Use of 3D Computer-Assisted Diagnosis Raises Sensitivity of Malignant Melanoma Detection

New imaging technology might change flow of biopsies to dermatopathologists

Dermatopathologists will be interested to learn about new imaging technology that significantly boosts the accuracy of this methodology to analyze images of the skin and diagnose malignant melanomas.

Although still in the research stage, these technology advances demonstrate how advanced imaging solutions, in tandem with computer-aided diagnosis, may allow dermatologists to evaluate patients without the need to harvest a biopsy and send it to the pathology laboratory for diagnosis.
