To the Editor: Menzies’ recent editorial1 highlights the clear benefits of dermoscopy in the assessment of pigmented lesions. This is well appreciated by anyone who uses this inexpensive handheld tool on a day-to-day basis (its retail price ranges from A$380 to A$1840). Although the potential value of the device has been documented in both specialist and general practice settings, it would seem that most Australian general practitioners aren’t using this valuable technology.
