||Prevention of work-related skin diseases: Teledermatology as an alternative approach in occupational screenings
||Oct. 2009, Vol.61, No.4, p.224-230. Illus. 40 ref.
||This cross-sectional study was aimed at determining whether teledermatological examinations were equally sensitive and specific at detecting skin lesions as conventional face-to-face examinations. When examining skin conditions of 100 male wet workers, tele-examinations tended to assess the skin condition more critically than face-to-face examinations. Teledermatological examinations are sufficiently sensitive in detecting early signs of hand eczema, although signs for chronicity may get overestimated. Implications of these findings are discussed.
