MelaFind is a new, highly sophisticated technology meant to complement a skilled physician’s process for detection of early melanoma. Melanoma often begins deep within the skin, and usually when properly detected and biopsied it is already in a later stage of development. MelaFind allows this boundary to be passed without performing any unnecessary incisions to examine suspect cells. Instead of performing painful biopsies on areas that contain abnormal pigmentation, MelaFind allows for the requisition of actual quantitative data concerning a lesion. Dr. Goldenberg uses MelaFind in his practice to distinguish between melanoma and other types of skin lesions.
