Peter Soyer, MD, academic dermatologist, professor, The University of Queensland Diamantina Institute, discusses the role of technology in melanoma.

In high-risk and ultra high-risk patients, a special surveillance program must be developed, says Soyer. It is not enough to be seen by a physician once a year.

Soyer says that “innovative surveillance” utilizes technology like artificial intelligence and smart phones, possibly aiding in the diagnosis of skin cancer and melanoma.
