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.
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.
No, Vectra WB360 does not use any radiation, it only uses photography.
Yes, Vectra WB360 is safe for use if you are pregnant as there is no radiation involved.
A bronze package will take approximately 15 minutes. The silver and gold packages will take between 45-60 minutes, depending on the number of pigmented lesions to be imaged.
We recommend underwear you are comfortable wearing for the total body photography and loose-fitting t-shirt and shorts.
Yes, you can eat and drink normally before your appointment.
Bronze packages do require a referral, as the photo mapping needs to be reviewed by your doctor or specialist. Silver and Gold packages do not require a referral, as a doctor will review the photo mapping on site during your appointment, and liaise with your GP and dermatologist if needed.
No, unfortunately mole and skin mapping is not yet covered by Medicare of private health cover.
