SCARD research

Prof Cliff Rosendahl will discuss the recent study into the characteristics, treatment and outcomes of multiple melanomas documented on the Skin Cancer Audit Research Database (SCARD). This study drills down on SCARD data for 637 melanomas treated by 27 Australasian GPs during 2013 and made some interesting discoveries, including: while the majority of melanomas were in situ, in the first three decades most were invasive; older patients had thicker and (not previously described) larger-diameter melanomas; and micro-melanomas (3mm in diameter or smaller) were more likely to be invasive than all larger melanomas. The study also looked at the characteristics of the 14/205 invasive melanomas that metastasised and the nine that had a fatal outcome, and compared five-year survival metrics to national figures. This is the largest study of its type in general practice, globally, and showed that diagnostic and therapeutic management was closely aligned with current guidelines with some differences.

Total body photography (TBP) and digital dermatoscopic imaging (DDI) with FotoFinder

How does TBP with FotoFinder technology incorporate into a skin cancer clinic? In this presentation, Dr Terry Harvey will discuss his own experience as a primary care Skin Cancer Doctor using TBP and DDI as the mainstays of skin cancer detection in his practice. The presentation will cover the artificial intelligence capabilities of FotoFinder and how they can be used in a day-to-day skin cancer clinic. Dr Harvey will also look at what FotoFinder does well and what it could do better.

Is melanoma in-situ real? An epidemic of overdiagnosis. 

What is melanoma in-situ? Biologically, these are intra-epidermal melanocytic proliferations that pose significant risk of progressing to invasive melanoma. Histologically, this is more difficult to define, as clinically concerning lesions are now removed at an earlier stage. Our challenge, and the focus of this presentation, is how we can re-define the concept of melanoma in-situ in the modern age.

Associate Professor Katy Bell 
& Dr Blake O'Brien

9.45AM
