Detecting and identifying skin problems for early medical diagnosis
More people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined. Still, many people let questionable skin issues go undiagnosed for a myriad of reasons, including avoiding going to the doctor's office. Technology has made it so remote evaluation is possible. By widely implementing photo recognition skin evaluations, millions of Americans could be diagnosed and saved earlier and at a higher rate.
The annual cost of treating skin cancers in the U.S. is estimated at $8.1 billion: about $4.8 billion for nonmelanoma skin cancers and $3.3 billion for melanoma.
