It is very important to diagnose the cause of hair loss[ known as “Alopecia”] because there are so many causes of alopecia & the treatment for different causes are different. FUT or FUE Hair transplantation is not the solution to each & every alopecia patient. Every person with alopecia are examined with the Tricho-scope , which gives a magnified view of hairs & helps in diagnosing the cause of alopecia . Tricho-scope gives 10 to 1000 times magnified view depending upon the requirement. If the variation of thickness of hairs is seen in >20 % of the hairs, it is a diagnostic feature of Male / Female Pattern Alopecia [Androgenic Alopecia].
