Automated Identification of Suspicious Pigmented Lesions
When health care economists in Germany saw the melanoma mortality rate cut by a half when screening was performed at the primary care level, the government mandated the procedure and made it insurance-reimbursable. Private US health insurers are ready to follow suit and are investing. The tool that we are developing will significantly reduce the current high primary care-to-specialist referral rate to a practical level without missing true malignancies. This project seeks to meet that goal with a novel “whole body” optical imaging system.
