Trichoscopy: Easing the Diagnosis of Hair and Scalp Disorders


What is Trichoscopy?

Trichoscopy is a diagnostic procedure based on dermoscopy. It is used to evaluate hair and scalp and diagnose various hair and scalp disorders. It is performed by observing the hair and scalp under a magnifier and light, using a manual or a video dermoscope. The magnification can be many fold, from 10-fold to 70-fold magnification. It is a very simple and non-invasive technique that aims at diagnosing the hair or scalp disorder by studying and evaluating their structures. This technique has helped the dermatologists big time in the sense that it has eliminated the need for biopsies. Even when a biopsy is needed, trichoscopy is helpful in identifying the exact site for biopsy, so that the biopsy may provide accurate results. Trichoscopy has substantially improved the diagnostic abilities for the doctors and has aided in providing early and effective treatments.


Effectiveness of Trichoscopy

However, the effectiveness of the diagnosis depends upon how accurately the doctor studies the hair and scalp structures. If the dermatologist does not correctly understand the significance of the structures shown by trichoscopy, and makes any erroneous interpretations, the whole objective of the procedure shall fail. Also, a clinical context is necessary. If the patient is diagnosed without any clinical context, with dermoscopy alone, trichoscopy will give less accurate results. So, precision, experience and expertise are a must for performing trichoscopy, so that best results are obtained.
