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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
