Confocal Microscopy Workshop

You are invited to a workshop on in vivo and ex vivo confocal microscopy, and dermoscopy and pathology correlations.

This workshop is designed for dermatologists, skin cancer GPs, cosmetic doctors, surgeons and their trainees. Even without prior knowledge in confocal microscopy, it will give you a new understanding of the skin in a 3D perspective.
Applications from this workshop include diagnostics, monitoring of therapy responses and margin determinations in the field of skin cancer. Common clinical dilemmas of difficult lesions such as early melanoma, lentigo maligna and amelanotic, ill-defined lesions will also be discussed in depth.
