Abstract: Teledermoscopy?involves the use of dermoscopic images for remote consultation and decision-making in skin cancer screening.We sought to analyze the potential benefits gained from the addition of dermoscopic images to an internet-based skin cancer screening system.A randomized clinical trial assessed the diagnostic performance and cost-effectiveness of clinical teleconsultations (CTC) and clinical with dermoscopic teleconsultations.A total of 454 patients were enrolled in the trial (nCTC?=?226, nclinical with dermoscopic teleconsultation?=?228). Teledermoscopy improved sensitivity and specificity (92.86% and 96.24%, respectively) compared with CTC (86.57% and 72.33%, respectively). Correct decisions were made in 94.30% of patients through clinical with dermoscopic teleconsultations and in 79.20% in CTC (P?
