FDA Approves Melafind For Detecting Skin Cancer And Melanoma

FDA Approves Melafind For Detecting Skin Cancer And Melanoma. Good news for anyone worried about skin cancer with the FDA approving Melafind, which the manufacturers describe as a groundbreaking technology for detecting melanomas.

Darrell S. Rigel, MD, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at New York University Medical School confirmed the news :

“MelaFind is a groundbreaking technology and represents one of the most significant advances in early melanoma detection since the advent of the ABCD criteria that our group developed over a quarter century ago … While there have been incremental improvements in imaging tools for melanoma detection, we still primarily rely on our eyes, experience and judgment. MelaFind provides objective information about indeterminate pigmented skin lesions to help us when deciding which lesions to biopsy to detect melanoma as early as possible when it can still be cured.”
