Cellphones…A skin cancer diagnostic tool?
A recent article on medGadget, MoleScope Converts Cellphone Into Skin Cancer Diagnostic Tool, states that MetaOptima is introducing a smartphone powered mole tracking device. The device is a small attachment that clips over an iPhone’s camera, the MoleScope then illuminates and magnifies the suspected moles.
The MoleScope is available with its own app, that is used to capture images of the mole and then sends the images to your dermatologist to review. The app also includes a reminder feature, which reminds patients to take images at intervals, and closely monitor moles that may turn out to be melanoma tumors.
