FDA Cleared

Embracing Innovation: DermaSensor’s Handheld Skin Cancer Detection Device — revolutionizing the detection of skin cancer with spectroscopy and AI technology

In the realm of healthcare, advancements in technology continue to redefine the landscape, revolutionizing the way diseases are diagnosed. Just this year, the field of dermatology has seen significant progress with the introduction of DermaSensor’s FDA-cleared, handheld skin cancer detection device. This device, equipped with AI technology, has garnered attention for its impressive 96% sensitivity in detecting skin cancer. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits and potential impact of this innovative device.

Prompt Cancer Detection Saves Lives

Skin cancer is one of the most prevalent and potentially deadly forms of cancer. The key to successfully treating and managing this disease lies in early detection. DermaSensor’s handheld device offers a game-changing solution, enabling physicians to proactively monitor patients’ skin health and detect potential skin cancer as soon as possible. Doctors can then intervene promptly, potentially leading to better patient health outcomes. Studies that compared PCPs’ detection of skin cancer when assisted by DermaSensor, compared to using their standard clinical assessment alone, found that the device decreases physicians’ missed skin cancer by 30-52%*

Accuracy and Reliability

The integration of AI technology with DermaSensor’s device elevates its diagnostic capabilities. The device utilizes advanced algorithms to analyze the captured skin tissue samples, swiftly identifying moles with concerning spectroscopy features. With its high 96% sensitivity for detecting cancer, the device stands as a highly accurate and reliable tool in the hands of physicians assessing patients’ suspicious lesions. This accuracy has also been shown to translate into greater confidence in management decisions, reducing the risk of unnecessary care and providing peace of mind for patients.

DermaSensor’s handheld device is designed with user-friendliness in mind. Its compact size and intuitive interface make it easily accessible to physicians who are concerned about their patients’ skin health. The device is non-invasive, painless, and requires minimal training to operate effectively.

Empowering Physicians

Beyond its benefits for patients, DermaSensor’s device empowers physicians in their day-to-day practice. By providing a reliable and efficient tool for rapid skin cancer assessment, it allows doctors to streamline their diagnostic processes, enabling them to see more patients and allocate resources more effectively. The device acts as a valuable assistant for skin lesion assessment, enhancing the capabilities of physicians, and ultimately improving patient care.

“We are entering the golden age of predictive and generative artificial intelligence in healthcare, and these capabilities are being paired with novel types of technology, like spectroscopy and genetic sequencing, to optimize disease detection and care.”

Cody Simmons, CEO of DermaSensor, Inc.

Cost-Effective Solution

The DermaSensor device presents a cost-effective solution in the field of skin cancer detection. With its high sensitivity and accuracy, unnecessary referrals and additional diagnostic procedures can be minimized, reducing healthcare costs for patients, payers and healthcare providers. This cost-effectiveness makes the device an attractive option for healthcare facilities whose goal is to optimize their use of resources while maintaining high standards of care.


DermaSensor’s handheld skin cancer detection device, enriched with AI technology and boasting an impressive 96% sensitivity to detecting cancer, represents a significant milestone in the field of dermatology. This point-of-care diagnostic medical device provides rapid real-time skin cancer risk results. With its accuracy and ease of use, this innovative device has the potential to transform the way our healthcare system approaches skin cancer detection and diagnosis. By empowering physicians, this innovation brings hope for a brighter future in the battle against skin cancer. Embracing this remarkable innovation marks a significant step forward in our fight against this prevalent and potentially life-threatening disease.
