Innovations Pick – Skin Scan

When those Apple commercials say “there’s an app for that,” they really aren’t messing around.   A new application called “Skin Scan” claims to be able to detect skin cancer through mobile devices.  It simply scans a photo of a mole or affected area of the skin and will provide details based on its shape and other details.  If it works it will undoubtedly save lives — and if it doesn’t, it’s going to scare many, many people.  Either way though, more awareness about this deadly disease can’t be a bad thing.
