SkinVision: Dutch App For Diagnosing Skin Cancer
A 62-year-old grandfather from Whangarei, New Zealand, heard about the smartphone app, SkinVision, on the radio that could help diagnose skin cancer. He downloaded it and used it to check a number of suspicious looking moles. All came back clear. But towards the end of that year his wife encouraged him to scan a seemingly unremarkable growth which appeared on his forearm. He took a photo of the lump using the SkinVision app – it came back as high risk and told him he should see his doctor. The app very likely saved his life.
