Pump-probe imaging of melanin identifies metastatic potential of melanoma

Journal Article

Two-color pump-probe microscopy produces chemical contrast between melanins in skin. Increased eumelanin fraction corresponds with worse melanoma prognosis. The spatial heterogeneity of the melanin fraction, both on a cellular and sub-cellular scale, also indicates malignancy. © OSA 2012.
