Non-invasive diagnostic test for malignant melanoma
Malignant melanoma has been studied time and time again and finally there is a new, non-invasive diagnostic test that can be used to test for this kind of melanoma. This new technique can detect malignant melanoma accurately without even performing a biopsy.
According to the Nature Scientific Report, the technique uses laser methods to show slight changes in blood flow under the skin and this helps show the difference in non-cancerous moles and malignant melanoma. In the study that was done, there were 55 patients that had atypical moles tested. They agreed to be monitored in the Pisa University Hospital with this laser method. The laser recorded interactions of complexity that took place inside the blood vessels that were beneath the mole.
Malignant melanoma is aggressive and it is best to detect this early. This new, non-invasive diagnostic test for detecting malignant melanoma has proven to work very well. This may just be the breakthrough that doctors, researchers, and specialists have been searching for all these years. This may be the very test that saves someone you know by detecting malignant melanoma early.
