The study found that VivaScope subsequent to dermoscopy might improve the diagnostic accuracy of equivocal skin lesions compared with dermoscopy alone, particularly for malignant melanomas. Furthermore, the use of VivaScope appears to be a cost-effective strategy in the diagnostic assessment of equivocal melanomas and basal cell carcinomas, and in margin delineation of lentigo maligna prior to surgical treatment.

Cancer is an important condition, both in terms of the number of people affected and the impacts on those people and the people close to them. Around one third of a million new cancers are diagnosed annually in the UK, across over 200 different cancer types. Each of these cancer types has different presenting features, though there may be overlap. More than one third of the population will develop a cancer in their lifetime. Although there have been large advances in treatment and survival, with a half of cancer sufferers now living at least ten years after diagnosis, it remains the case that more than a quarter of all people alive now will die of cancer.
