U052 - Medical Photography

Sunday, March 3; 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Describe the key points in capturing consistent before and after patient images to highlight areas of concern.
  • Appropriately compare preoperative photos to same areas postoperatively; relay the necessary components for appropriate photographic equipment and physical area.
  • Determine whether standard photography is acceptable or investment in an imaging system is necessary.


Being a visual specialty, it is not surprising that clinical photography has become essential in the dermatology office. Whether seeing medical, surgical or aesthetic patients, photography is a tool which can assist in documentation, analysis, marketing, and in many other ways. Learn the essentials to improve photography in your clinical practice.
