Integra Healthcare is proud to sponsor the Skin Safe campaign, designed to save lives both through appropriate skin care and through regular skin cancer screening, which is even more crucial in the Cayman sun.
Early identification of melanoma saves lives. With the right screening technology, such as that at Integra, Melanoma can be identified at the earliest possible moments. That’s our goal.
Have your AI-driven skin cancer screen annually. Identify Melanoma EARLY.
The Case for Early Detection
at 5 years post diagnosis if melanoma remains localised (early)
at 5 years if melanoma has spread to regional lymph nodes
at 5 years if melanoma has spread to distant parts of body (late)
Early Detection Saves Lives
The thought of any cancer is scary. But scarier is the difference between early and later detection. Identified early, where melanoma is localised and not too thick, 98% of individuals will be alive at 5 years post-diagnosis. This drops to just 23% survival when the cancer has spread to more distant parts of the body. This is our aim – the earliest possible detection. It saves treatment costs too, as earlier treatment is generally simpler treatment. Regular skin cancer screening is especially vital in Cayman.
State of the Art ScreeningWe are privileged to have access to the very latest AI-driven skin cancer screening, called Automated Total Body Dermoscopy. The non-invasive scanning technique generally takes less than 15 minutes to comprehensively capture the whole body and identify specific moles that warrant a closer look. What’s more, after you have been scanned once, each subsequent scan not only looks at you anew but also compares these new images to the previous scan, reliably identifying moles that have changed.
Cost & InsuranceThe maximum charge for Total Body Mole Mapping is $200.24 KYD and this may be covered by your insurance. The fees we charge are Cayman Standard Fees for this scanning procedure. Additionally, if the ATBM scan flags up moles for further investigation, separate charges may apply, although these are also generally covered by your insurance, and also at Cayman Standard Fee rates. We will always inform you of charges before you incur them.
Step 1 - History
Step 2 - Scan
Having taken a history, we will then conduct the simple, non-invasive full body scan, using our Automated Total Body Dermascopy FotoFinder, the very latest in AI-driven, body-mapping technology
Step 3 - Evaluation
If the total body scan identifies areas or moles that warrant further investigation, this will then be conducted by our dermatologist, either immediately or in a new appointment swiftly arranged.
