A similar method to the one used in case of changes on the skin - a non-invasive diagnostics using optical devices to study the structure in the epidermis, basal membrane, and upper part of the dermis of the scalp and hair in detail, with a magnitude of up to one hundred times. This is a relatively new method that works on the same principles as the dermatoscopy of nevi and is used for the early discovery of scalp diseases. It enables us to see the structure of hair and follicles, the skin on the scalp (interfollicular part), and the blood vessels of the scalp. With trichoscopy, we significantly increase the precision and accuracy of scalp disease diagnosis. Now it is possible to differentiate between different kinds of alopecia, the effect of the therapy, and even set a prognosis for the disease. In case an additional diagnostic analysis is needed, such as a scalp skin biopsy with pathohistological analysis, trichoscopy enables us to even determine the place of taking a sample for biopsy to increase the accuracy of the pathohistological analysis.
