International Confocal Microscopy Working Group Established to Advance Practice of Reflective Confocal Microscopy
Date:2/25/2008

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Confocal Microscopy Working Group, an independent group of medical professionals and students, has been formed as a means to promote the betterment and increased use of reflective confocal microscopy (RCM) in patient care.

The Working Group is open and welcoming new members worldwide. Dermatologists, dermascopists, dermatopathologists, medical students and other professionals interested in learning more about RCM should consider joining the working group. RCM is a new medical imaging technology that noninvasively provides cellular resolution images of the skin. These images can assist physicians in identification of skin disease and monitoring treatment.

At the first meeting, which was held at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) 66th Annual Meeting in San Antonio earlier this month, the Working Group established organization and membership guidelines, opportunities for collaborative research, and opportunities for training and recent scientific research in RCM.

The International Confocal Microscopy Working Group's mission is to create an international collaborative consortium that educates, encourages and promotes research by the medical community on the discipline and practice of RCM.

Created by leading dermatologists with international affiliations, the International Confocal Microscopy Working Group intends to lay the groundwork to create broad acceptance of RCM for the diagnosis of skin cancers and conditions. The Working Group founders include Dr. Salvador Gonzalez of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York) and Ramon y Cajal Hospital (Madrid); Dr. Giovanni Pellacani of University of Modena and Reggio Emilia; Dr. Josep Malvehy of Hospital Clinic Barcelona and CEDILP; and Dr. Susana Puig of Hospital Clinic Barcelona and CEDILP.
