Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition melanoma
Treatments digital photographs loaded onto a mobile device, skin exam reminders, social support network
Sponsor University of Pennsylvania
Start date February 2015
End date December 2016
Trial size 69 participants
Trial identifier NCT02520622, 821426

Summary

The primary aim is to determine the impact of using digital photographs on a mobile device versus printed photographs on skin self-examination rates. The ease-of-use and overall satisfaction with the two exam modalities will be evaluated. Secondarily, the impact on melanoma thickness at detection, melanoma detection, biopsy, and office visit rates will be evaluated. The study involves patients in the Pigmented Lesion Clinic that have received total body photography for skin monitoring.
