Full body mapping software underpins melanoma detection

A telemedicine-powered network has been launched to support the roll-out of the Vectra 3D imaging system for melanoma detection in Australia.

Initially developed for cosmetic purposes, the technology uses integrated software to map and monitor pigmented lesions and diseases of the skin and represents the world’s first use of 3D imaging for melanoma detection.

The recently launched Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) Australian Centre of Excellence in Melanoma Imaging and Diagnosis, which involves the University of Queensland, the University of Sydney and Melbourne’s Monash University.

UQ dermatologist Peter Soyer said the technology enabled researchers to track moles and skin spots over time using full body mapping.
