There are several multispectral imaging systems developed or under development to aid physicians in the diagnosis of melanoma. These systems use illumination of the skin in different spectral bands in the visible and near infrared (IR). One such system, MelaFind, is still under development; it acquires images in ten different spectral bands from 430 to 950 nm . Another system, SpectroShade, has been described and evaluated in a prospective study by Tomatis et al. . This system acquires images in 15 bands ranging from 483 to 950 nm. Yet another system, Siascope, uses eight bands from 400 to 1000 nm to illuminate the lesion and surrounding skin .
