Skin Cancer Check

Vectra WB360 advanced skin cancer screening and surveillance – transforming early skin cancer detection

Early detection is key to skin cancer prevention

Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. At least two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime and every 6 hours someone dies from melanoma. Early detection of melanoma is crucial, as evidence shows surgical removal of melanomas in their early stage, while they are still superficial, usually results in a high survival rate.

Who needs a skin cancer check?

Anyone with one or more of the following risk factors should have regular skin cancer checks by a qualified medical professional at least once a year:

What is mole mapping?

Mole mapping, also known as photomapping, is the process of photographing and recording the size, characteristics and location of moles and lesions on the skin surface. 

By repeating the process at regular intervals, it is possible to detect small changes to existing moles or the appearance of new moles, which can be one of the first indicators of melanoma.

Vectra 3D Total Body Skin Check

The Vectra WB360 is the most technologically advanced skin mapping system available.
Oracle Healthcare is currently the only site in NSW offering this technology to the public.

Vectra WB360 Total Body Photo Mapping Benefits


92 high-definition cameras simultaneously photograph the entire exposed skin surface in one second. Older 2D mole-mapping systems require you to stand undressed for longer periods in different positions whilst multiple images are captured.

High Accuracy

Vectra captures the precise location of all moles and lesions, so there is no guesswork or manual input required. Combining skin checks carried out by trained clinicians, with computer-assisted image comparison, improves the accuracy of skin cancer detection.

Early Detection

Vectra imaging provides a comprehensive baseline record of your skin surface. By repeating imaging at regular intervals, we can detect even the slightest changes in the colour, shape or size of existing moles, and detect the emergence of new moles or lesions.

What to expect at your Vectra WB360 skin cancer check

  • After the procedure is explained, you will remove your outer clothing (usually down to your underwear) and any jewellery, glasses and makeup. A locker will be provided for your belongings.
  • The Melanographer will position you in front of the Vectra camera in the standardised position and capture imaging of your exposed skin surface. The images are stitched together to create a high-resolution 3D model of your body with a highly accurate record of the exposed skin surface.
  • While the 3D model is rendering, a clinician will take a brief sun and medical history and conduct a manual skin check of your scalp, ears, webs of fingers and soles of feet to complement Vectra imaging.
  • Digital dermoscopy is then used to inspect any suspicious lesions. This provides a 15-200x magnification of the sub-surface of the skin, to provide additional close-up detail of specific moles and lesions beyond what can be detected by the human eye alone.
  • All digital dermoscopy images are tagged to the 3D model.
  • Any lesions of concern are referred on to your dermatologist or skin doctor for further review and management. Tele-dermatology reporting of the images can also be arranged with our partner consultant dermatologist.
  • You will be provided with a USB of your imaging to share with your GP or dermatologist.
