Your Pocket Scan Technology for Skin Cancer Prevention

Apple Technology has coined the term “There’s An App For That” to satisfy millions of consumer needs available through their App Store. What you may not be aware of is a recent application  that monitors moles on the skin.  What is known as Skin Scan, this app is a medical application created for consumers to easily scan and monitor their moles over time in order to prevent skin cancer.  With a simple scan to the area with any Apple iPhone or tablet, this application can check your moles and their development. This idea, to analyze skin lesions by their fractal dimension is a more cost-efficient way to get an analysis of moles than to head to the doctor’s office for each and every concern you may have.  The app is not a doctor substitute for the annual or semi annual check up’s you should attend, however, it may serve as a convenient source for your in-between appointments or mole scares you may come across.  Click here for the app’s web site and additional information.
