About Electro-Optical Sciences
Electro-Optical Sciences is a medical technology company focused on
developing MelaFind®, a non-invasive and objective computer vision system
intended to aid in the early detection of melanoma. EOS designed
MelaFind® to assist in the evaluation of pigmented skin lesions,
including atypical moles, which have one or more clinical or historical
characteristics of melanoma, before a final decision to biopsy has been
rendered. MelaFind® acquires and displays multi-spectral (from blue to
near infrared) digital images of pigmented skin lesions and uses automatic
image analysis and statistical pattern recognition to help identify lesions
to be considered for biopsy to rule out melanoma.
Although the MelaFind® PMA is subject to the FDA's expedited review
procedures, EOS cannot predict either the timing of the FDA's decision on
the PMA application or the outcome. FDA approval is required prior to
marketing MelaFind® in the United States.
