The Melafind

The most serious problem that dermatologist face is malignant melonoma. Malignant melanoma, if caught early, is 100% curable. There is now an FDA approved device, called the “Melafind“, which can be used to diagnose early melanoma, in suspicious lesions, non-invasively. If the lesion is suspicious after the Melafind exam, of course, a definite biopsy is performed. But this dematological device can effectively diagnose lesions BELOW the skin surface, which does aid the dermatologist.
The Melafind station consists of a dock and the probe which takes the images to be analyzed.  The machine is based on based on a guided-missile navigation system—will find suspect moles faster, easier, and more accurately than ever before.

This device is a welcome addition to try to diagnose melanoma early, since it kills an average of one person every hour, and it is, by and large, a very preventable cancer.
Here follows a video whch shows how the Melafind works:
