Your assistant in dermatology diagnosis.


The everyday life of a doctor, whether in dermatology or general medicine, is becoming increasingly complex and intensive. Additionally, time is usually short. These circumstances make it hard to know all facts by heart and still be up to date.

DermaCompass was developed out of this need. As an interactive digital source of reference, it makes the treatment of your patients faster and more reliable. Its vast image gallery offers support for differential diagnoses to back up your decisions. It is always up to date and close at hand on your desktop and in your pocket.
