Trichoscopy Report | TrichoLAB

The trichoscopy report consists of four parts:

  1. 1. Patient's data
  2. 2. x70 images taken with hair units marked
  3. 3. Hair statistics
  4. 4. Conclusions

The report is based on the evaluation of a set of videodermoscopic images of the scalp. These images are subject to an automatic computerized image analysis. Advanced pattern recognition algorithms allow to automatically detect and precisely measure hair, hair follicles and other important objects visible in the images. Detailed data on hair and hair follicles are then used to calculate key statistical factors of the trichoscopic method. Algorithms and computation methods used by TrichoLAB are continuously improved and the experience gained with each performed test allow to enhance the testing precision.

Trichoscopy allows to objectively assess the examined structures. Thanks to this, treatment results may be assessed by comparing significant hair parameters obtained during subsequent tests.

STATISTICS

Derived from x70 images the best estimate of hair density normalized to 1 square centimeter. The ratio of values in different areas has also diagnostic meaning.

Hair shafts identified on x70 images are subject to diameter measurement using proprietary TrichoLAB algorithms with unprecedented precision of one micron. Hair dyeing does not influence the result. Statistical distribution of hair diameter indicates the size of anisotrichosis.

Hair agregated into hair units enables to find the ratio of single versus multihair units. It also indicates the condition of arrector pili muscle (APM).

The number of empty follicles in various areas and different size of its 'yellow dots' manifestation are very good indicators to distinguish DLE, AA or AGA.

CONCLUSIONS

The Trichoscopy Report contains second opinion from the doctors specialized in hair and scalp disorders. It is based both on statistics and qualitative assessment.
