Non-invasive skin cancer test could reduce number of biopsies performed
Added: Wednesday 26 August 2015
Researchers in the UK and Italy have developed a non-invasive skin
cancer test that uses a laser to detect malignant melanoma. The laser
Doppler system measures blood flow in tiny blood vessels to work out
whether the blood is supplying normal skin cells or malignant moles.
This new test may lead to a substantial reduction in the number of
biopsies carried out for skin cancer testing.
