Anatomical model of skin cancer
Anatomical model of skin cancer demonstrates six different stages of malignant melanoma. Seen from above, the model represents the skin lesions visible in the respective stages, making it possible to classify according to the “ABCDE” criteria. Seen from the sides, the model represents the different depths of melanomas, making it possible to classify according to Clark (levels I to V) and according to Breslow (measured in millimeters). The model holder contains 5 color illustrations, representing different forms and characteristics of malignant melanoma.
In this model, melanocytes:
• are found in the superficial layers of the epidermis;
• invade the entire epidermis, some proliferating to the papillary layer;
• fill the papillary stratum;
• invade the reticular layer;
• invade the subcutaneous screen, while satellite cells are close to a vein.
• Weight: 0.34 kg
• Dimensions: 14 x 10 x 11.5 cm
• Magnification: 8 times
