Selfies may save you a doctor 's visit - one day
February 12, 2014 (WLS) -- Selfies may one day save you a trip to the doctor.
A snapshot of a suspicious mole or rash may give a dermatologist all the information needed to determine whether a visit is necessary. It's called teledermatology.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are behind a small, new study.
They found that in 95 percent of cases in which a biopsy was required, the opinions of the dermatologists who saw a selfie of the skin matched those of the doctors who saw it in person.
