Used prior to making a decision to biopsy, the device helps to automate the current process of diagnosis, allowing rapid scanning of 20 to 40 skin lesions on at-risk individuals. The company is displaying the VRS system at SPIE Photonics West 2014, taking place February 4–6, 2014, in San Francisco, CA. ----- Follow us on Twitter, 'like' us on Facebook, and join our group on LinkedInSubscribe now to BioOptics World magazine; it's free!
