. The 'innovations programme' of 2009-2013 is declared successful. The Russian HD digital dermatoscope (RDS-1) is produced serially and commercially available, Russia holds the patent. All RDS-1 devices are interconnected with dermoscopy network, allowing for instant remote automated diagnosis and machine vision with augmented imaging in real-time (PKAD client and server complex, installed in 26 regions of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine).  
  2. Cloud network of peers is developing, the separate server dermoscopy.ru to be launched in fall of 2014.
  3. Russian Expert Corps in Dermoscopy is summoned and will be acting as self-regulated entity.
  4. A cheaper version of dermatoscope with optional digital imaging is under development.
  5. The adaptor device connecting any traditional (cheap) dermatoscope with virtually every affordable digital camera is produced since 2013. The Society offers free adaptors to the clinicians actively promoting dermoscopy.
  6. The sophisticated RDS-2 dermatoscope is expected to enter production no later than mid-2015.
  7. Although the Society voted to support Russian editions of major dermoscopy textbooks, only original Russian monographs and textbooks on Dermoscopy will be promoted since 2014. The Society issues support statement for 2 original editions in 2014.
  8. The Society has decided to support EuroDermoscopy survey, conducted by IDS. National coordination group is installed on behalf of Society, with members active in all Federal Districts of Russia and CIS representatives. The questionnaire is translated in Russia, to be distributed in Q3, 2014.
  9. The Society has decided to support EuroMelanoma project, enhancing the Melanoma Day in Russia with clinical contests and offering all participants instant second-opinion service on May 26-28, 2014.
