Miami Cancer Institute Opens Multidisciplinary Skin Cancer Clinic

Miami Cancer Institute announces the opening of its Multidisciplinary Skin Cancer Clinic, including the regions’ first (1 of only 12 in the world), 3D whole body photo-imaging system designed to improve the accuracy of diagnosing melanoma and other skin cancers.

The new technology, also known as the Vectra, uses 92 cameras that take simultaneous photos of the body in one second, and then creates a 3D view of the surface of the skin. This allows the dermatologist to potentially evaluate every suspicious lesion on the skin, both by physical exam and with the use of other sophisticated technology available in the clinic.
The Multidisciplinary Skin Cancer Clinic at Miami Cancer Institute will focus on early detection and treatment of melanoma, in addition to treating patients with all types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, Merkel Cell tumors and other rare tumors of the skin. The program’s team of experts includes dermatologists, surgical and medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and plastic and reconstructive surgeons.
