UTMB IRB Approves Resident Initiated Dermoscopy Study

Dr. Matt Petitt, a second year UTMB dermatology resident, was notified by the UTMB IRB that his human subject research study proposal, "The Predictive Value of Dermoscopy for the In Vivo Assessment of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer Margins," has been approved. He is the Principal Investigator on this study, that will be conducted during his upcoming 4 month rotation on Mohs at UTMB. His goal is to determine if dermoscopy aids in the accuracy of clinical margin assessment prior to Stage I Mohs excision. His UTMB dermatology faculty supervisor on this research is Dr. Richard Wagner.
