Book Description

While science and technology have been moving at speed in the last decade and major investments have been placed in Artificial Intelligence, blockchain technology, 3D printing, and gene editing, medical practice, including cutaneous medicine (otherwise known as Dermatology), is only just starting to follow these technological advances. This book is a timely intellectual investment for cutaneous medicine, addressing these particularly needed areas. It is written for medical educators, dermatology residents, practicing dermatologists, and medical researchers in the area of skin diseases, to alert them all to medical advances and up-and-coming technology and in the hope, it will inspire further novel methodology for the future of cutaneous medicine, in diagnosis and therapy.
