    Researchers invent method to advance non-invasive melanoma identification using radiomic signatures

    Biopsies have long been considered the diagnostic standard for melanoma, a globally worsening public health problem that has emerged as the deadliest form of skin cancer. Researchers have explored alternative ways to diagnose melanoma, using different imaging techniques to try and reduce the reliance on biopsies. “Performing biopsies can result in pain, anxiety, scarring and disfigurement for patients, as well as a considerable cost to the health care system,” said Mohammad Avanaki, assistant professor of biomedical engineering and director of the OPIRA Laboratory at Wayne State University. “However, imaging devices suffer from various drawbacks that result in limited specificity or ...
