Dr Josep Malvehy - University Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain

Dr Malvehy speaks with ecancer at EADO 2017 about advances in imaging to improve speed and accuracy of skin cancer diagnoses.

He emphasises the clinical utility of reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) for non-invasive, high resolution detection of cancerous skin cells within a matter of minutes, if not seconds.

Dr Malvehy also notes the complementary use of RCM with other imaging techniques to gain consensus in diagnosis, though cautions about the cost and training associated with
