Historic Milestone Achieved: AI-Powered #ProjectCheckMate Marks a Pioneering Breakthrough in Skin Cancer Detection

In an extraordinary feat, the inaugural deployment of #ProjectCheckMate has ushered in a new era of skin cancer detection.

Over the course of three days, two clinic rooms screened a staggering 189 individuals, capturing 366 clinical images and identifying 55 suspicious spots, potentially averting 12 cases of melanoma, 8 basal cell carcinomas (BCC), and 16 squamous cell carcinomas (SCC).

This groundbreaking initiative, a collaboration between Skin Check Champions and our esteemed partners, has not only demonstrated the remarkable capabilities of Artificial Intelligence and nurse training in regional healthcare, but also represents a significant leap forward in cancer screening. Codenamed #ProjectCheckMate, this venture pioneers a more efficient and effective approach to targeted skin cancer strategy.

Acknowledgements extend to the remarkable dedication and expertise of our partners:

  • UniversitySA, whose commitment to empowering nurses and enhancing healthcare capacity in high-risk communities has been instrumental.
  • SkinSmartAus, whose tireless efforts and unwavering commitment to the cause have set a new standard in training and implementation.
  • Dr. Steve Brooks and the exceptional team at SkinTechMedical, whose enthusiastic reception of this experience exemplified their dedication to advancing healthcare.

Additional gratitude is extended to MetaOptima, whose cutting-edge AI technology played a pivotal role in this milestone achievement. The support of Jarvis Skoda and their fleet of spacious vehicles, as well as La Roche-Posay, whose unwavering belief and provision of vital resources, including sunscreen, was invaluable.

The resounding success of #ProjectCheckMate would not have been possible without the steadfast support of our community, whose likes, shares, donations, and unwavering encouragement propelled us to this momentous achievement.

Together, we are making skin cancer history 🌞🔍🏁
