MedX’s SIAscopy technology allows individuals with concerns over potential skin abnormalities to be seen by physicians at select Primacy locations. If a mole or lesion appears suspicious, the person will have the option of being scanned using MedX’s proven Siascopy technology, and the scan will be forwarded to a dermatologist who will complete an assessment within 72 hours. This technology could dramatically reduce patient wait times to have a suspicious mole or lesion, diagnosed by a dermatologist and allow potentially life-threatening skin cancers to get expedited treatment.
