New Westminster, BC (PRWEB) July 8, 2008
Opticom Data Research performs skin mole analysis on mole images that are submitted through its Web site. The company uses its MoleSense software to analyze these moles and then an automated process compares the analysis results to 100s of skin cancer images available on the Internet. This is a new service by Opticom Data Research.
A report is emailed to the individual who submitted the mole image. The report includes the Web address of cancer mole images that are most similar to the submitted mole in terms of color variations. In addition, the report includes evaluation of the submitted mole's asymmetry and border irregularity as analyzed by the MoleSense software.
Developed by Opticom Data Research, MoleSense measures and analyzes moles on the skin. The software automatically detects the border of moles, measures and analyzes the ABCD features (Asymmetry, Border irregularity, Color variations and Dimension) and records the measurement results.
MoleSense is intended for people who have multiple moles (perhaps hundreds) and who need to monitor their size, shape and color. The MoleSense product includes hardware (a camera rail and an optional remote switch) and software (for image acquisition and analysis).
MoleSense can be used as a part of a mole mapping procedure, in which the size, shape and location of moles over the entire body are mapped. A report that includes the image of moles (with a ruler plotted on the image) and information about the image settings can be printed with a click of a mouse.
MoleSense comes with an extensive online Help system that includes step-by-step instructions for using MoleSense, instructions for mounting a camera on the rail and for connecting the remote switch, a tutorial, and explanations of all the features of MoleSense.
MoleSense is a trademark of Opticom Data Research.
Disclaimer: Opticom Data Research uses an automated process to analyze similarities between moles that are submitted through its Web site, and 100s of mole images on the Internet that are tagged as "skin cancer" or "melanoma." Opticom Data Research is NOT responsible for the diagnosis of the Internet moles (i.e. whether specific moles are indeed cancerous) nor does it claim that these similarities are medically significant. Use the mole analysis report for educational purposes only. It is NOT designed to replace doctor visits, regular self exams of moles in front of a mirror, or any other mole monitoring measures. The report should not be used for diagnosing skin cancer or any other medical problems.
