      FDA approved this year.  Supposed to detect melanoma without biopsy.  Anyone had this used on them?  Only can be done by derms, not patients by themselves.

          Presumably only on skin.

                  You still have to have a biopsy to make sure.  Lots of press on it but not useful in long run.
