The incidence of malignant melanoma is increasing at an alarming rate. As the clinical outcome of the disease strongly depends on the localization of the lesion, early detection at the initial stages of development is critical. Here, we suggest spatial characterization of melanoma based on the presence of endogenous stable free radicals in melanin pigments.(More)
Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy has been successfully employed to determine radiation dose using alanine. The EPR signal intensity reflects the number of stable free radicals produced, and provides a quantitative measurement of the absorbed dose. The aim of the present study was to explore whether this principle can be extended to provide(More)
