Recent standardization efforts of the International Dermoscopy Society have resulted in a proposed format for reporting and communicating dermoscopic findings. This format describes the pieces of information that should be included in a dermoscopy report. To provide computer support for these standardization efforts, we developed a Java program with a graphical user interface for data entry, and a standardized interface to a database system for easy storage of examination data. The user interface presents a template that facilitates the standardized reporting of findings via a number of structured interfaces and interface items, and allows the inclusion of clinical and dermoscopic images in the report. The database component of the system stores all examination data in structured format, allowing our software system to be used also as a patient management tool. To facilitate information transfer, the software system can produce PDF reports of individual dermoscopic examinations.
