Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The purpose is to teach dermatologists how to increase diagnostic accuracy of pigmented lesions, especially melanoma, by using the dermatoscope. ... The audience is dermatologists and dermatology residents. ... This is definitely a valuable reference at a reasonable price. I would recommend reading it from cover to cover." (Patricia Wong, Doody's Review Service, March, 2009)
