TrichoSciencePro computer program is a composite diagnostic and analytic software, offering virtually all applicable by today studies in Trichology. The program full version has been developed to target specifically typical scopes of research projects in this field by employing the most complete set of tools and techniques for hairs functioning assessment variety with capability to build customizable calculations and charts, develop reports and conclusions, collect comparison and statistic data, track down each patient information and progress, etc.
Special assessment techniques are required to be performed in order to carry out different diagnostic measurements. For example, the proper technique is essential to complete the Photorichogram study, which originates from the concept of Trichogram study and by now is the only proven method, allowing, besides assessment of the main hair growth cycle phase parameters to establish hair growth rates, which tend to be quite an important criteria, especially in cases when any specific dynamic treatment regimes are being monitored! And measurements of shortly cut hairs in the field of view, besides providing most possible true values of hair densities and diameters, allow to clearly establish any actually new growing young hairs, as well as lost hairs counts on daily basis, when inherited hair loss induced changes in hair growth are being the main subject of consideration.
While simultaneously performed Trichoscopy study, besides hair density, diameter and their deviations assessments in several semiautomatic and manual modes, allows to perform follicular units and various perifollicular signs counts, which also turn to be an important criteria while monitoring specifically male pattern and female pattern hair loss and their associated phases. Certainly, depending on specific study goals, assessments of scalp, hair roots and shafts conditions, performed by this technique, might also be of a greater consideration, however main interest hair criteria variables, listed above and obtained from both diagnostic sessions, are being automatically collected and analyzed by the Trichometry Hair Calculator function, while also allowing to include the additional specialty tests results, if wanted. And by adding certain Outpatient card data, primarily to account for patient's age, sex and ethnic background, calculates a whole variety of statistically important data, which is by adding more information from personal questionnaire is being used to process the Automatic Conclusion report.
In order to further diversify data statistics, this version offers Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (by Zigmond and Snaith) to be filled out for patients in association with monitoring hair changes, if needed. Although, while with the Phototrichogram approach, the "classic" Trichogram test is not being used much lately, this edition also offers a separate diagnostic module for this tecnique, as in research projects, primarily, established by Phototrichogram study hair growth phases may be a subject to cross-verification by another method. Same idea is also applicable for Dermatoscopy module for more in depth scalp changes evaluation, including specific asessments of pigmented lesions.
While the Additional Studies module, designated for Global Photographs study, is also may be mostly required as another way of overall hair density monitoring approach for the most complete follow-up of gradual changes in patients. For example, in research projects primarily some special stereotacting alignment systems may be utlizied to guarantee and present the most accurate results.
