Skin cancer detection 2.0 / The future of skin cancer diagnosis is connected

20.10.2011
At Medica 2011, FotoFinder presents the future of early skin cancer detection. In the center of attention is the fast diagnostic exchange between doctors using mobile communication technology.

With handyscope for iPhone and the corresponding App, FotoFinder has linked dermoscopy with smartphone technology.

Now, the new online-platform Hub allows doctors to upload handyscope pictures to their private webspace in the web-database via a secured connection to store them and request a rating from international skin cancer experts. Suspicious moles can be immediately sent to the experts to confirm the initial diagnosis with a second opinion.

This opens up new possibilities for teledermatology: also patients without access to specialists can get best diagnostic quality in case of skin cancer suspicion. They can benefit from their doctor's network and count on an accurate and fast diagnosis. Thanks to the early skin cancer detection, the chance of healing can be improved substantially.

"Hub and handyscope lead the way to widespread skin cancer prevention as the second opinion service gives patients worldwide the chance of early detection with precise diagnosis", explains Andreas Mayer, CEO of FotoFinder Systems.

The Hub works with handyscope, the first mobile connected dermatoscope. The precision engineered lens is connected to the iPhone and allows taking mole pictures with up to twentyfold magnification. The brilliant microscopic pictures show important details of moles at a glance.

FotoFinder Systems:

The German company was founded in 1991 and is a worldwide leading manufacturer of imaging devices for skin cancer diagnostics, aesthetic medicine and clinical trials. Thanks to subsidiaries and a global distributors' network, FotoFinder Systems has a worldwide presence.

iPhone is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
