Smartphone Skin Cancer Dermatology

The University of Michigan not too long ago released a new smartphone app that’s designed to support you do self-examinations for skin cancer.

The cost-free app, known as UMSkinCheck, operates by taking 23 (naked) photos of your self and analyzing them for moles and legions. The app will also have beneficial information and tools associated with skin cancer.

I wonder if smartphone cameras are actually of a high enough resolution but for this to be really efficient. Of course, it’s by no means going to be infallible, but will this really detect skin cancer unless it’s currently quite far along?

Greater to have something than nothing I suppose.
