Dermoscopy is a non-invasive in vivo technique that provides illumination and magnification (10x) of cutaneous structures not visible with the naked eye. 


There are two types of hand held dermatoscopes: oil-immersion and polarized light devices. Oil immersion dermoscopy allows a better visualization of nail and mucosal lesions while polarized light devices allow better visualization of vascular structures.
