Researcher develops skin cancer-detecting app
A Portuguese researcher has created an application for Smartphones that can “quickly and efficiently” detect potential signs of skin cancer.

Luís Rosado, of the AICOS Fraunhofer Portugal Centre, developed the Melanoma Detection app through a partnership with the IPO Portuguese Oncology Institute in Oporto.

Using the phone a photograph is taken and sent via the app to the IPO, where it is analysed using four relevant visual signs of early malignant melanoma: asymmetry, colour, structural differences and irregular borders.
