UMSkinCheck is intended for skin cancer self exam and surveillance that allows users to complete and store a full body photographic library, track detected moles/lesions, access informational videos and literature and fill out a melanoma risk calculator.
A skin cancer self exam is used to identify suspicious moles or lesions that may be cancer or growths that may develop into skin cancer (precancers). Individuals who are at a high risk of skin cancer are encouraged to perform frequent skin self exams and to have full body photographic surveys taken by professional photographers. Using UMSkinCheck, patients will be able to complete a full skin cancer self exam and photo survey, track and create a history of moles and lesions and receive regular reminders to perform follow up self exams and check on lesions that are being tracked.
What's New in Version 1.2
- Worldwide release of UMSkinCheck
- Enhanced notifications for lesion-tracking and self-exam reminders.
- Updated graphics.
Helpful to track, could do better
Had issue with sideways pictures, app froze each time and couldn't save picture ... Had to take without turning iPad to work. Got through ok with two sets of pictures six months apart. Would love to be able to view those sets side by side for each pose. Nice start, great idea.
Won't let me finish the baseline exam
Heard about this on NPR and thought it sounded great. Tried to set my baseline a exam and it wouldn't let me save the pictures half way through. It's bad enough you have to have someone else take the pictures, but then to not be able to get through step one was frustrating. i know this app is free (you get what you pay for) but it needs work! Maybe Ill try again if they fix this.
Picture areas don't line up
The idea here is to take pictures to the scale shown by body outlines o relaid on the camera. The problem is, the outlines extend beyond the field of view of the camera. So the user ends up with sections of the body missing.
