Total Body Photography

Total body photography (TBP) is an important tool for the early detection of skin cancer, especially in high-risk patients.

What is Total Body Photography?

Using advanced medical-grade technology, a series of high-definition wide-angle photographic shots of your body will be taken by a qualified practitioner.

These Total Body images are securely stored, and enable future comparisons and monitoring of moles, freckles, and new lesions.

Artificial Intelligence software assists with the monitoring and early detection.

Total Body Photography may be appropriate for patients with many moles, a personal or strong family history of skin cancer including, melanoma, or for those who have fair skin and have had severe and repeated sunburn.

If total body photography is a service that you are interested in, you are able to book it online together with a Full Body Skin Check.

Alternatively, please discuss with your Doctor during your Skin Check appointment, and we can advise you if TBP is an appropriate service for you.
