In addition to professionally sourced dermascopes that tend to be expensive are several low end devices that connect wirelessly to a smartphone. What would be the minimum specifications of a device to produce a picture that could then be sent to a dermatologist for analysis? IE: magnification (IE: 1000x vs 200x, etc.?), lighting (number of LEDs?), megapixels (minimum?), what have you?
For example, would the "Basic" low end version (currently $99 at Amazon) be "a joke"? Or would it be adequate for a yes/no analysis for melanoma?
If it is inadequate, at what point do the specs become acceptable to a pro for analysis?
I expect to spend some time in a country largely dependent on telemedecine.
