Apps aim to detect skin cancer

Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center tested four apps to analyze images of 188 moles, including 60 melanomas. All of these moles were pre-evaluated by a dermatologist.

The best-performing app forwarded the images to board-certified dermatologists to review at cost of $5 per mole, and claims to be accurate 98% of the time.  Some are skeptical.  We are sure that we will soon see a proliferation of early, at home detection apps.
