A new imaging technique creates detailed three-dimensional images of the deadliest form of skin cancer Melanoma is one of the less common types of skin cancer but it accounts for the majority of the skin cancer deaths (about 75 percent). The five-year survival rate for early stage melanoma is very high (98 percent), but the rate drops precipitously if the cancer is detected late or there is recurrence. So a great deal rides on the accuracy of the initial surgery, where the goal is to remove...
