The Associated Press: New device uses light to screen for melanoma:    'via Blog this'

"The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a first-of-its-kind device, called MelaFind, that makes detailed, digital images of skin growths and uses a computer to analyze them for signs of cancer, offering a sort of second opinion to doctors.
