Launched by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Dermatology Service in cooperation with the International Dermoscopy Society and leading centers worldwide as a fully web based study.

Our aim is to create a new unified algorithm composed of features that are most discriminatory between nevi and melanoma and have a high inter-observer agreement.

We are seeking volunteers of varied dermoscopy experience levels (dermatologists, family practitioners, and residents alike) to participate as readers. No prior dermoscopy experience is needed.

Each reader will be presented with interactive teaching and testing lessons on dermoscopic diagnosis with feedback from the leading world experts. All participants will be listed on the International Dermoscopy Society UDA Study Group.

In July 2011, at the conclusion of the study, each participant will be informed of their diagnostic accuracy score. Based on these scores, we will be giving prices to 3 residents and 3 attending with the highest scores.

All participants completing the study will be entered into a lottery and 1 will win a dermatoscope (700$ value), 3 will win a dermoscopy atlas and 6 will win a dermoscopy handbook!
