Complementary information for the detection of malignant melanoma
Nevisense is a safe and painless diagnostic support tool designed to complement a dermatologist’s regular visual examination. In difficult or borderline cases, it allows you to objectively analyze precise information collected from suspicious lesions prior to making a decision whether to excise. Nevisense makes it possible to increase accuracy in melanoma detection, leading to earlier detection and fewer unnecessary excisions. The Nevisense procedure is fast, simple and effective:
1. Skin preparation
Before performing a measurement, the skin need to be prepared for the measurements. This involves that the skin is cleaned with alcohol, and then a moistening process with physiological saline solution.
2. Lesion measurement
Perform the measurement procedure on the lesion to be examined to cover the complete surface of the lesion.
3. Evaluate results
The results of your measurements will be analyzed and displayed on the Nevisense screen after the measurement procedure is finalized. The Nevisense classifier provides an EIS score output reflecting the degree of atypia identified by the method. You can then combine the results of your visual inspection with the added, objective information provided by Nevisense to reach a more informed clinical decision.
