Abstract

While the number of occurrences of skin cancer is constantly increasing, the medical industry relies on the same slow and invasive method of detection. Image processing techniques could prove to be a useful diagnostic tool. With a blue light laser, an optical system, and imaging techniques, a noninvasive detection method that produces immediate results could be developed. This paper analyzes the feasibility of developing such a detection device. The evaluation included the safety and effectiveness of using a blue laser for dermal imaging. The data came from research and a preliminary laboratory experiment. The analysis showed that this laser-based method of skin cancer detection is safe, effective, and continued research should be performed in this area.
