Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer and can spread to the organs and bones. Early detection is key for optimal treatment results. Join Dr. David Granet as he talks with Dr. William Wachsman about an experimental test that could revolutionize the way melanomas are detected. Essentially an adhesive tape strip is used to collect cells from the surface of the skin instead of the usual skin biopsy that is performed on suspicious looking moles. This new concept in detection shows the creative advances in medical science that are possible at an academic medical center with an industry partner. (#23836)
