Trichoscopic digital imaging is one of the safe, accurate and non invasive method of assessment of donor area for pre transplant evaluation that aids in further plan of action. Our study aimed to calculate the hair density, hair follicular unit density, grouping of hair, average hair per unit, total number hair follicles and follicular units in the safe donor zone. Thorough donor area assessment prior to the hair transplantation is very important to assess the yield of grafts and over all treatment outcome. It is useful in planning the utilization of the grafts for present and future surgeries depending on patient’s age and progression of baldness

Keywords: Androgenetic alopecia, Digital imaging technique, Hair transplantation, Safe donor zone.
