NICE has assessed the VivaScope 1500 and 3000 (MAVIG) imaging systems for skin cancer lesions to help the NHS decide whether to use these products.

NICE has said these systems show promise but more research is needed before they can be used in the NHS.

The VivaScope 1500 and 3000 are microscopes that help a doctor to see the different layers of skin tissue and assess if a skin lesion, such as a mole, might be cancerous.
