|End date||June 2014|
|Trial size||126 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02009085, KH 2012|
In this study a fluorescent contrast dye is applied to a suspicious skin lesion.
Images are acquired and processed. The information is used to develop a prediction model for the presence of malignant transformation in the skin.
Skin lesions are under suspicion for skin cancer.
Correlation between imaging and pathology.
time frame: No long term follow up is necessary.
time frame: up to 1 day
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
