VTT’s invention detects early stage skin cancer in seconds

 

VTT hyper-spectral camera VTT has developed a light-weight and accurate hyper-spectral camera that allows examination of large skin areas in a few seconds.

If commercialised successfully, the price of the innovation would be determined by the production volume. "For example, if you manufacture 1,000 cameras, one would cost roughly 10,000 euros," estimates Saari.

The preliminary results are promising," says Noora Neittaanmäki-Perttu, a doctor in training at the skin and allergy unit of the Helsinki University Central Hospital.
