Since the vast majority of remittances are found to be non – malignant, the diagnosis of skin cancer is costly to for the NHS as specialists spend much time diagnosis.

The tool builds on previous research by scientists at CIMMS which rather cumbersome rather cumbersome instrument several years ago. We want to principles principles of the previous model assumed diagnosis by non – imaging available to the practitioners is easier to observe. 3 D when the image on a screen through a USB connection is observed so called 6-light photometric stereo and we intend to develop this idea by merging the information with one hand spectrometer developed by Astron Clinica. Skin cancer experts Frenchay Hospital in Bristol have the UWE team together to ensure that they develop the tool fits the needs of the practitioners. Mr. Robert Warr, Consultant Plastic Surgeon specializing in malignant melanoma thinks that the skin analyzer may have the potential be very helpful in assisting future diagnosis by non – specialists, he said, If it succeeds, this tool will help both the general practitioner and the specialist in the differentiation between benign and malignant lesions of the skin.
