A hand-held camera uses polarized light to reject multiply scattered photons and create an image based on photons scattered from the superficial layers of skin. Roughly, the upper 300 um of skin are imaged. Images of melanoma are shown. More information can be found at http://www.bme.ogi.edu/biomedicaloptics/.
