BACKGROUND/PURPOSE An early diagnosis of cutaneous malignant melanoma is of high importance for good prognosis. An objective, non-invasive instrument could improve the diagnostic accuracy of melanoma and decrease unnecessary biopsies. The aim of this study was to investigate the use of Near-infrared and skin impedance spectroscopy in combination as a tool… CONTINUE READING
