Innovation in Dermatology
The shortage of qualified healthcare personnel is one of the health industry’s major problems. The World Health Organization projects that there will be a shortage of over 13 million healthcare professionals by 2035. When we specifically talk about dermatology, many people suffer from skin problems, and comparatively, there is a shortage of professionals in the dermatology field.
However, developing more sophisticated telecommunications, imaging, and information transfer technologies is helping dermatologists treat more patients. Using the software created expressly for this profession, they can now conduct an examination, make a diagnosis, and lay out a treatment plan, making the treatment process easier.
Technology reduces the burden on dermatological experts by offering tools for more precise disease diagnosis and treatment selection and by assisting patients in better managing their condition. We are at the beginning and have just started using sophisticated algorithms to detect skin cancer, and 3D printers can produce synthetic skin to fill tissue gaps. Dermatologists can build up their knowledge regarding these technological advancements through dermatology meetings.
Advancing AI in Dermatology
Due to its extensive clinical, dermatoscopic, and dermato-pathological image library, dermatology has assumed the lead position in implementing AI in the medical industry. In addition, computer algorithms are rapidly assisting dermatologists with illness identification, particularly in cases like malignant melanoma. Many AI studies currently focus on skin disorders, such as skin cancer, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and onychomycosis.
Modern AI’s fusion with other digital technologies, like smartphone cameras and apps, creates new possibilities for better educating people about their dermatological health.
Skin Analyses Using Apps
An increasing number of skin cancer diagnosis applications have appeared over the past couple of years, allowing users to examine their skin using only their smartphone and AI algorithms. Examples of these apps include Miiskin, UMSkinCheck, MoleScope, and SkinVision. Some apps send images to a dermatologist, while others offer immediate feedback or useful reminders for self-exams and doctor’s appointments.
Incredible Lasers to Treat Skin Issues
Nowadays, laser therapy methods for various skin problems have a wide range of dermatological uses. Laser technology has already made significant strides with gadgets that go beyond the cosmetic realm into cancer treatment and laser-assisted drug delivery. The use of more accurate “robotic surgeons” to perform aesthetic surgeries, treat skin malignancies, and address other skin issues may become more common in the near future.
From Where Can a Dermatologist Build Up Their Knowledge Regarding Innovation in Dermatology?
With the new innovation in the industry, every dermatologist needs to update their knowledge and skills to treat their patients better. Being a dermatologist, it is hard to get the time to study and research these innovations. The industry experts have decided to conduct conferences to introduce new technologies to dermatologists in a convenient way.
A dermatology conference provides a valuable opportunity to comprehend Continuing Medical Education hours while building networks with experts and learning the latest advancements in dermatological technologies.
One such dermatology conference that can help dermatologists build up technical knowledge of the latest trends in dermatology is the 7th Middle East International Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine Conference & Exhibition (MEIDAM). This international meeting dermatology 2022 in UAE is conducted to enhance the knowledge of dermatologists with the latest & up-to-date technologies in the field of Dermatology, Dermatosurgery & Aesthetic clinical settings.
