Detection of skin cancer using electric impedance, an electrical model of skin, and statistical methods
"Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of non-melanoma skin cancer. If detected and treated at an early stage it can be cured completely. Currently, a clinical biopsy is the only reliable means of detecting BCC. A technique of identifying BCC and other skin cancers using electrical impedance, which is fast, painless, non-invasive, and inexpensive, could be of great interest to the medical community. This work investigates the feasibility of using electrical impedance to differentiate between BCC and benign lesions."--Abstract, page iii.
