The University of Queensland’s Dermatology Research Centre, Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and State Government’s Queensland Institute for Medical Research are turning iPhones into personal skin scanners so patients can detect suspicious spots.

The iPhone accessory Handyscope attaches to the iPhone camera, has a 20x magnification capacity and a polarised light that goes deeper into the skin to show lesions clearer making it more effective than the naked eye for melanoma detection.
