Melanoma is the most lethal form of skin cancer. Early diagnostics is crucial as it significantly enhances the patient-survival rate. However, the clinical diagnosis of early-stage melanoma remains difficult. The IOP project ‘RASKIN’ aims to develop a prototype of a low-cost, easy-to-use photonic device that will help dermatologists and primary-care physicians identify suspicious, pigmented skin lesions. The project will also deliver an extensive set of clinical data to verify the effectiveness of the instrument.
